Tomorrow I leave for Spain and I can’t wait! The temperature is a blazing 98 degrees, which will be a nice change to the mild Midwest summer we’ve had so far. The window A/C unit in our Madrid apartment will be working overtime. Interestingly, I am leaving exactly four months to the day that I was laid off. Four months ago, I had no idea that I’d be here, but I now know this is exactly where I need to be. I feel very different than I did four months ago when my time was at the mercy of my employer. I now have freedom.
“Freedom is not the absence of commitment, but the ability to choose.”
Here’s the (close to) final itinerary:
- Madrid (3 weeks)
- Southern Spain: Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba (1 week)
- Tangier, Morocco (2 days)
- Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain (1 week)
- Prague, Czech Republic (4 days)
