I visited the United Kingdom in college, but I had never been to mainland Europe before. When my in-laws invited my husband and I to join them on a trip, we decided to brush up on our high school Spanish and fly over the Atlantic!*
Here are some of my favorite photos from our travels to Santander, Barcelona, Seville, Toledo, and Madrid.
*Survivable by distracting oneself with at least 2 in-flight movies
After visiting a friend and enjoying the northern coast in Santander, we flew to Barcelona to dip our toes in the Mediterranean and see why Antoni Gaudí is such a big deal (I get it now).
Next stop: Seville. A very old city with incredible architecture.
After Seville, we stayed in Madrid.
Toledo is a short high-speed train trip away from Madrid, so we spent a day there exploring the old city where Don Quixote was written.
Until next time, Europe!
