European Trip

We have been having an amazing time on our trip, the first to Europe together. We are just now leaving Portugal, after a wonderful time here with family, sunshine, dogs, BBQ fish and artichoke.

It was great seeing Kate, my niece for the first time along with my brother and sister in law. Kate is so cute, everything is new for her. Her emotions show in her face, which she shows by smiling big smiles. Zurich and Basel are beautiful cities, with ornate architecture.

We went for a few days to Spain, seeing the works of Gaudi in Barcelona. They were amazing, especially the Sacre de Familia. It is an amazingly dynamic city, seeing all the mimes on the Ramblas and everything done differently, in the Spanish style, even fast food restaurants being so unique. Then we went to Seville for a couple of days, seeing some Flamenco and eating Tapas in the courtyards. The gardens there are in bloom, with enchanting smells of orange blossoms and other flowers. We will definitely be back to Spain, for the rich culture, friendly people and the newness of it all for us.

Portugal was our next stop, where we stayed with my Dad and step-mum, eating fresh grilled fish and some incredible home-grown artichoke. Yuko loved meeting everyone and playing with their Portuguese Water Dogs, who have webbed feet for swimming in the sea. Seeing the beautiful towns and beaches was great, feeling the sun and fresh breezes of this idyllic place.

We have been lucky to have such an incredible trip together, with more delights to come…
