    A Million Gracias

    July 19, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    From Maria: I’m super proud of my driving (I mean...minus the bonehead move of running into a castle🤦‍♀️), but this trip was AMAZING thanks to Melinda. Melinda spent months planning where we would go and where we would stay. Ian said, “I don’t know what was my favorite? I liked everything!” I am also so thankful to Melinda’s graduate advisor and friend, Profesora Alicia. Even as we drove the billions of kilometers (I will calculate soon!), Melinda would be texting Alicia to fine tune our itinerary. I can not thank Alicia enough for taking Ian and I under her wing and spending days and evenings with us...showing us around Madrid, correcting our Spanish, teaching us history, discussing current events, and sharing her daughter, Paloma, with us too. This trip has prompted many discussions with Ian of “where should I go to University?” and discussions of history and literature as well. Thank you! Muchas gracias! And Alicia...Encantada.Read more
