A Day in Segovia


Since I only had plans for the first half of Semana Santa, I really wanted to take advantage of the open days of the second half of the week and do some exploring.  I had never been to Segovia, even though it’s an easy day trip from Madrid, so I dragged Luis and we went […]

1.5 Days in Dublin, Ireland


Our final leg of the trip was for 1.5 days in Dublin.  Strangely enough, when we told anyone that we were heading to Dublin after Galway, their reaction was always “noooo, don’t go to Dublin!!!”.  We started to doubt whether we made a bad choice by including Dublin in our itinerary, but can you go […]

7 Things to Bring on Your Trip to Morocco


Morocco isn’t like the other cities you’ve traveled to in Europe.  There isn’t a corner pharmacy to buy medications, big supermarkets for your favorite foods and drinks, public bathrooms when you need to go, and easy public transportation to help you get around.  There isn’t a big information desk in the airport, and no free […]
