Sorry, I haven’t posted a lot in the past month. I’m now caught up on school and the school year is coming to an end. I promise I will keep posting more Spain pictures. In the next few week I will be doing some travelling to North Carolina and California, so be watching for those updates.
I’d like to dedicate this post to my travel partner, the person who helped me discover my love for travel. While on my adventures through Italy and Spain, I found a sense of confidence and independence, a feeling that I could do anything. Words cannot express my gratitude for these experiences, new-found confidence, and independence. To be able to travel to luxurious places for weeks at a time and soak up the culture is something I will forever be grateful for. To be able to discover a new passion, something I want to do for the rest of my life, is the best thing anyone could’ve ever given me. Thank you for opening up this new world to me and showing me that I can do this.
Awesome! As I wrote in March 2015, before our trip to Italy:
“For what do I hope? To instill a love for travel. To develop a fascination for new places and cultures, thus bringing pictures, books and history to life. I would want my niece to learn about herself and come away with a sense of accomplishment and confidence that is denied those who constrain their experiences to a narrow environment and limit their understanding of others.
Her style of travel will develop over time. But I hope she returns to Minnesota with a desire to research her next destination. Hopefully, she saved her lessons. And if her style becomes one of independence while carrying light luggage, all the better.”
I will consider my goal achieved! Pat

By Gabrielle Bremer – Through the Lens Photography Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is celebrated by Spanish Catholics.

By Gabrielle Bremer – Through the Lens Photography Venice has definitely been one of my favorite cities so far. From the water to the masks everything was great. It’s a place with no cars or huge crowds this time of year. It was nice to be able to lounge around on the boats and see […]
