Goodbye Summer...Hello Spain!

I'm so upset that it's almost the end of summer. I hope it stays nice enough so we can still enjoy the beach, tourist free. This summer flew by! I feel like we were busy just about every weekend. I'm kind of looking forward to winding down in the fall, but our schedules are filling up quickly.

We're both taking classes this semester for our master's. We have 4 weddings in the next 4 months and we're going to Spain in November for a work conference. The conference is in Cadiz, which is right on the very end of Spain. It's supposed to be Europe's oldest city. We were looking at hotels last night and we're trying to stay in smaller hotels in the heart of the cities. We'll be in Jerez de la Frontera for a day. Our flight comes in there, so we'll stay a night and check out the local sherry vineyards and some flamenco. Then, we'll be in Cadiz for 4 days for the conference. On the last day of the conference, we're heading to Sevilla, which is supposed to be amazing. I'm so excited to taste the tapas and see the sites! We'll be in Sevilla for 3 days and then we're finishing up our tour de Spain in Madrid. We'll take the 2.5 hour train ride through the country side from Sevilla and spend a day/night in Madrid. Our flight is the very next day, so we'll take a whirlwind tour of Madrid.

The best part of it all is that work will be paying for the majority of my stay plus airfare. Yay second honeymoon! We'll be sure to take tons of pictures to post.
