We did a lot of traveling in 2019 and the beginning of 2020. Even for us.
Each trip had a good purpose (family reunion, 50th birthdays, study abroad), and we knew (la-di-da) while it was happening that it was a special period of time. We also knew that it’d be followed by a travel dry spell. We’re in that now. How’s that for lucky timing? (Is my ‘silver lining’ nonsense getting annoying?)
This trip, last September, was unusual in a few ways. Kate had been away from us, studying in Pamplona and A Coruña since early August and we just HAD to see her in her element, meet her host family, and get a quick visit in. With Patrick away at college and Emmett in a Catholic high school, a quick trip over the public school Jewish holiday break with Paul made a lot of sense.
It was a delightful long weekend exploring the Galician city of A Coruna and the beautiful neighboring city of Santiago di Compostella. Strange as it was to be in Europe without the other two boys, we did have a blast with flat Patrick and flat Emmett.
The rest of September, as told by my Instagram feed, was filled with end of summer and back to school and lots and lots of fall family sessions.
It sure was a great month.
Thanks for looking,
