FitBit Update #3

I am continuing on yesterday’s theme of wanting to make sure I stay in good health.  I have been blessed with good health for all of my life except for an occasional short detour along the way.  It is easy to take it for granted when it has always been there. My only problem right… Continue reading FitBit Update #3

European Vacation – Laredo to Hendaye

While eating breakfast in the bar this morning, we had 4 young men trying to pick us up.  The bartender was enjoying the exchange, even though he could only understand the guys.  Unfortunately, we could not understand what they were saying (although their actions made it obvious) and they could not understand what we were… Continue reading European Vacation – Laredo to Hendaye

European Vacation – Laredo – Day 4

We didn’t have anything other than the bull fight planned for today, so we took it easy in our room and read our books until noon.  We had picked out a restaurant nearby that we had not been to yet and went there for lunch. We had an adorable waiter, whose only knowledge of English… Continue reading European Vacation – Laredo – Day 4

European Vacation – Burgos to Laredo

We had a wonderful sleep last night and even slept in because it was so quiet and peaceful.  We then slowly started towards the beaches – but were feeling depressed because the sun was now refusing to show itself.  It won’t be much fun on the beach without the sun. We had decided that we… Continue reading European Vacation – Burgos to Laredo

European Vacation – Ciudad Ridrigo to Burgos

Either this is normally a very lively town – or it is a holiday here because this place was hopping all night long and we didn’t get much sleep.  I guess having a bar downstairs maybe didn’t help.  We had breakfast in the bar and then packed up to head out.  We didn’t have any… Continue reading European Vacation – Ciudad Ridrigo to Burgos
