I was talking to Ally about our travels and decided to share a few fun facts with you all. For those of you that do not know, Alyssa a.k.a “Ally” is my 20 year-old college junior that I have been exploring Spain with. People often refer to her as my mini me.
Ally’s top travel locations thus far:
Montego Bay, Jamaica
My favorite travel locations thus far:

And the list goes on… 🙂
One of the highlights of our trip to Spain was definitely the Flamenco show. Ally said she also enjoyed just wandering around the cities taking in the people and the surroundings.
What I did differently on this trip. Stayed away from a rigid schedule. I used to be like an army general when traveling with my kids, trying to make sure they took in every site there was to take in. This made them grumpy and awful to travel with. When I realized
1. there is no way to take it all in if you are traveling for a week, and
2. My kids are head strong and our travel experiences would just get worse if I tried to hold on to this approach,
life became so much better.
If you ever travel to Spain Ally would recommend you bring your own food! 🙂 It was damn near impossible to get her to try things she was not familiar with. I finally gave up and took her to Five Guys!
Of course I created a video so that I could share some of our trip to Valencia with you. We had so much fun roaming around and spending quality time with our family in Valencia. Hope you enjoy!
What has been your most memorable travel destination so far? Where is your traveling spirit leading you to next time? If you have visited Spain, what did you think about the food? Let me know.
