Quick Update...

Hey everyone, sorry about the blog slacking on my end recently. I have spent the last two weekends in Toledo...the last one was unintentional. Last Thursday two of my friends and I had planned to spend the weekend in Dublin. We got to the Madrid airport to find out that our flight was cancelled because of bad weather in Dublin (a few inches of snow apparently...). So we went back to Toledo for a lowkey weekend without all our other friends (who had flights Friday morning which weren't cancelled). Jusy my luck of course. But Mel and I have already booked our flight and hostel in Dublin for the last weekend in I WILL get to see the country I've been waiting my whole life to see...just a little later than I had planned. Saturday turned out to be fun, since we were in Toledo we were able to go to Radical with a couple of our friends that live in homestays. Radical is a club that's only open every other Saturday...basically its a huge warehouse FILLED with lights and people. It was a typical Spanish club, with lots of smoking and drinking until daylight. Rachel, Mel, and I only stayed until about 4:30 though. The next morning we got to hear all about the Ireland trip...bittersweet.

This weekend my friends and I decided to go to Valencia on a whim...which is okay because its cheap to buy bus/train tickets if you're going anywhere within Spain. We're really excited about the trip after reading about all there is to do there...including some amazing museums, the beach, and (Mom, you'll like this) the Holy Grail. The Cathedral of Valencia claims to house the actual chalice used by Jesus at the last supper. I'll try to get a picture.

So when I get back I'll be sure to tell you all about it and post pictures (an area I've also been slacking). One more thing...please feel free to comment on the posts. Right now it feels like I'm talking to myself...and I'm not one for diaries...

  1. Hi Katie! You're right...I can't wait to hear about your trip to Valencia and the Cathedral! The Holy Grail...I wish I were there with you! It's still bitterly cold in Wisconsin, and although the snow is almost gone, we're gonna get more tomorrow! Miss you. Love, Mom
