This part of me even includes planning my leisure time, especially travel vacations.
But, when the universe has “other” plans for you, well...... sometimes you just have to let go of that control.
Recently, my much researched, analyzed, scheduled vacation was canceled the day before.
I vowed to go somewhere, and had a great deal of flexibility, but only one day to plan – or gain control of my week abroad.
I ran to the bookstore and scanned the travel section........a destination was decided.
This would be my second time to visit this country, so I needed to make the experience unique. 20 years ago, we rented a car in Lisbon and explored the southern part of the country. Stayed in Porto Covo, Algarve, crossing over to Spain, went to a bullfight in Seville, climbed the rock of Gibraltar, and then headed back to Lisbon exploring the interior route.
This time I decided to head North, planning the excursion as we went.
This was very hard for me – but made for some wonderful experiences and discoveries.
Next stop ………… Cascais.
