One of the many, many benefits of living in Madrid: impromptu day-trips to places like Toledo. To give you a little mindless entertainment on this fine Friday, here are a few shots from yesterday’s visit. Have a marvelous weekend!

Last week, Spain celebrated El Día de la Hispanidad, AKA Spain Day, AKA my birthday! To pay tribute to the Spanish holiday (OK, maybe my birthday), my mom came from the US and we headed to Croatia. Our one-stop trip to Dubrovnik turned into a three-country tour of the Balkans. Yeah. So while I play catch up, I wanted to give you all a little preview of the sweet, mom-funded holiday. More to come soon!

Pretending to write, but instead distracted by the view. Can you blame me?
