Holaaaaaa from the land of mosquitos and air-conditioning…Dénia!! We’ve been here since Sunday, the 16th, and beach-wise, it is so much better than Cádiz. It is a great little village with lots of restaurants and shopping. The village is surrounded by rocks and it makes for beautiful scenery.

It was very similar to our Atlantic coast beaches—there was lots and lots of wind. Did I say lots? The sand was not quite… Continue reading Week 2!!
Y’ALL, I am a whole week into this. I’ve been in Europe for a month and living with the Fernández family for a week now. A routine is starting to present itself and I truly know I am in the best situation that I could possibly be in. I cried when Daddy left. It was hard… Continue reading What I Know About Forrest Gump
