MAJOR upcoming adventure with my fabulous Madre coming up in just four fast weeks!!! The countdown has begun. I never, ever would have expected the excitement that is unfolding in terms of our plans for when she comes to visit.
So the tickets are booked. See below for our travel itinerary!!!!
There is some big time checking-off-of-bucket list must-sees on this venture.
Stop #1: Zermatt, Switzerland for Skiing!!!!!!!!!!!
I NEVER would have imagined I would actually make it here within my lifetime. So this alone fills me with wonder and thrill. We will be spending about 2.5 days time here together. One full day skiing what are supposed to be some of the best slopes in literally the entire world (with the awe-inspiring and totally awesome Matterhorn as our backdrop), and then the rest of our time exploring what is said to be the ultra-charming town of Zermatt. Fun fact: apparently this is a car-free town. How cool is that?
Stop #2: Barcelona, Spain!!!
A newbie for both my Mom and me as neither of us have been here. We will spend about two days in this happening city. Stay tuned for a more detailed report of plans as they unfold for how we will spend out time in this exciting spot.
And finally, our last stop. Stop #3: Lisbon, Portugal.
I have already been here (and LOVED it) but my Mom has not. I am SO psyched to show her around. And be still my dessert-loving heart. That incredible coconut bread with which I fell in love during my solo trip to Lisbon last year, I am looking forward to this with the kind of excitement that only someone who adores sweets as much as I do could ;-). Mom, get excited. This is a game-changer in terms of sweets.
