My First International Trip In More Than Two Years

June NL 6I had just returned from my first international trip in more than two years, and I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoyed traveling. In Madrid, I spoke at a writer's conference, and then it was on to London. My daughter-in-law Ginna also attended the conference, and my son came along for fun. 

This was also the first flight and trip for my nine-year-old granddaughter, and it was wonderful to share the experience and see everything through her eyes–from the magic of flight to encountering different cultures, languages, customs, and food. From siestas to tapas to dinner at 10 pm in Madrid, to the Tube (subway) travel and watching Mamma Mia at a Covent Garden theater in London — it was all great fun and a real privilege. Of course, I found inspiration around every corner, so I took copious notes for future books. 

Here are a few photos I thought you might enjoy, from the gardens of Spain to a group of writers in Madrid (I'm the shortie in the middle–even though I was standing on my toes).

Then there was the early morning in Burrough Market in London — and chocolates, of course! When I returned home, my tomato plants were taller than I was, and my new lemon tree had its first lemons. While I love to travel, it's always good to come home to my nest near the beach. If you're taking a holiday this summer, I wish you a wonderful time as well. We're all long overdue 🙂June NL 5
