The 92 Olympics followed by a Kilimanjaro

December 20 – Barcelona Day Three This morning, Jeff and I wanted to get some laundry done. I preferred having a it done by a service so we wouldn’t have to sit around waiting for it, but the hotel’s prices were ridiculous and we couldn’t find another place near by. With that, we ended up […]

December 15 – Haven’t You Always Wanted A Monkey? Today we departed Seville, but without first grabbing a chocolate croissant for breakfast.
