Just hours before my departure for the first trip of 2017, I cant help but reflect on one of the best trips of 2016. In July of last year, my husband and I traveled across southern Spain for a summer road trip.
The images captured here are among some of my favorites from our day trip to Istán. This small village tucked in the hills took my breath away. Literally, due to the radical incline of the winding roads, and visually from the magnificent vistas and humble homes made of white stucco.
As our first dip into Spanish culture, we didn’t leave disappointed. The sounds, smells, and sights were a wonderful combination of a Spanish dream. The month ahead was sure to be something special with Istán as our inaugural exploration
Traveling is important to me, it keeps me grounded. That might sound ironic, being away from home keeping someone grounded, but as creatures of this Earth, home is everywhere. So explore your backyard or go across the world, even a little of this practice will shelter you from great sorrow.
