Big thanks to the talented confuzion for making my new button!
I found some old travel books for Spain and Andalucia last night, so have been looking at them to get some ideas about the trip. OH has some concerns about how warm it will be end of March/early April- not that we're expecting beach weather, but for it to be nice enough to sit outside the campervan for meals, and it looks like in southern Spain it will be fine then for that. I doubt we'll go too far north; if we get our own campervan some day, we'll probably come down on the ferry with it and do the north then.
Another bonus I found out from the guide books is that we'd be there for Semana Santa (Holy Week) which looks like quite an event.
If there's some issue with my paperwork or OH's ability to take off work, I think the plan will move to the summer, but right now, I'm really hoping this works out. The distraction from the mc and TTC has done wonders for my emotional well being!
The Onion article is hilarious! I didn't want a wedding dress, forget how I got talked into trying some on and the first dress was "it" - tried on a few more because I couldn't believe it was that easy, and went with #1, the first and only dress excursion. And it was metallic blush/ light pink
2016: I want to go somewhere new, but I also miss Germany. I grew up there and get called back about every 10 years or so, already having an itch to hop a plane and go. I'm thinking about eastern Germany, close enough to take a drive into Slovakia and/or Poland, as I've not been to either of those. Have been dreaming about Prague for ages. I love the old, powerful looking European cities.
Prague is gorgeous. That was my first trip in Europe (other than the UK!). It was also the first time I went on a holiday by myself. I absolutely loved it and would like to go back some day! I need to see more of Germany too; I've been to Munich, though it was during the World Cup 2006 so it was a crazy time! And I've been to Stuttgart too, but that was for a roller derby trip. For Eastern Europe, I went to Latvia once with my ex, and it was a really cool place too.
If the timing for this wedding trip works out, but for some reason Gibraltar/Spain doesn't, I think our back up plan would be a registry wedding in the UK and then off to northern Italy, which was going to be last summer's plan before the house and OH's father's illness put things on hold.
