You can learn a lot about a someone by traveling with them. Are they good with a map? How do they order off a menu written in a foreign language? What do they think about neolithic cave paintings? Are they fun sit next to on a 6 hour bus ride to France?*
Two weeks ago Nick arrived in Santander, and we had the joy of traveling together throughout France and Northern Spain, and even managed to squeeze in a weekend in Madrid. The low point of the trip was probably Nick leaving to go back to the US to start his new job. And the high points? Pretty much everything else.
*Answers: yes; by pointing randomly; couldn’t really say because the tour was in Spanish but the cave was awesome; yes, absolutely.
