For the first time in a month and a half, I had a change of scenery! November is my travel month, so this is just the first of a few trips that I have planned (no spoilers!) I had never been to Barcelona before, and I only had about a day and a half so this was a fast paced adventure. Seriously, I netted about 75,000 steps while I was there and my calves are still quite sore. Anyways, the first thing that was amazing was the weather. It was seventy degrees the entirety of my stay and I got to wear shorts for the first time since leaving home. Score!
When I was six years old, I played tennis for the first time. It was a total accident, a trip to the park turned into a basic lesson from a family friend, and now today it is my favorite sport both to play and watch. Thus, a trip to Wimbledon was on the agenda while in London. Even waiting for the tour of the grounds to begin, it was incredible to see the draw boards, still intact from the last tournament in July. I made sure to find Venus Williams’ name and track her matches all the way to the finals. Also, I saw a gorgeous poster of all the 2017 winners. Special props to Claire Liu (second row second from the right) for winning the junior girls singles. Always great to see an American come out on top!
