In part two of Marisa’s Iberian vacation she visits one of Herrwego’s favorite cities.
We are excited to start a short new series featuring my sister’s trips to the Iberian peninsula. Her first destination, and one of the favorites, was Lisbon.
Once we were joined by Jon’s parents, our entourage was complete and we were ready to tackle Barcelona’s most famous and grand sights. We were also lucky to have our parents with us to experience the vibrant neighborhoods and delicious food of Barcelona.
Move over, thirty-somethings. The sixty-somethings have arrived (Alexis’ mom, MaryLou, guest blogger, and dad, Ed). Barcelona is a city best seen on foot, and Alexis and Jon (A&J), having been there 6 years ago, showed us why they fell in love with it.
We continued our adventure through Japan by getting some hotel rooms in the middle of Tokyo, ideally positioned for checking out all that this humungous city has to offer.
Yokosuka is best known throughout Japan for having a large American Naval Base. For us, Yokosuka was a place to visit our friends for a wonderful introduction to Japan, where we would be spending the next three weeks.
Melbourne was the first metropolis we’d visited in a while and it appeared to have a cool urban vibe to it. Street art and food are king in Melbourne and both can be found down the alleys and laneways which Melbourne is known for.
