twoo weeks at once
Oh my, I have gotten so behind at this lately! Well I guess I should start with last saturday and the excursion that we went on! We took a very long bus ride to Covadonga where the Virgin Mary helped the Spanish to conquer the Moors. There is a chapel that is built in the mountain above a waterfall and it is so beautiful. There is a cathedral there also and the seven springs fountain. Legend has it that if you drink from all seven fountains you will be married within the year. So we drank from them all to prove it wrong HAHA all the mormon girls were serious and we thought it was funny. Lets hope that doesn´t jinx me right... Anyways we left there and went to where we began our kyaking adventure. The river was so beautiful and peaceful. It was amazing to be traveling down a river in Spain. It was warm, until the end, and we had a nice 4 hour journey. We got caught in yet another rain storm at the end of the river but we made it home okay.
Classes have been going really well but having a day break to go on a weekend vacation was wonderful. This weekend we went to San Sebastián to lay on the beach and visit Olivia. It was so great to be able to see her! The people she is there with seem really fun too. I am so jealous that she has a beach for the whole time though, that is were I would be right now if I was living there. Our hostel was so cute. It was a little bed and breakfast on the top floor of an apartment building. We had a balcony and we were in the perfect location. We ate some tapas and explored the city on bikes one day. the bus ride was a long one but it was worth it and we got to see a lot of the country side and the coast...they call it the green coast for a reason.
Well I will try to get better at this I promise. There is a huge festival this weekend so I will for sure let you know everything about that! Love you all and write to me when you get the chance!
