Pedraza, Spain

Taken July 2014

———————————————————-

Sometimes I forget that Pedraza is a real town (population: 400!) and not a movie set in Hollywood.  I stayed here for a week this summer while volunteering with Vaughantown.  Click here if you want to read about my amazing experience over on my travel blog.

Madrid, Spain
Taken July 2014

I’ve always been a firm believer that the best way to explore a new city is through a food tour!  When I was in Madrid a few months ago, I went on a fabulous food tour of the Huertas Neighborhood and Antón Martín Market.  Click here to read all about it on my blog!
