…from both my Spain trip and my brief time unplugging!
My family and I squeezed in a ton, during our vacation! I’m still wowed at all we were able to do. We hiked mountains, explored cities, walked through vineyards, and ate countless pintxos.
We started our 11-day northern Spain trip in and around Bilbao. Then we headed west to the Picos de Europa, then southeast to the La Rioja wine region. We finished up in San Sebastian—a city that’s pretty much my idea of a perfect place. (Where the above photo was taken.)
Most importantly, I’m glad I had that time with four of my favorite people: my mom, stepdad, Mal and Peter.
I’m excited to share photos and highlights over the next several posts. And I’m looking forward to evolving this space!
Like I mentioned in my last post, I’d fallen into the blogger trap of feeling pressured to post more frequently. As a result, I hadn’t been spending enough time on the posts I most enjoyed writing: longer pieces about places I’ve visited, meals I’ve eaten, thoughts on stories I’ve read. I’m planning on sharing more of that kind of content with accompanying original photography—as I learn to use the DSLR I recently acquired! (So bear with me on that!)
I will, of course, still share photos and art projects that I’ve stumbled upon and enjoyed. But those will hopefully make up a smaller portion of my posts.

I’m happy to launch into this new evolution of NYC Expeditionist! Thanks for joining me on the journey. 🙂
