Of course, we always get excited to travel but it means something a little bit more to us these days.
It means getting out of West Africa.
Our every day regular life is spent in the third world without a lot of modern conveniences so the thought of visiting a place that has luxuries like McDonalds (which we never eat at when living in Canada but somehow seems a luxury now,) shopping malls, good food, etc. gets us really, really excited. We write a list of all of the little things we want to stock up on and things we need to shop for because it could be several months before we get out again.
Here are some photos via Instragram of those little things we enjoyed on our first few days in Spain.
Different beer (for me, a Newcastle - for Joe, Sierra Nevada IPA)
Salads and fresh vegetables & fruit
