We're more than halfway through our Spanish sojourn, and we have mixed feelings about Spain. Barcelona? Gaudi is awesome, with la Sagrada Familia leading the "top sights" stakes. The Museo Picasso was pretty good too. The rest? Meh. We could take it or leave it. People were generally unfriendly or uncaring, with a few notable exceptions: our hotel staff, the señora who ran a coin laundrette and the staff at two bars we ventured into.

Where do I start? We've been in France for ten days now, and this is the first chance I've had to blog properly. I think I'll stick to dot points:

The day has finally arrived - we're heading off on our Big Travel Adventure tonight. It seemed such a long way away when I booked our flight to Paris back in the middle of last year, but here we are. Somehow it's the first day of June already and Melbourne has turned on a grey, rainy day for us that we're definitely not sorry to be leaving.
Quite honestly, I'm happy to be running away from our real life for a few weeks. There's been far too much stress and sadness in the past two months, so this trip will be a welcome escape.
I'm taking my trusty iPad with me, and if my blogging apps play nice, will post updates on our adventures. If not, you'll just have to go check out my Instagram feed if you want to see what we're up to (my user name is @kerryn_w). Even if you don't have an Instagram account, you can view my feed over here.
First stop on the itinerary is Kuala Lumpur - assuming that the volcanic ash cloud over Indonesia and northern Australia doesn't cause our flight to be cancelled - so my next check-in will be from there, wifi permitting.
Tomorrow's KL weather forecast is for temperatures between 25º and 33º. Hard to handle, I know, but I'll do my best - with a cocktail in hand, of course.
