As you know, Mr. FFF and I recently spent 2 weeks in Spain and Portugal and it was AMAZING. It was our first time in Europe and definitely not our last. I actually want to move there haha! Of course, I don’t think that will ever happen.
I shared a LOT of photos on Instagram Stories as I was there, but I know not everyone follows me there. So, I wanted to share a bunch of photos here too!
We ate so much amazing food and I was so inspired by all of it! I plan to do a week or two series where I make (or remake) some of our favorites! Probably in a month or so! So stay tuned for that 🙂
Here’s more-than-a-few photos! 🙂
The beautiful gothic quarter in Barcelona / The gothic cathedral in Barcelona
So much character in the streets!

Whenever you got a drink, you got a free tapa!
This is an adorable city in Portugal called “Aveiro.” There are a bunch of canals in the city.
One of our fav meals, Cuttlefish “noodles” with pesto / more inside the Gothic Cathedral
We hiked up to the Monastary Montserrat in Barcelona

Adorable streets in Madrid
More Monastary pics / our new favorite breakfast: toasted bread with tomato and olive oil. We usually added cured ham too!
Had to go to Taylor’s Port Cellar in Porto, Portugal!

One of your fav meals – scrambled eggs with cod and leeks. Sounds odd, but SO tasty
The best gelato I ever had – toasted pistachio with mascarpone caramel nut
Cordoba had a lot of Roman-like architecture
A delicious toast with cured ham, brie cheese, arugula and balsamic reduction.
