Second stop on the 2020 solo European trip was Spain. I landed in Madrid, where I ended up extending my stay a couple of extra days. From Madrid, I took a day trip to Toledo, otherwise spent much of my time with my Couchsurfing host, Aurora, seeing the sights.

After leaving Madrid, I took a bus to Seville – AMAZING – for a few nights, then moved onto Tarifa, the southernmost tip of Spain, to take the ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar to Africa. The ferry ride from Tarifa to Tangier was one of the most exciting experiences for me. I love the water and I love the wind, so it was perfect!
