Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡
I was not looking forward to travel to Madrid alone because I was not mentally prepared for this trip. Not was my wallet prepared for a trip like this either.
I didn’t slept very well before the travel either, but not just because of the travel to Madrid, but also because of the travel I have I front of me- in my life 😴. I know it will be different exacting travelers, I just need to get use to the thoughts, be a bit mentally prepared 😊.
The trip to Madrid went well. I didn’t lose any trains or the appointment I had in Madrid. I did remember to bring all paper with me. And no accident happen either 😊.
My daughter wanted to travel with me to Madrid today, but this day was the only day she couldn’t leave her work because of some meetings she was responsible for. And it is just Wednesdays the office I had my errand at is open now during the corona- situation.
Two friends of my wanted to travel with me too. But I had already booked the tickets to Madrid, and slowly it also dropped into my mind that this trip actually became more symbolic for my changes in my life then I first had in mind. I actually needed to do this on my own and alone today.
My errand in Madrid was also actually about identity and travel. Probably both mentally travels as well as maybe and hopefully some physical travelling too.
I know I’m standing in the door opening for changes in my life, both because I’m going to start to live on my own, live alone and try to find the “just me” and not just “the mammi me” anymore, and I’m also slowly “moving” into this menopause, and that is a change (and challenge) in life on it’s own way 🙄.
I also know my work situation will change, probably sooner than I had in mind and I m not mentally prepared for that either. But it is what it is.
I don’t know what more kind of changes (or challenges- hopefully not to many of them anymore 🙏) I have in front of me, – but I know they are there. And changes and challenges are in their own way travellers, or adventure in life 😊.
5 years ago me and my daughter was visiting Madrid as a day trip, a kind of mam- daughter trip, was the plan. But we went in June instead of March.
We actually had planned to create “a day”out of our trip to Madrid. Visit places and shop a bit. Use a bit time. So we did travel early in the morning and had booked a late train back to Malaga. But it was to hot to do anything. It was 40 degrees, so imagine how hot is was in the sun, and Madrid is also in a way in the middle of country too. There no ocean or water around the city. So there was no wind, not a tiny little breeze 🌡. We only managed to visit different cafes for taking some cold and fresh drinks 😅. And of course it was not possible to change our ticket to an earlier train either 😊. It was not our best planned trip, but still very cozy to spent time together at different cafes 🍹.
Today the weather in Madrid was sunnyd and nice, fresh and around 12 degrees. But my plans for this trip was just to do my errand and make the best of my trip. Not explore the city, just get myself out a bit from my comfort zone. I even had packed my own lunch with me today 🥖🥤.
It has been a nice experience today. I was alone and now and then I also felt a bit alone during the day, but at the same time I didn’t feel lonesome,- if you understand the difference? I know it maybe will be not so scary to be on my own and handle different things in my life as I first thought 😊.
And maybe and probably my trip to Madrid don’t tell you or give any kind of symbolic in my life,- but it’s not so important 😊. For me this was important, and I think Im not the only one that have some different thoughts around this happenings in life when the kids are moving out 😊. And what I did in Madrid today? Just give me some hour and I will tell you 😊.
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡
See you soon 😊
I have been “on the road” 14 hours today. A travel I actually didn’t looked forward to do for different reasons, but it became a nice and also important travel for me, both mentally and physically 😊. I know I will manage more then I think and have in mind in my life and this new changes I’m very soon are going to meet. And changes are travelers in life too ,- but you just not always know the destination 😊.
