My last & final semester in my public health program begins TODAY & I’m honestly beside myself. How did this break go by so quickly?! What have I even been doing? This time last year I was still high off my solo-Euro trip to Edinburgh & Paris…you know, doing my whole eat, laugh, eat journey, mask-less without a care in the world. How did 2020 manage to feel like it was 3 years long, but 2021 seems to be going by exponentially faster? Can the person taking earth on a joy ride please slow down? Why are we going so fast, fam? We’re approaching our first pandemic anniversary way too quickly.

We didn’t have enough time to book a tour to the national park, so we just stuck with touring the history museum & shopping. Such a shame though. I’m all about national parks. Until next time, Lanzarote!
