It's all over...

I can't believe it's over! I arrived in Boston last night and thouroly enjoyed my nice hotel room! I had a great last few weeks... A little less mellow than I thought it would be, but a great time! I ended up hanging out with friends we had met and went to a 30th birthday party where I was the only one that spoke english. My cheeks hurt from smiling so much! They also took me to a club where all the locals go, and it was crazy! It was in an old bull fighting ring! My friend took me to a few new beaches and saw another palace and really cool castle a few hours out of Lisbon. My last night my friends and I went to our favorite bar in Lisbon, and then we went to Kareokee...Love! might be the most entertaining thing watching Portugese people sing all our songs with their thick accents!
What an amazing experience, it really hasn't hit me! The whole trip was such an opportunity and I am so glad I took advantage of it! Now my US whirlwind begins...can't say I have a set date when I will actually be in Seattle for more than a week! See you all soon!

Just a quick update!!

Only a few weeks left and I don't think I am ready to come home! I have had the best couple weeks! Jill left a few days ago which was a bummer :( We have made a few friends here so we have been hanging out with them and they have shown us a lot of fun local spots! A friend from college was in town randomly over the weekend, so we went to a soccer game and then our portugese friends took us to a free concert in a park! It was so fun! there was an amazing firework show afterwards and it was beautiful! I pretty much have just been getting myself organized and cleaning the house and of course doing last minute shopping! I'll spend the next couple weeks working on my tan and relaxing before I have to go back to real life! Everything is fantastic though and I can't wait to start planning my next adventure!!
