Lily and I arrived here in Portugal exactly 21 days ago.
This is the longest either one of us has been away from Will.
We spent the last week and a half at the beach in the south of Portugal and even though it was wonderful, it was hard not having internet access because that way we weren’t able to chat with Will like we do here in Beja.
Traveling for me is wonderful and extremely hard all at once.
Wonderful because I’m getting to know different places or visiting family but hard because I start missing home.
This time around is even harder because Will is not here with us.
I miss my best friend, my lover, my husband.
Lily misses her pai.
I miss my friends, my home, my plants, my life back in Miami (minus the heat) and I know that Lily does too.
Soon enough we will be back home and then I will be missing my family here in Portugal and wishing we could be with them.
That’s the way it goes. And such is life isn’t it?
Here are the rest of the pictures from our good times spent in Monte Gordo. It was nice being at the beach, I felt closer to home.
