View Spain 2015 on WorldRun's travel map.

Here in Castellar, I have been more of a tourist than any other place before. How do I feel about this? Uneasy. How do I handle it? Easy, like any place else I start living the cluture.

Looking at it, I've done a lot of tourist things, every day things and cultural things. This is all part of traveling; being able to do some of each, and learn about the culture and about yourself along the way.
