Hello there! This past Saturday, Sally and I caught a train to Alicante, a beautiful city located along the Costa Blanca. Funny story about Alicante… Austin Karstetter, a friend from Quincy is actually studying in Alicante for the summer and just arrived there last week. We had been saying that we would definitely have to meet up while we were both still in Spain, so I messaged him and told him I would be heading his way for the day. He ended up having plans to go to Valencia for the whole day on Saturday, so we missed each other! I just can’t believe the odds that of all the days, we both chose the same one to visit each other’s city. Sorry I missed you Austin!!

Our plans for the day only included two things: 1. climb the hill to the castle that overlooks the city and ocean, and 2. relax on the beach. The following pictures are taken either from the top of the castle or along our walk up to the top.
