My mother as well as I were going to go to Portugal when COVID became a thingâ€¦ We had to cancel our trip as well as a year later, both of us thought both of us could go. What a joke that is! International travel won’t be happening for a long time; Also, Portugal is not certainly safe as well as open for visitors just yet, one thing I am going to miss is the art as well as culture of that trip! I enjoyed the look of the little buildings as well as the brightly colored museums. I am trying to find an equal in the states as well as you just can’t. I suppose I am going to take my mother to CA though. It will be a fun time for us just being together. One thing people suppose about with CA is legal weed. While it would be fun to go into a cannabis dispensary, it is not certainly a mother as well as kid type of event. What I will do instead is base us in Santa Barbara. That is a high end location with attractive streets as well as tons to do! My mother cares about museums as well as cool buildings. There are white houses with red brick roofs in the area. It kind of reminds myself and others of what I saw in Portugal. That would be fun to see. There are tons of gardens, wineries as well as tours going around the location too. I suppose my mother will satisfy her history cravign in the area. It also will be fun to shop, eat as well as just hang out together. I found a hotel that offers spa services. The more than one of us method to get facials as well as soak in the steam room 1 day.
