However, this news is fun and exciting and a change of scenery: I am leaving the country and headed to Portugal!
That's right, I am packing my bags and my peanut butter for a week in Portugal. I have the honor of emceeing a conference for our Associates in North Africa and I have been working on my jokes and opening act for quite some time. I will be bringing my tap shoes and I may even throw in a sequin outfit or two.
I heart sequins.
I will be staying in Lisbon at a hotel near the coast where I plan to take long walks on the beach and brush up on my Portuguese. And since I do not know any Portuguese, I will probably just speak Spanish since that is what usually happens to me when I go to a foreign country.
However, that is where my planning has stopped because I am not actually sure what one does in Portugal. I mean, do they salsa dance? If so, color me available! Do they have historic monuments or museums full of invaluable art? If so, then book me a tour! Do they only serve fish and other creatures from the sea for dinner? If so, then I will be carrying my Super Crunch in my purse at all times.
Truly, Portugal is an entirely new country for me and I am not quite sure what to expect. However, do not worry, peeps. We will explore it together! I am taking my trusty camera and my ghetto laptop and paying 12 Euro an hour for internet just to ensure that you enjoy this ride along with me.
Shoot, maybe this Irish girl will even get a tan while I'm there!
So, do you know anything about Portugal? Have you been? Did you love it? Did you only eat fish?
