I've been traveling for 15 days now. That sounds both long and short. I've only been homesick the day my parents left, when I was very tempted to follow them home, and this morning, when the people in my hostel were loudly talking about being in a new country and getting used to a bed that wasn't your own while I was sleeping.
Like I said, I haven't done much these past few days. I went to Faro beach, where I was the only one on the beautiful white sand, except for a father and son taking a stroll. And I went to Lagos, to take a boat trip amongst the caves and cliffs formed by the literally crystal-clear ocean. The sun wasn't out for that, like I had planned for it to be, but it was still breathtakingly beautiful (and I still got a light burn). And I met a lovely German couple from Berlin who were patient with my German. The train ride itself to Lagos was lovely- with alternating fields of orange trees full of the bright fruit and fields of yellow and purple wildflowers. Today, I hope to take a boat trip on the natural reserve that sits off most of the coast of Algarve. If the weather cooperates.
Tomorrow, I leave for Sevilla, my transit stop to Barcelona. Which officially marks my return trip to Vienna!
