Georgia formed part of the defunct USSR. Like many of the post-Soviet nominal republics, it went through a period of sharp economic decline in the 1990s. Georgia wasn’t one to wallow in post-Soviet syndrome, though. It created an environment for liberal investment which proved irresistible to Western financial institutions. Today, Georgia has much to be proud of and wants the world to know about it. And Spain wholeheartedly supports Georgia's pro-West aspirations.

On a sunny day in Madrid, I pick up a Lime electric scooter near the Tirso de Molina Metro stop in the vibrant La Latina neighborhood. The thrill of riding through the streets, jetting past pedestrians and cars alike, is exhilarating. In cities like Madrid where pollution is one of the worst in Europe (a 3% annual mortality rate), electric scooters should be welcomed whole-heartedly as a green solution.

In just a decade, the predictable two-party environment in Spain fractured into a wide breadth of parties and ideologies and may never revert to the what-had-once-been. This will certainly make for a more chaotic system, but a more interesting one as well.

Life with my husband was an exciting time. We traveled by car, many times across the states and into Canada. We worked, and enjoyed life. Then one day, unexpectedly, my husband of almost 36 years died – and I was lost.Thank goodness for my brother John who guided me back to the land of the living. I booked a tour of a country I wanted to see: Spain, a place where I did not speak the language. I loved exploring all of the country and when I left that first time, I knew I would return, and I did.
