Kiwi smoothie with melon

Kiwi smoothie with melon. A sweet fruit smoothie with the lovely nut flavor of the almond milk in it.
At the moment we are already back home for almost a week after our holiday in Spain and we loved it there. We spend 11 days in Spain and almost every the weather was good and we relaxed a lot. Sometimes we visited a place, we went to the beach a lot to swim with Leyla and relaxed in the beautiful house were we stayed. It still was very different when you are going on holiday with the dog than when you are going just with the two of us. You do notice that you can't do everything you want and decide to just don't do some things, because not everything is possible with a dog. And our dog is very attached to us so she can't be alone very easily in strange situations.
I did hope upfront that she could be alone in the bench for 2 hours or so, but we found out quite soon that that was not an option. The first day we went to the bedroom (downstairs) and we left Leyla in the bench (upstairs) to sleep. But she really panicked and honestly that is not very strange, she was in a different environment 'left alone'. So the first days she slept with us in the bedroom (in the bench), when it went better we let her sleep on the couch upstairs and that went quite good. But if she gets bored or finds it taking too long she sometimes chews on pillows or the couch and you don't want that in somebody else's house of course. So we decided to not leave her alone when we went away. So if we went somewhere she was with us or we had to go separate.
I wanted to go to a big market in a nearby village, but it would be super busy there. And Leyla can't really handle that, she just likes it so much and gets super excited and she is pulling very hard and wants to jump on everybody. And honestly that is not a good thing and it won't make anybody happy. So I decided to go to the market by myself. You constantly have to figure out what the best thing is to do.
We went to Parc Guell in Barcelona for example, where dogs are allowed. A nice walk, but also very busy for Leyla. We went early in the morning, on purpose so it wouldn't be that busy and warm yet and also decided to do something fun for here afterwards, which would be swimming. And that went perfect with a water bottle for Leyla we found our way through all the people, it was super busy, but she did a really good job. It was a big challenge for Jens, because he had to walk with her, but it went fine. And afterwards we cooled down in the sea a nice trip for the three of us. And that way we designed the entire holiday to make it the best for the three of us, that would give all of us the most fun. We for example wanted to have lunch at the beach, but Leyla was a bit annoying already and had had a lot of impulses already (and a lot of impulses and stress stay in a dogs body for 72 hours) we found it better not to do it. Otherwise she would be barking or jumping on the waiter out of her enthusiasm and that will make nobody happy haha.
So for that reason it is also nice to be home again, Leyla can be alone at home when we want to do something fun and she can more easily find her rest at home. But all by all I am still super happy that we took her with us to Spain because we had a wonderful time with the three of us. Tonight Jens and I will end the vacation in style by eating at a nearby tapas bar and Leyla can stay at home.
