Running with the Bulls

Hello fellow wanderers, thrill-seekers, and lovers of life! I want to share a story with you today, one that’s bursting with passion, adrenaline, and a taste of the extraordinary. It’s about my husband and me, and our incredible journey from the sun-drenched landscapes of Portugal to the heart-pounding excitement of running with the bulls in Spain.

After our travels through the captivating beauty of Portugal – its quaint cobblestone streets, vibrant squares, and tantalizing cuisine, we found ourselves longing for a taste of the wild, the raw, and the unfiltered. And so, with a shared sparkle in our eyes and a thrill in our hearts, we decided to test our mettle in Spain’s legendary bull run.

Running with the bulls isn’t just an event; it’s a baptism by fire, a trial of courage, and an immersion in a tradition that pulses with an intoxicating blend of fear and fascination. It’s about standing in a narrow, cobblestone street, your heart pounding in your chest, as you wait for the distant thunder of hooves to grow louder, closer, until it becomes a roar that you can feel in your very bones.

And then, they’re upon you. A rush of wind, a blur of color, and a surge of adrenaline so potent it could bring the dead back to life. You run, not just with your legs but with every fiber of your being, carrying the spirit of centuries-old tradition and an experience that is, in a word, transcendent.

And as we sprinted through the narrow alleyways of Pamplona, adrenaline coursing through our veins, we felt more alive than ever. It wasn’t just about the thrill of the chase; it was about sharing an experience that very few dare to undertake, and coming out the other side, exhilarated and forever changed.

We returned from our journey with more than just memories. We brought back a new appreciation for life and a determination to seize each day with both hands. Because life isn’t just about existing; it’s about living. It’s about diving headfirst into experiences that scare you, excite you, and make your heart pound with the sheer thrill of being alive.

Our run with the bulls taught us that life is a precious gift, and every day is an opportunity to unwrap it, to explore its depths, and to revel in its wonders. So, whatever your ‘bull run’ is – whether it’s taking the trip you’ve always dreamed of, chasing your passion, or simply saying ‘yes’ to a new adventure – I urge you to go for it. Live every day as if it’s your last, because in the grand adventure of life, every moment counts.

Today, my husband and I are not just travelers or adventurers; we’re life enthusiasts, with a thirst for experiences and a hunger for the extraordinary. And we’re here to tell you – seize the day, embrace the unknown, and live your life to the fullest. After all, there’s a whole world out there just waiting for you to dive in!
