I started to post this to the Spain Forum, but realized it was a more universal question for European travelers. We've discovered we have about 24 hours in our itinerary -- over a Sunday afternoon to Monday afternoon spread -- in Palencia, Spain where everything is working against us! The Cathedral and Museum we wanted to visit are closed for renovations. The other museums are closed on Sunday before we get there and closed Monday altogether. The restaurants we were eyeballing -- you guessed it -- closed Sunday and Monday!
Hey, we've all been there. It happens. And we'll figure out those 24 hours as well, so this post really is not a cry for help! (Although if you have any insider tips for Palencia...! 😉 )
But it did get me thinking -- what are some of your favorite "chillout" activities? When the Travel Gods are telling you, "Nope, you aren't cramming today with museums and historic sites and exciting cuisine," what do you turn to? When forced to slow down and take a breather, what are some of your favorite ways to just Chill Out?!
