Fun with Spanish travel acrostics

You know how a lack of sleep can make your brain do funny things? Well this is what happened when I sat down to write a blog post after an 11-hour flight from London to Hong Kong.

I wrote a couple of Spanish travel-themed acrostic poems. You know, like the ones you probably wrote back in primary school – the letters in a topic word begin a new word which relates back to the topic word?

That’s right; I am a crazy person when I haven’t had enough sleep. I wrote out “Barcelona”, “San Sebastian”, “Valencia” and “Ibiza” this is what my fatigued, sleep-deprived brain came up with…

So what do you think? Amazing travel poet or a crazed lunatic who could do with a good night’s sleep? Or maybe I’m both… next time it’ll be travel-related haiku poetry!
