Estoy sentado en mi habitación que está vacía ahora…en serio, donde se ha ido el tiempo? I cannot believe that I have less than 36 hours here in Madrid. Here in España. Here with the family that I have lived with over the past 13 months. The family that I have come to call my… Continue reading A Jumble of Thoughts.
City by the sea. I was in love. We spent a week up in the northern part of Spain and what a relaxing week it was. Madrid has been such a hot mess, Bilbao was a welcomed break with the sea-breeze and cooler temperatures. Apart from going to the beach almost everyday, we went sailing… Continue reading Bilbao.
When I left for Spain a year ago, this was what I left with: a big bag that I checked, a carry-on and my college backpack. I could have checked 2 bags, but my cheapie, college grad self was not going to pay for an extra bag! Surprisingly it was enough. Sure I bought some… Continue reading A Suitcase and A Carry-on.
July 14, 2014. That Monday, a year ago, I landed in Spain. It’s been a whole year. I’ve lived in another country for a whole year. I haven’t been on American soil in an entire year. I can’t believe it. I was reminded of my anniversary because we celebrated the birthday of one of our… Continue reading Un Año Entero.
My sister was here back in June and the two of us got to travel around. Yay for vacation time! Both of the cities were beautiful and I definitely want to go back and see them again! Let’s start with Barcelona. We were there for only 3 days, but it was fun nonetheless. It was… Continue reading Barcelona and Roma.
Right now as I am writing this my SBFF (Spain best friend forever) is boarding her plane back to California. It is so surreal. The past week we’ve been together and just hanging out; which is nothing out of the ordinary, but the next few weeks without seeing her on the daily will be different.… Continue reading All the Feels.
Next week my baby sis is coming to Spain! The countdown has begun! This time next week she will be here. I cannot believe it! It’s almost been a year since I’ve seen this precious soul. Not only will she be here with me, we’re going to see one of our favie bands…Maroon 5, traveling… Continue reading Excitement.
Travel. Travel. Travel. I have got the travel bug! Lucky enough for me I went to Lisbon for the 3-day weekend here in Madrid. Although it was a quick trip, I enjoyed every bit of it. We walked around and took in the sights of the city. Soaked up the sun’s rays at the beach,… Continue reading Lisboa!
Remember when I complained about the cold temps here and could not wait until it started warming up and was summer time? I mildly regret that statement. Last week the temps started rising, real quick. We were in the 80s when the week before was in the 60s…maybe we got 70. So that quick rise… Continue reading Melting.
I have been thinking about this topic A LOT these past few weeks. As my time in Spain is winding down I’m beginning to assess what life is going to be like when I move back to the States. I am looking forward to moving back and being home, but I know that things will… Continue reading Reverse Culture Shock.
