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.
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.
Shoot I wish I knew. I’ve been in Spain for quite some time now. I go back to the states the end of June/beginning of July. Where has the time gone? When my family was here visiting last week we talked about my plans after Spain: going back to school, finding a job, or traveling… Continue reading What’s Next?

Today, I still am unsure of when my return to the states will be, but that’s okay. I’m trying to live in every moment… Continue reading Tres Meses en España.

It’s fun and there are so many dances to learn! 3. Taxis after 2 am, when the metro is closed. Otherwise we would have real long walks home haha.… Continue reading Day 4 of Positivity.
I’ve experienced this before when visiting other countries. And frankly I forgot about it before I moved to Spain…the fact that people look the same and yet when they open their mouths to speak….it’s a different language. I’m a week and a half shy of my 2 month mark (holy moly, time is flying!!!) here… Continue reading My head hurts.
Wednesday I ventured out of our little barrio of Montecarmelo and headed for the big city. A short 10 minute walk from the house and I was at the metro station. I bought my ticket and looked for my train; it was arriving as soon as I got to the platform. Navigating the metro was… Continue reading Madrid y Asturias.
