I’ve Come Full Circle…

I've come full circle, I can die now.  You've been to Paris before?  No. You know full circle, like full circle in my dreams. Coming to Spain, I didn't know anyone, I didn't even know my program mates except one. I was so excited to be going to Europe for the first time, that I … Continue reading I’ve Come Full Circle…

Ahora es oficialmente Agosto! Que emoción, venga vamos!  I can official count down the 21 days until I embark on my adventure in Spain.

“Y Lloran Cuando Tienen Que Marchar”…

It was finally time for our two day excursion to Southern Spain. We were heading to Granada, Spain in the Andalusia region. I was so excited to be seeing another part of Spain and being so close to the coast and Africa. Like holy crap balls. I was on limited sleep and woke up in … Continue reading “Y Lloran Cuando Tienen Que Marchar”…

I looked at my ticket and said London. Well actually Madrid, with a layover in London. He told me he was on … Continue reading Y Te Deseo Lo Mejor…

We were off to Segovia, Spain in the region of Castile y León, just north of Madrid. 9:30am was our call time to be at Plaza de España to make sure our bus left on time. Talía and I walked to … Continue reading I’m Going To Throw You There…

Guys, I Think I’m Lost…

Once I got off the Metro at Puente de Vallecas, (partly due to wanting to get McDonalds, although it was closed by midnight). I vigilantly walked home with loud sighs of exhaustion and sadness. I had just left 24 hours of rain/snow and tons of Nutella Crepes back in Paris. This was it. My last … Continue reading Guys, I Think I’m Lost…

No Te Preocupes, Siéntate…

Roommate gone. Spanish terrible. Lonely pea. Seven months later, I can really say that I'm glad things happened the way they did. Had my roommate never left, I don't think I would have ever put the idea of coming back to Madrid in my head, or at least not yet. I would have never gotten … Continue reading No Te Preocupes, Siéntate…
