Hola amigos! My world has switched from the Arizona dessert, iced coffees and journalism school to tapas, sangria and Spanish culture. I just arrived in Madrid, Spain to study abroad for the whole semester. I will be spending a few days here for orientation and then heading to Sevilla, in the south of Spain, until Christmas time!
People have been asking me if I’m nervous or worried about being homesick, but honestly I am neither! I am filled with so much excitement and happiness that I believe everything else will fall into place. The four months is going to fly by so I do not want to waste any minute.
I plan on sharing my experiences with the food and culture of Spain, along with all the places I travel in Europe, but I am not entirely sure how much access to Wifi I will have. I’d also like to post a video here and there so you can truly see the live action of the city. I’m so excited for all the posts to come!
P.S. Did I mention that Alexander will be in España as well? I’m so excited we will get to explore and travel Europe together. Hopefully we will both come back to the United States speaking fluent Spanish, dancing flamenco like the pros and trained to make the best tapas!
love food, love self, love life.
