So far during my three months in Spain, I traveled to Madrid, Toledo, Sorvilan, Seville and Córdoba. I’m planning to still go to Morocco, London, Paris, and Barcelona. To say the least, I am trying to maximize my time in Europe.
I have arrived! I’ve been living in Granada for almost two months and I could not be happier. Since day one, my host family has been incredibly welcoming and kind. My mother, Adela is a wonderful cook and helps me a lot with my Spanish. My sisters, Natalia and Belen are around my age and it’s fun to hang out with them–we laugh a lot together!
“Where are you going this time?” “Didn’t you just get back from somewhere amazing?” “How do you afford all of these trips?” I get these questions all the time
My contrasting life stages colored my experiences and perceptions of Madrid–touring as a college grad back in 2006, and then later in 2012 as an expectant mother.
Imagine losing your gadgets, having your car not start, getting stopped by security at the airport, almost missing your connecting flight, and searching for almost two hours for the meeting spot. You can’t imagine it? Well neither could I, but it all happened on my way to Spain.
