In a little over a month, I, as a sophomore in college, will begin one of the greatest adventures of my life - I will be studying in Madrid, Spain. Leaving on January 8th and returning on May 11th. As a way to keep in contact with people back home, I made a blog to share the stories of my adventures.
I will be living with a host mom, Gloria. Gloria is a 55 year old, widowed, retired bank worker, vegan. She lives in a duplex apartment with 3 bedrooms - I will have a "house-mate" - Maya. Maya is from Japan and is studying in Spain for the entire year. I have contacted Maya and I believe we will get along great!
I can not express the gratitude for the opportunity to study abroad - thank you Mom and Dad :) I will miss everyone, but spending four months in Europe will be worth it!
