Vida En España

This is my very first opportunity to emerge myself into a new country, language, and culture. My journal will contain nearly all of my experiences, so read frequently in order to stay updated (:

 Let the journey begin. 

The plane ticket is bought. The dates are set in stone. And the day for my departure is rapidly approaching. I leave for Santander, Spain on February 5, and frankly, I'm nervous already. I feel like the many years I've spent learning the language mean nothing. After emailing and skyping with my sweet, sweet family, I realize that the communication issue is going to be more difficult than I had imagined.

Regardless, I'm very excited to have this opportunity. My family is absolute amazing already, and they've welcomed me into their home as a member of the family. There are three children that I will be taking care of as an Au Pair: Antonio (6), Guillermo (3), and Angela (8 months). I have my hands full, but I'm convinced that this will be a great opportunity for me to get out and find myself as well as do the things that I love independently. <3
