Je suis arrivée!

My journey here was smooth, I took an evening flight […]

Una Semana

It hasn’t even been una semana yet and a mi me encanta la ciudad de Sevilla y los Sevillanos. The culture of Sevilla, España is warm, welcoming, very energetic, yet also carefree all at the same time. I moved in with my Señora (my adoptive mom for the tres meses I am here) last Thursday […]

In Denial

In a completely different language that I am not comfortable speaking. Nervous? That’s not even the word to describe it. In my eyes […]

And I’m off

Typical 6am “let me grab a picture of you, your luggage, and passport” pic from my dad before I was off to the airport for an adventure of a lifetime! Knowing no Spanish other than “hola,” “gracias” and a couple numbers, I’m off to start from scratch like I am in kindergarten again … Dora […]
