A few of my friends at El Tigre. This place is great! Basically if you just order one drink (You can see in the corner how big it is) the waiter just keeps bringing you food until you say stop. It’s great! My favorites were the coquettes and jamon. I’ve been wanting to come all semester and finally with only 2 weeks left we made it there! I’ll try to go one more time before school ends. The rest of the night included dancing and basking in the night life that is Madrid.
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer
I’m totally mad about the fact that I can walk down the street and have no idea what what anyone is saying. I love it and hate it. Sometimes its noise, sometimes it’s fascinating. Whatever it is, my ears are ringing. You learn a language only when your immersed You have to want it and need it. You shouldn’t be doing it to fulfill a requirement or raise your GPA. A language will help you make friends, meet a lover and learn about yourself. There is nothing more self-fulfilling than going into a Pasteleria and ordering the most beautiful treats ever in another language
I finally made a video of my August European adventures! My favorite is of course Paris, but every city has their hidden gem. Their “something” that makes them shine.
Travel far enough, you meet yourself.
I found this business card a couple of months ago in a market on Calle de Cervantes. First I love the simplicity of the look, but then I started to notice the different play on words. MAD in LOVE was the first one I could think of. Love has been constantly surrounding me. I´m writing a five page philosophy essay. Also, I´m in Europe for crying out loud! But don´t be afraid of realizing the importance of your independence. Walk around a little bit. Take in some sights and learn to be alone.
I want to document the importance of documenting. Confusing I know, but basically it’s important to write down as many notes as possible. For me, I take a different angle on this and keep as many paper clippings and whatnots. I tape in as many as possible and doodle. This is my way of remembering the beautiful journeys I’ve been on. I know I’m only here for about 5 months but these are life changing hours. Whether they are good or bad, living in another country will teach you new things about yourself and the world more efficiently than some might think. Knowing that I’m so close to beautiful and historic monuments is in itself unreal.
