Leavin' Soon

This blog was originally a place for me to put up photos that I had taken of various friends and family, but as I am leaving for Spain, I realized that I should write in my blog about my experiences so I don't have to write everyone individually telling them all the same thing. So I guess I would suggest randomly checking this blog and I will hopefully be updating it often and putting up some photos of Spain as well!

So I'm leaving tomorrow at 2:45 in the afternoon, I will have a non-stop flight to Frankfurt, Germany, where I will have an hour layover to go through customs and such. Then I will be on my way to Bilbao, which is close to Santander, the town I will be living in. The total of the flight is about 14 hours, which isn't too bad. The time difference in Spain is 9 hours, so it will definitely take some getting used to!!

Be praying that I will feel comfortable with my host family and be OK with making a fool of myself for the first few weeks while getting accustom to speaking Spanish 24/7.

  1. I just wanted to wish you the best, and also tell you that your photos on here are very pretty. Did you get a Cannon Digital Rebel XTi? because that is what I have now. I bought it about a year ago or so. And I LOVE IT!! Anyway, good luck and take many pretty pictures in Spain!
