What a change!

Well i am here, in good ol´Santander, Spain. I have very mixed feelings as to whether or not i like it yet. I know the longer I am here, the better it will get. My host family is very nice, though on occasion the son can stereotype me as an american who obvisouly doesn´t know the difference between easy things like "ser and estar" - for you spanish speaking people it isnt too hard, and i do know the difference!! But overall it is good, just takes getting used to the spanish all the time, takes time to have to translate in my head, but slowly it is getting better day by day. and ive only been here since thursday.

The town is very pretty and i have been walking a ton!! The ocean is beautiful and the weather has been really nice, though a bit windy at times!! School starts tomorrow and I think they days will be better once i have something to do, lately all i have been doing is walking around with friends, though i have gotten to know the city pretty well and where things are located.

Miss everyone and look forward to coming home, but i know this experience is good and can only continue to get better!


  1. So good to read even more about your new life and all the experiences! You will have such a great time and you will learn so very much! Think about their son coming here...would he say everything correctly? Does he even speak English? He is probably just teasing you!
    We LOVE you,

  2. I am so excited for you hon! Keep holding on you are so capable of making it through the transition. I'm excited to hear about your adventures. This is definitely bookmarked! I love you and I'm praying for you! MUah

  4. Glad to hear things are going well so far, hope they continue to go well, and that this is an excellent experience for you. Please post pictures when you get a chance!!!
