Before we go…

Tomorrow I’m leaving for Madrid, Spain! I’ll be there for three days before reaching Bilbao, the city I’ll become a student in for the month of July. I’ll only be away from home for a short time but its long enough to have me feeling nervous, a little bit scared, and yet incredibly excited for all that’s in store! I’m worrying about what it will be like without my parents and siblings accompanying me in a country I’m unfamiliar with…in a country where English isn’t the language! Our house is bilingual and I still speak English 100% of the time so that will probably be the biggest thing I’ll have to get over to make my stay worthwhile.  Most of all, I’m ready to get out of my comfort zone, learn, and have FUN in España as I keep thinking of random things I might need to pack. I’ll use this blog to post updates and probably get over homesickness and just leave behind some memories for myself more than anything. Now I should probably get back to going through my suit case one last time….
