International Travel

Finally flourishing :)

So much has happened in the past week.  On Monday I moved in with a new family.  I’ve only been here a short time, but dang.  This family is so sweet, and they all have such a personality.  I cannot wait to keep on getting closer with them, as well as improving my Catalan.  The house is a little bit further away to my job, but it’s okay.  Walking is good for me!  My hours of work have shifted a bit, and I am no longer free on Friday’s which is unfortunate.  But hey, it’ll all be okay.

This past weekend I went to Tarragona with some friends and we adventured around the old Roman remains.  There were about 16 of us all in one small hostel, so we made the party.  We had lunch in the main square of the city, and all had delicious meals.  I ordered the salmon and cream cheese toastie, and the portion was a lot bigger than I expected!  It was so, so good.  We walked around the city and saw all the main touristy sights.  Later on that night, we went into an Irish Bar, which I originally thought was going to be a chill, quiet place.  However, this Irish Bar was like the club of Tarragona.  We stayed there for the majority of the night before heading back to the hostel.  I love getting together with these people and sharing memories.

This week I also re-applied to TGI Friday’s at Cedar Point.  I think one more summer might be ideal before going off to Ireland (If I apply, which I’m determined to do).  It’s crazy to think that my time here in Spain is going so fast!  There’s still SO much I want to see/do.

I’m looking into planning 4 more trips before my time is done here.  Hopefully a few weekend trips to the north of Spain (Bilbao and San Sebastian), to London, and then Madrid.  Hopefully if all goes as planned possibly Portugal for a week (Spring Break) before heading back to the United States.

I am just so thankful for this opportunity for the second chance here.  A fresh start is much needed.  I’ve already learned so much in this week.

  1. Hey Meredith! It is so nice to read about your trip! You sound so positive! I’m really happy that you’re having a good time and I admire your courage. It’s great that this family suits you much better. San Sebastian is my favorite city in Spain so far. Keep up! ~ Lisanne
