One year ago...

It's been almost a year since I was getting ready to set off on one of the most beautiful, amazing journeys of my life.
Hard to believe.
This blog was never really "wrapped up," so I felt a need to write one last entry... It's like, I fell in love with Spain, and now it's no longer in my life... I need some closure! Every time I think back on this wonderful experience, I get little aches in my body.
I think back to those first days in Madrid.. how nervous, anxious and excited I felt, how it all started, and how it would grow into something I could never imagine.
It was adventure, my wildest dreams, eating those damn sandwiches in Madrid, pintxos, croquetas, calimoxtos, sangria, Choch!, sidraaaaa, cafe con baileys, spanish class with Eli, clase de conversacion with Inaki, birthdays, teaching at Mundaiz, "por que no?", "no pasa nada", super amarra, roomies, la calle fuenterrabia, basque culture, "agurrrr", crazy/wild nights at Buga, Molly Malone's, Espala, tas tas, Bataplan, getting kicked out of Bataplan, new found sushi love, KEBABS, visiting the creperia, skinny dipping in the ocean, surf class, SURFING, love&friendship, wandering, strangers, meeting new people, new friends, being Charlie's Angels, eating and drinking, drinking and eating, awe and wonder, unreal, amazement, el peine del viento, the jesus statue, ocean, beach time, wine+beach=bangs, barefoot running, absinthe, talking to las brujas, TRAVEL seeing new places, ireland, france, portugal, morocco, traveling with my mom, shots! chupitos!, music, a se tu pego, vamos a la playa, sean paul, "wake up in the morning and I step outside, I take a deep breath, and I get real high", sexy& I know it, Happy Hostel, Maggies B&B, walking along the beach to school, walking in the rain, shopping, zara, H&M, blanco, bershka, nutella, cooking, USAC love, Spain, el dia de San Sebastian, Carnavales, San Sebastian, San Sebby <3
Words and pictures hardly sum it up without the experience and feeling. San Sebastian seems like such a dream to me, it was so magical. The people I met, and memories we made-- unforgettable. What a beautiful city, and what a wonderous time I had there. Thank you San Sebby for all you had to offer!
