Here’s a quick introduction to me and this website. I’m a 21 year old Dutch girl who loves to travel and recently made the decision to move to Spain. And so far, I don’t have the intention to go anywhere else.
My first Spanish experience, besides my Spanish classes in high school, was in 2011, that summer I went to Malgrat de Mar (I should mention that I went with a group of friends and we didn’t really get to know the culture). Although, we did visit the lovely city of Barcelona. The year after that we made another trip to Salou. However, I really started to get to know this country when I went on a five month exchange to the beautiful San Sebastián in the Basque country during the fall of 2013, it was one of the best times of my life and there I completely fell in love (with Spain). In the meantime I have been to quite some places around the country; I made trips within el Pais Vasco and Cataluña, I also went to the autonomous communities Andalucía, Valencia, Castilla-La Mancha and the capital city Madrid and eventually.. I decided to stay.
On here I would like to share stories about my personal experiences, things that are considered completely normal by Spaniards, but that seem quite weird to me, also about ordinary, daily life in España. What to expect and what to do when you make the decision to move to this great country?
I hope you enjoy reading and that this website can be of any help!
