Wrap Up

“It’s so brown here.”

 

That was my first thought when I first set foot in Spain this past September. During the eight months to follow, I grew to love the country, its culture, and all that it has to offer.

 

I cannot believe that my gap year is coming to a close. I feel as if I am waking up from a dream.  It has been an incredible experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I was immersed in a new culture rich with history, learned to write/read/speak a language, and made life-long friendships with both young and old.

 

I learned how to cook delicious Spanish dishes, can give directions to tourists, and became a professional at packing a week’s worth of clothing in a backpack. :)  But more importantly, I became a more independent, cultured, global citizen. This is something that I will have for the rest of my life.  I have a new appreciation now for other cultures and want to go discover more of them in the future.

 

I’m now counting down the days until I come back to my second home!
