Madrid, you make a girl want to speak Spanish
Hola world! It has been 2 weeks since I wrote my (somewhat dramatic) pre-departure blog post, marking my 12th day in Madrid, Spain (I basically spent 2 days flying) and let me tell you this city is beyond anything a textbook and a couple travel guides could have prepared me for.
I've been meaning to get to this blog post but lets just say the first 12 days in a foreign country is a whirlwind of emotions and experiences (in a good way of course). In between getting used to living and breathing the Spanish culture every single day and accepting the fact that Spaniards speak ridiculously fast (and probably will not slow down for you), it is somewhat hard to believe that I have only been here for 12 days. Honestly, it seriously feels like it has been way longer than that, but hey living in the country of your dreams kinda does that to you!
