A new beginning....

Among unbelieveable emotions I´ve landed in Barcelona yesterday afternoon! ;) When you want something your whole life, it really can be quite unbelieveable to actually be living it! I still can´t believe I´m here! Half the day I was walking around the city center hummung to myself... "I can´t believe I´m here, I can´t believe I´m here..." and the other half I started searching for my new room/apartment. I thought this would be my favorite part of the process, but to be honest I´m already bored. There are very few available rooms with my specifications, (big room, centric, nice location, cool flatmates... etc) but luckily I´ve managed to find one I like, plus I have 3-4 other appointments scheduled for today... I think by the end of the day I´ll choose my new home! ;) Wish me luck!

My first meal in Spain: a delicious Spinach + Goat Cheese + Apricot salad with an apricot-vanilla dressing in the cool area of Born (possibly my new home ;)

What an unbelievably fantastic experience you're embarking on. Barcelona was my first Spanish home and I still hold it close to my heart. I am sure you will transition nicely. Can't wait to follow you on this new adventure.

You're there!! Wow--you went there without an apartment? You really are an adventurer!

It reminds me of when I came to NYC at 22 with my three duffel bags, no friends and no job. What an exciting time you're about to have!! I can't wait to follow along as you settle in.

very,very exciting! barcelona was always one of my favorite destinations. wishing you the best of luck and hopefully you'll find your dream living space and settle in without a glitch!

Kristyn said...

So exciting, Gabby. Once you are settled, you need to take a day trip to Tarragona. It's about an hour away by train, and there is an amazing beach and Roman Ampitheatre. Plus, at Christmas the whole town is decorated in blue and white and it's so pretty. I miss living in Spain so bad!
