Hola tod@s! Welcome to my blog, live from Madrid, España! A bit about me: I'm from a small town in New York (far from the glamour of New York City) and moved to Montréal, Québec for university, where I studied Linguistics, French Language and Literature, and Hispanic Studies. I am a HUGE langauge nerd and will give you any language fun fact* any time of day, whether you've asked for it or not.
*Language Fun Fact No.1: in British English, 'fun facts' are called 'interesting facts' because they're "not fun for anyone but you"
Aside from my nerdiness, I'm a very active person and love running, yoga and figure skating (real Canadien, eh?). I'm never without a book in hand and enjoy giving and receiving reccomendations or just having casual discussions over coffee. I also love to cook, which means I'm super excited for Spanish cuisine and integrating new recipes into my repetoire. And yes, I am here to tell you that being a vegetarian in Spain is possible, it's just not that fun.
So...the real question: why am in Spain? I moved to Madrid for six months during my exchange program and have been keen to move back ever since. I fell in love with the culture, rhythm of Spanish language and life and am happier than ever to be back. Follow my life here as I delve further into European cafés, bookstores, tortilla de patatas, tinto de verano, travel and living the vida loca (y relojada) aquí en Madrid!
In the words of Miguel de Cervantes, Vale.
