Well, it is officially here - the departure day. I just checked into my flights and thankfully have window seats! I am still not actually scared, more anxious about what lies ahead. It blows my mind that I would so easily choose to move from the country where everyone I know and love is, to a place where I know no one and probably don't know more than 100 words of the language! I guess I was craving an adventure and an adventure is what I will get!
As I lay in bed on the morning of my last day in New York, I realize I will really miss the city. Over the past few weeks, with my departure looming, I started to really realize what an amazing place I have been living in! While I loved the city, I definitely think I will enjoy San Sebastian. For some reason I act like I might be going to a third-world country and considered packing some Hamburger Helper and such, but think to myself -'amanda, they will have food there.' ha!
Anyways, this blog will let you keep up-to-date on my happenings in Europe for the next 10 months! Opportunities like this don't come up every day and I am excited that I am doing it. I am really happy that I can share this experience with you and can't wait to tell all that I encounter - new foods, people, languages and places! I am happy you are along for the journey!
