Leaving Austin Texas for Madrid Spain



Austin, Texas, is the place I’ve called home for all of my life. I am leaving an amazing place, good friends, and my family. This Texan is leaving the Lone Star State and heading to the land of  bull fighting and siestas. I am excited about the chance to do this program and live in Europe. Plus, all the traveling I will get to do. I will miss everyone while I am out on my adventure of self discovery.

I am less than 3 months shy of moving to Spain for the North American Language and Cultural Program. I am trying to enjoy Austin, Texas, while I am still here with my friends. I have made a few different lists: places I want to visit, restaurants I want to eat at, and road trips I want to go on. I do realize that I can’t do all of this in 3 months, but if I could accomplish some of the items on this I would be happy. Anyone that wants to do something with me just message me and we can see about setting something up. =)
