Leaving Spain Early for the Summer

I left Madrid, Spain, one month early. I didn’t experience any issues with renewing for the coming school year at the same school. My school gave me the green light to fly home early. I did run into issues with renewing my NIE (my Spanish green card) in Spain, so I went to home renew my visa. If I would have received my carta sooner, I could have renewed my NIE in Spain and saved money on a whole new visa.

I need to get new visa because the renewal process for NIE  did not work out. I might be spending more to get a new visa, but I don’t regret leaving early. Early June I received an email for a mandatory online evaluation. I had issues accessing the link because I was not longer in Spain. The link could only be accessed in Spain. I emailed the Ministry of Education and fixed my problem. I just want to say it is possible to leave Spain early to go home to work as long as your school is okay with you doing so. I am so grateful that my school was okay.  I have summer job and a place to live most of the summer. It’s nice to see that everything is coming together for me. In the fall, I will need to figure out how to renew an expired NIE. To be continued….


Summer 2015 Update

I’ve been working at a summer camp back in Texas. I’ve been working with horses and children. It’s been a very enjoyable summer. Plus, I am outside, close to the lake, and out in the country. It’s nice to have fresh air and the ability to see the stars at night. I do miss Madrid a lot. I can’t wait to return to Spain in the fall. I starting to brainstorm a possible trip in September. I can’t believe how fast the summer is moving. Next Saturday will be the 4th of July. I still need to renew my visa for the coming school year and get somethings together for August. I got a couple trips planned out for August. I can’t wait! =)

Summer 2015

I left Madrid one month early, so I could go to back to Texas to work at a summer camp. I am enjoying my experience so far at camp. Everyone is very positive and welcoming. I can tell this summer is going to be a changing and challenging summer. This is a good thing for me. I will be renewing my visa to work in Spain for the 2015/2016 school year.  After camp ends, I hope to go to LA and visit a friend for a few days. I will have three weeks of free time; before, I return to Madrid, Spain, to work another year at my current school. I am so excited how everything is coming together for me. I look forward to seeing how the summer turns out. I am happy to be back in Texas.
