Fall 2015 Update

I’ve been in Madrid, Spain, for a little under a month. This week I have my green card appointment. Once I finish the green card paperwork, I can relax and really start focusing on living and enjoying Europe. I will get my new green card in a month.  I can’t believe how fast the days are moving. It’s already fall here and now it’s time to start thinking about winter break travel plans. I am hoping to spend winter break in Germany and Italy. I think this would be a very nice trip.

Other than planning and dreaming of traveling, I am finally moved into my new flat. This past weekend I bought hangers and tape to make my room more of a home. I finally put up pictures and hung up clothing in my closet. I hope to get some new clothes for the fall. My goal is to buy a nice winter jacket. Coming from Texas, I’ve never needed a heavy coat. I want a nice winter jacket, so I will be warm in Madrid and traveling around Germany and Italy. I want to print out more pictures of family and friends to put up on my walls.

I spent this past weekend wondering around Madrid with a friend from camp. It was very enjoyable showing someone from Texas my home in Spain. The park was my favourite part of this weekend. The leaves are beginning to change. I love autumn very much. I love how the weather gets cooler, buying pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, wearing scarfs and cute fall clothing, celebrating Halloween, and changing colours of the leaves. I love being able to spend the autumn in Madrid. I am dreaming of a trip to Paris next month. I want to see the City of Lights during autumn.

Other than getting back into the routine of working, I am trying to focus on some other things in my life. I am trying to start reviewing for the GRE. I plan to join a gym in the coming. I am hopefully that I can start working out again. The doctor gave me the clearance to start using the bike at the gym. I miss working out a lot. I want to start focusing on getting myself back to a healthy state of being in life. I am looking forward to enjoying the next month.

Dreaming of the City of Lights

Next month, I am hoping to visit Paris for a 4 day weekend. I am want to experience a lot of what this city has to offer such as Notre Dame, The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, Latin Quarter of Paris, Catacombs, Montparnasse Cemetery, and Versailles.  I’ve been dreaming of Paris for years and  I can’t believe that I am this close to seeing the city. I think Paris will be beautiful during the fall.
