What is going on? So I am sitting in the Asturias airport waiting for my flight to London and I am bored. I had to take the 12 o clock bus from Oviedo and my flight doesn’t leave until 3:30. Gosh! Haha no it is ok, but I have just been sitting here people watching for way too long. I can’t believe I am already coming home. I had to say goodbye to everyone yesterday and this morning and it was actually really hard! I cried when lizzy had to leave… so sad. Then this morning my host mom cried a little when I had to go. I will never forget the amazing experiences I have had in this little town. I have learned so many things I will never forget. I guess I should tell you about the last couple of days. So Thursday night Spain played Russia in the eurocup and kicked their trash, so of course the crew of us went straight to the fountain and went swimming! This time there were probably 600 people in this little area around and in the fountain, cheering and screaming and drunk. It was fabulous! Then Friday we had our last day of school. Well it wasn’t really even a school day because we just played trivial pursuit and then had a graduation thing. It was awesome we got certificates and everything. Lizzy and I had the brilliant idea to make those graduation hats out of paper, people loved them! Haha and after the graduation we all went to a café that Rubio had rented out for us and got all this free food, coke and wine. I had 5 cokes… wow that would be like 15 euro if they weren’t free. Haha oh well! Anyway then yesterday I just packed, got flowers for my host family, and then went to dinner with the rest of us left in town. Of course after dinner we ended up at the astrurianu one last time…
So here I am, listening to Beatles music, enjoying life. I am sad to leave but excited to come home and start my next adventures. 68 days until I leave for Ecuador!
Ok so here I am, in the gatewick express. This has been a crazy day of traveling for sure. I have gone from bus to plane to light rail to bus to train. Wow… I am tired. I am going to get to the hotel and take a nice long bath…
I am sick of walking 6 floors to my house everyday.... I have buns of steel now for shizzle.
I am home in 6 days... crazy daisy! Also a shout out to Dani for turning 20 today!!!! Holla.
Hello! So I first just wanted to apologize for my lack of blogging, I have just been having so much fun that I don’t really have time to sit and blog, but I will try to post at least twice until I come home….
Well it is Saturday and I just got home from hanging out. Lizzy, Jonathan and I just went out to dinner and then the internet café. Nobody is really going out and about tonight because today we went riverratfting and the sun drained all of our energy! It is ok though because it was so much fun! So this morning we went to this cathedral that was awesome! It is on the top of this huge hill and it is gorgeous! I loved it, anyway then after we headed to the river. This place is awesome because we are so close to the beach and to mountains, it is like paradise! Anyway so we headed to the river and we were off. It was more of a river float instead of rafting because it was really mellow, but that is why it was nice. Four of us hooked our kyakes together and floated, chatted and tanned on the river. It was fabulous. Then at the end there was this bridge that we could jump off of which was pretty high. It was fun, I definitely was one of the first ones up there.
Anyway other than that this week has been pretty much the same. School, studying my little brains out, bars, dancing, ya know, the works. So great! We went up to Gijon to play that soccer game and got owned by the students up there. They are a different group though, a little more intense than my hippie classmates. We are all about peace and love and those Gijon people are pretty serious. Hahah that is really how I would describe the group I am with as a whole, just bunch of hippies. You should see what happens when we talk about politics…. Wow. Anyway we got owned but it is ok cause I got to see my guy friends! They are so funny. They all had the Spanish Mullet and the mustaches… so gross. But it was a fun afternoon.
Then the rest of the week was the same… I had a test Friday that I think I did well on, so to celebrate we all hit the beach for the afternoon. Oh how I love the rolling waves of Spain. Anyway tomorrow is going to be a busy day… church, then the flea market, then we are all going to a buffet decked out in our Spanish clothes to watch the Spanish vs. Italy eurocup game. Spain is going to take it all… you just wait and see! Haha Anyway I better be off to bed but I love you all!! I will be home in a week, how crazy. Ok goodnight!
I also just wanted to tell my family how much I love them! You guys are the best and remember how much you mean to me. I am having an amazing time and I would not be able to do this without you guys. Keep it real in the 801!
