Hola and bienvenidos! In case you don't know me already, I'm Lindsay, a twenty-something from Elk Grove, California. After graduating with degree in Business and Marketing from Chico State last December, I decided to satisfy my wanderlust and move abroad.
For the next year, I will be living in Madrid, Spain working as an Auxiliar de Conversacion (aka an English teaching assistant). This will be my first time living outside of Northern California, let alone leaving the continent…. and to say I am excited is an understatement! This next year will be filled with traveling Spain and Europe, butchering the Spanish language, taking full advantage of the siesta, tapas and wine, teaching English, and everything else Spain has to offer!
A few of my favorite things include bike rides, playing frisbee, good conversation, Mexican food, pretty much all food in general, books so good that you can't put them down, fashion, music festivals, motivational quotes, beer, and spending time with the people who matter most to me! I'm constantly learning and growing and changing, and I love to try new things. I've been developing a passion for writing, whether for an audience or for my eyes only. I want to see the world... I think there is so much to learn from other people and cultures.
Through this blog, I hope to keep in touch with my family and friends, offer insight to future auxiliares, and document my adventures. Enjoy!
