So in exactly one month I will be on a plane heading to Madrid... The closer the day gets, the more anxious I'm becoming!  I love reading other people’s travel blogs and I hope people will enjoy mine as well. It seems to me that I’m on the older side of the student travelers! I’ve only been noticing 19 and 20-year-olds but hopefully there is more students my age. I don’t need another thing to worry about when I go to Spain. I don’t know what I’ll do if there’s only 18 and 19-year-olds there! I’m gonna freak oooout! Ahhhh! Ok ok, I’m being dramatic but the age difference does matter. Sort of. I don’t know. 
So here are some of the things I’m freaking out about:
  • There’s only 30 days until I leave
  • The age dilemma
  • I still haven’t bought my luggage
  • What if I don’t fit in?
  • What if I fail my classes?
  • Not being able to travel
  • Running out of money
  • Being homesick to the point of wanting to go home a.s.a.p.
  • Not learning anything
  • Not having that ‘life-changing’ experience everyone talks about
  • Being the only Hispanic person in the program
  • Being all alone thousands of miles away from my friends and family! (I think this one is pretty obvious and expected)
  • Not being comfortable ‘going out’ to bars and clubs and places like that because I’m in a committed relationship
  • Not being able to go to Spain after all
So those are some of my fears that I can think of right now. I’m pretty sure there’s more I don’t remember at the moment. We'll see how things go. Ahh one month!! Can't imagine what I'll be feeling when there's only one week left and then one day!


  1. Good luck! I hope you enjoy Salamanca as much as I am! Sounds like you're worked really hard to get here; it will definitely pay off :)

    1. Thank you so much! I have been working my butt off to go and I know it's going to be worth it :) I can't wait! Thanks and hope you keep enjoying your time abroad.
