Against my expectations – and maybe yours, too – I couldn’t publish another post last week. It has been a crazy week indeed! I finished my bachelor thesis just in time before it had to be printed and sent out. I’m really happy with the outcome and that it is finally over! 🙂
I couldn’t rest after that, however, because I had to pack everything for my move to Spain! It’s really complicated when you have to pack stuff for two people for a whole year and only have so much space in your car (how do people even do this when they go abroad by PLANE?!)! The whole move didn’t really dawn on me until shortly before we left, when I had to say goodbye to everyone. I had the chance to meet my best friend again ❤ Which was GREAT ❤ I miss you already!
We then also had a little “farewell party” (well, more of a “cake-and-coffee with the family”) on Sunday where we said goodbye to my sister, uncle and grannys and then on Monday we said goodbye to my dad and started our journey in the morning. We went all the way to the western boarder of Germany, into France (through some very idyllic, out-in-the-sticks parts, too) and then spent the night in a B&B to get some rest and be fresh for the rest of the journey the next day. Yesterday we passed into Spain and took the chance to have a little rest at a small city in the Basque country called Zarautz, where we had lunch and enjoyed the view of the Atlantic ocean ❤
We then arrived at our new home – Valladolid – in the afternoon, found a parking space right in front of our flat (yay!) and began unpacking. Today we got up late 😀 unpacked a little bit more and sorted out a few things with the university here…then we had a little walk around the city centre, and it’s really beautiful here, I already love it!!!
Now I have finally settled a bit, the flat isn’t a complete mess anymore – I even found space for my very own snail mail drawer! I love it! 🙂 I guess I am off to some letter writing now again after weeks – FINALLY!
I will be back soon with the remaining part of my incoming mail and some other post ideas I already have in mind! 🙂
I hope you’re all doing great!
