Hello friends and family. I am a little late to the game on this whole blogging thing. I have decided to start one in order to remember my amazing experiences, and for others to follow me whenever they feel like it.
I arrived in Palma about two weeks ago now. What I have been up to since then:
Enjoying the best food I have ever had in my entire life
Meeting a BOATLOAD of new people – some from the states, some from Mexico or South America, others from Europe and Asia. I even met a nice bar owner from New Zealand
Drinking my weight in café con leche
And vino (lol jk dad…)
Exploring La Trapa on a very difficult but unforgettable hike with the Erasmus (European international students)
Walking 365 steps to Castillo Bellver–named for its beautiful views.
Enjoying the famous siesta
Experiencing night life in Palma–las discotecas (;
Of course: Tapas Tapas Tapas!
Visiting beaches that stretch for miles
Attempting, and failing miserably, to speak Spanish
Learning more than I could ever imagine
From this list it’s obvious that my life in Palma so far has been nothing but a dream. The weather so far has been pretty amazing too, with everyday around 63 degrees and almost every day filled with sun.
I plan on writing more frequently so I can actually explain these amazing places, rather than just stating what I’ve done. I have so much excitement for the next four months, and I fear that I may never want to leave this wonderful Island.
HA just kidding, but I haven’t come up with my own closing yet.
