hello, start reading here.

this one time in spain.

It has been an interesting week.
On Thursday, I was having a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day.  After my students had refused to behave or learn much of anything, my only wish was to be seen by a doctor and take some magical pill to cure my ridiculous cold/sinus awfulness.
Plan foiled.

As I'm headed through downtown Atlanta, BANG.  Two overly-friendly Argentinians swoop in front of my car and there goes my bumper.  My car once again looks as if it's encountered a Great White Shark.

And since Argentinians speak Spanish and I heard "Oh Dios mio" multiple times, I realized that I've never shared my muy bonita trip to Spain with the blogosphere.

Picture this: A "Study" Abroad trip to the picturesque Northern/vacation/ocean town of Santander, Spain.   Living with a Spanish family.  Doing a lot less studying and much more endless exploring.  I mean, wearing your bathing suit to class so you can walk to the beach after is not necessarily a difficult way of life. 

It was an unreal two months. Spain, I love you.

Discovering this beach was the best day ever.

Unimaginable beauty, right here, friends.

Back in the day when my locks were short.

This view is from a small island outside the city where I spent my 21st birthday.

It is the perfect combination of beach, beauty and history.  Have I convinced you to book a flight yet?

A few things:

1) So sorry to hear about the overly-friendly Argentinians. Being in those incidences are theee worst.
2) Love the new layout!
3) Your pictures are just gorgeous. I'm convinced. :)
