So, this is the first entry in my first blog… What am I thinking? I’m not altogether sure I have anything interesting to say, but we shall find out. You see, I am just a few weeks away from departing for what I originally called a mid-life crisis. My daughter has called it a mid-life opportunity… I like her’s better! :-) I am 48 years old. I have a daughter in college. I just quit my job, sold my house and my car, and in just three weeks, I will be getting on an airplane bound for Madrid, Spain with one suitcase, one backpack, and nothing else! Yes. I am moving to Espania – for no other reason than the fact that I can. I have visited Spain many times now and I feel quite drawn to the place and to the people. So, the unofficial plan is to move to Spain for one year. Just between you and me, the UNofficial plan is not to come home until I am fully bilingual, and until I’ve seen all the countries I’ve not yet visited in Europe, or until I run out of money… whichever happens first! I’ll keep you posted along my journey. I leave on March 6th, 2015. Blogging is new to me so – feel free to post suggestions or questions. I’ve been asked to blog during my Grand Adventure and I do hope you will enjoy it!
