Culture shock? - no way!

¡Hola a todos!

I disappeared for a moment. I had so much to do this vacation that I neglected my little blog.

Well, guys...I left my cosy home in Poland and moved out. For five months I'll be studying in Oviedo - a lovely city in northern Spain.

I have to confess that at first I wanted to go to the south of Spain cause I am a "beachy" girl that loves heat and the sea. And the north? I didn't know what to expect. I had this stereotype of  a beautiful, green, rainy and cold place in my head. But I couldn't have chosen better! The city is beyond amazing. It's located in a valley, bounded by the moutains. The weather by far is great. We have september and the temperatures are still very high.

On our spare time we take the bus to Gijón or Salinas (just 20 minutes from our place) and go to the beach. The view at the ocean is breathtaking!

We arrived two weeks ago, right at the beggining of the festival San Mateo. Day by day we are learing something new about the spanish culture. Believe me,.. it's like throwing yourself in at the deep end! But do we have a culture shock? Never ever! We enjoy every second of this experience. People are really open, kind and helpful. Here, life has it's own rythm. If you are stressed and depressed Spain would be a great therepy!

There's so much to write about, but I won't do it now. Every little thing needs it's own post so...

Besos desde Oviedo y hasta luego :*
