Yesterday, on Friday the 13th, the day had come that it was time for me to start a new chapter in a new country! I love getting to know new places and what’s a better way to get to know a country than by living in it?

Sightseeing in Salamanca


1.Salamanca 041

Hello everyone!

I had a lovely day today! I woke up early and I went to the gym for a run. I ran 6,5 km in 40 minutes + burned 500 Kcal. I’m so proud of myself! 😉

After that, I cooked together with my roommates (‘compañeros de piso’) because one of them left today, and we wanted her to have an amazing last day with us. We made pasta with pesto, and also some toasts with ‘jamon y queso’ (=ham and cheese)

After she left I went sightseeing in Salamanca. I just took my camera and left to get to know some new places.

Salamanca is really amazing. The people live more on the street than in Belgium (which I really like!), they enjoy their afternoons with a nice glass of sangria at Plaza Mayor and they are really social. I also love the fact that the sky is always blue! It really makes me happy ;-).

I’ll attach some pictures I took today, so you can get to know Salamanca from my point of view. Enjoy 😉

1. I love the little spots where people sell handmade stuff on the street! I bought a nice bracelet overthere!

2. “La Policia”:  it seemed like those 2 guys were really good friends. They were talking and talking… It’s such a nice feeling when your collegues are also your friends!

3. I was walking through the little streets without having a destination, and I loved the view I got from this point!

4.+ 5. I like the fact that a lot of people go to Plaza Mayor to chill out, read a book, or watch the other people. It really has a nice atmosphere.

6. “The world is breaking down & we fell in love”: I thought it was a really cute quote… And there I was wondering again what would be the story of the people who wrote it! I can’t help being so curious about things like that.

Bucket list 2: Work abroad


As I saw that you guys liked my first ‘bucket list’-post, I’m going to post another one. Working abroad is one that I actually put on my to-do list every year, but until now it never happened. Now it is going to happen, because I’m moving this Friday to Salamanca, where I am going to do my internship untill the 24th of May! I’m so excited! Can’t wait to meet a lot of people and take pictures of a city that looks amazing (from what I saw on Google ;-))!

Salamanca

Did anyone ever went to Salamanca allready? Any recommendations to visit some places overthere?

On Friday I’ll post about my arrival, and a little later I’ll share some pictures of my new hometown!
