Auckland —> Madrid

So I’m not actually moving until the end of September, but I recently received confirmation about which school I will be working at and the area I will be living in.IMG_1951I will be teaching at a bilingual school called CEIP Valvanera. The children will be aged 3-12, I am so excited because it is all getting so real. The area the school is in is called San Sebastian de Los Reyes, and is a about a 20-30 minute train ride from the centre of Madrid. I have been looking at flats on a website called Idealista and they are so cheap, I will be able to get a nice one for about 300 euros a month! What a bargain!

As well as receiving this news, in the last few weeks I finished my university exams, so I am just waiting to receive my results before I splash all over social media that I will be graduating. I’ve been getting a bit ahead of myself and have even looked at gyms in San Sebastian de Los Reyes, and have found two amazing looking ones that have Les Mills classes! Perfect!

I’ve been a bit MIA on here because to be honest, I feel like I haven’t done anything worthy of posting about, and I don’t want to make out like I am this well travelled person, because I have only done one trip by myself, and I can’t stand when people come back from travelling for the first time and suddenly think they are so much better than everyone else. Sorry, rant over!

Life update on what I’m doing right now? In bed recovering from getting my wisdom teeth out! Not fun, but actually I have just been working at Barkers full time which is going okay, better than expected. My 21st is coming up in about 5 weeks so I’m busy preparing for it. Also, I’m currently trying to lose a bit of weight, due to the fact that I ate so terribly the last few months, so lets see how a month of no junk food or alcohol goes, 10 days in already and I’m going strong.

I think that’s all I have to say for now, here’s hoping I get some more ideas of what to write about! Here’s a photo of one of my best friends and I because I love putting photos in my posts ♡
