How in 24 hours so much can change

Jamie Cullum's song: What a difference a day makes, has influenced me so much I want to write a post.

One of the lines from his song is: 24 little hours! That said, in less than 24 little hours I will be in Rimini with Roberto, and Carrie. I have a travel companion: Carrie!!! Best friend flying with me?? YES, and I feel great about it! Then, when we land in Rimini I will see my love (ML) and the three of us are going to stay the night in Rimini and go to Italia Miniatura, which is basically the same as the model village in London with mini Italian monuments instead of England ones. Looking forward to it as it was my suggestion, ML has been, so he can endure it with me... I will have my SLR, so very much looking forward to it!

We're also going camping with ML's friends! I will be in Italy until early September, it will be simply brilliant. Hope to keep you posted whilst I am there... if not more 24 little hours will pass, and I will write again upon arriving home.

Currently listening to Next Year, Baby by Jamie Cullum! It's getting me in the holiday mood :).

On that note, arrivederci!

Valencia

Buenos d'ias! Well, I don't really know how to follow up from the previous post, I was so convinced and adamant I wouldn't go to Spain. Here I am, sat on my bed with the windows open and the sun shining into my room. It really is lovely here.

I have been in Valencia for 3 and a half weeks now, I can't believe it's almost been a month. So much has happened. I have met some great people, we go out and ride bikes, sunbathe, wine and dine, take part in botell'on. Botell'on is basically a night where students all meet up and have a drink and a chat. Great environment, but I think I prefer being inside, keeping warm, as at night it can get windy!

When I first got here, I was in a hotel for just short of a week, I then found somewhere to live. Never realised that it wouldn't be the place I'd stay for the whole 6 months in Spain. I found a place that was cheaper, more modern and just perfect, suits me down to the ground here. It's a new complex with swimming pools. A bit of luxury, living with people older than me, who are amazingly kind!
It was Conxa's birthday, the lady I live with,2 days ago. She's kindly offered me some of her birthday cake...I know exactly what I'm going to do after this blog update :).

Work is going good, the people are lovely and I am remembering Spanish,gradually.

I have to go write some of my Spanish essay for University. The deadline is very close!! The 12th of April. I have never left work so late, so I want to do it so my stomach doesn't get in knots.

Hope that things continue to go how they are going. Is it just me that thinks when everything's going so well something has to trip you up at some point to bring you back down to earth, instead of cloud 9!?

Anyway, on that note, I am going to eat some cake, make a cup of tea and crack on with this essay!!! I will update this blog tomorrow, easter Sunday and explain how far into the essay I am.


Have a good day, sure I will with this essay.
