The past 5 days I have spent my time in Cádiz, Spain at La Playa de Valdelagrana. It has been a relaxing vacation full of sunshine, long walks on the beach, Nicholas Sparks novels, and reflection.
The beach has always been my favorite place to escape whatever worries are bothering me. While most students in my program are sad to leave Spain, I am excited to return home. There are just so many things that I miss. Don’t get me wrong, traveling and seeing the world has been such a privilege, but I would have enjoyed it more if I had my family or one of my fave gal pals with me. Even though I consider myself to be very independent and slightly more introverted than extroverted, I have realized that I miss the company of those who I have deep, meaningful relationships with… Their companionship means so much more to me now. Home means so much more to me now.
I have 28 days left. I will soak in as much as I can during that time, but I know that the moment I step into my house, see my puppy running toward me, and have my family greet me with hugs, I will be so overwhelmed with happiness.
