Livin’ “Dat Expat Life”: Monthly Recap #1…

As of today, I have officially been living in España for a little over a month–it is truly crazy how the time has been flying!!…

So, this post essentially amounts to an “In Case You Missed It” regarding my first month of “Dat Expat Life”…

The Arrival/Rough Adjustment:

As I wrote previously, I had a less-than-smooth arrival to ZGZ capital…The first week and a half getting settled in and sorted was stressful, to say the least–but, things have gotten SIGNIFICANTLY better since then: I’ve made some friends, gotten myself orientated the city/know more-or-less which buses and tram routes to ride, and have been adjusting to being an adult foreign national–with a bank card, I.D. #, and everything!!…

Getting To Know My City:

I’ve spent these past few weeks becoming acquainted with my new, wonderful surroundings–I’ve even started a new post series focusing on the many marvelous sights in Zaragoza, as well as one where I highlight “The Tapa of the Week”!!…

That Trip Where I Almost Died:

Going on 3 weeks ago, I went with a group of Erasmus students on an excursion to Huesca Province…Our first stop, Loarre Castle, was quite lovely…Our second stop, Riglos, was where I had what was the WORST hiking experience of my life up until this point, what with struggling with dehydration/maintaining my footing and balance on a path where the ground was less-than-firm/even–but, at least I got some good photos out of it!!…

Enjoying the Fiestas:

Two Fridays ago, the whole town was caught up in “Las Fiestas del Pilar”, a week-and-a-half-long celebration of the Virgen del Pilar, which happens to coincide with the celebration of Colón (Columbus)’s “discovery” of the Americas…I’ll most def have a post with more deets in a few weeks, but until then, enjoy some pics!!…

Starting Work

I officially started my job as an auxiliar at the EOI #1 on the 6th of this month, and I am so grateful that I have been blessed with some very kind, helpful coworkers…Oh, yeah–and the students have been awesome, too!!

So, to all my fellow [n00b] expats out there–what’s happened in your life this month???…
