En Route to Madrid

I'm currently en route to Madrid--Literally as we speak I'm on the plane. I've never been on an airplane that had WiFi. I had no idea what I was missing! Internet + flight = bliss!

I can't believe that I'm actually going to Madrid to visit Jessica! I don't think it will sink in until I land. I've never been to Europe. I admit that I'm a bit's so foreign...I don't even know what to expect. My nerves get the best of me when I think about meeting up with Jessica at the airport (she's flying in from Ireland the same day). I know I can call her...but right now I just think of my lack of knowledge and the fact that I don't know ANY Spanish (besides..Me llama Jill..which is extremely unhelpful) Those three years in high school Spanish class did absolutely nothing for me...

Once I see Jessica's face these worries will fade. Europe with my best friend...this really is the experience of a life time. I land in Madrid at 9AM on Monday and on Friday we fly to Paris until the following Monday. Jessica booked a all girl's hostel for Paris. ahhh PARIS! I have wanted to go there for years...I can't believe it's finally time for me to go!

My parents are say the least. The movie "Taken" is to blame. My mom bought me a black winter hat and scarf and insisted that when I am without Jessica I tuck all my blonde hair into the hat so that I don't stick out as much. Which, actually, is a far better idea than her first-to wear a black wig. hahaha!

I'm going to blog everyday so I can preserve every memory of this trip. It's going to be amazing.

Hope you have a wonderful time and a safe flight! Can't wait to read more about this trip. Just a warning, once you go to Europe, you fall in love with it and will always want to go back.

2 years of high school spanish and I know is: "Que tomas tu en el desayuno?" handy, if you miss your flight home and need to get a job as a waitress.
