A Travellerspoint blog

Here we go!

Hello everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! As you know, I have been awarded a Whitaker Fellowship to do research in Barcelona, Spain. I will be there for a full year, so I have created this blog to help myself document all of the adventures and for you all follow them without me spamming your inboxes with e-mails! Feel free to snoop around, add comments when necessary, and know that I miss everyone already (even though I haven't yet left)!!

Even though I haven't left yet, things are moving quickly so I wanted to get a jump start. First, the title of the blog for those who don't speak Castillian (Spanish): It means 'Wandering Thoughts'-- I liked the double entendre (theres the extent of my French- and the last you should see of it), but it didn't translate into Castillian as nicely as I'd hoped- too many syllables. But until I come up with something else, it will have to suffice.

So for the last few weeks, I have been at home preparing to leave, with the grand plan of arriving in Barcelona with 10 free days to look around and nail down a place to live. Of course Plan A never actually happens, and the place I was going to stay until I found a room fell through two days ago. So last night I found myself researching hostels to crash at for the first few nights before I find a real place. I am now scheduling appointments for the middle of next week to see rooms, so I will update on that as soon as I can!

So tomorrow it's off to Maine to visit with family before Monday, when I will fly out of Boston for Barcelona.

I'll try to keep these relatively short and readable, so that's where I'll leave you today. Again, thanks for coming, and see you again hopefully!
