Saying this trip is nothing like what I expected would be a gross understatement. I don’t know what I expected, exactly, but it certainly isn’t this. That being said–is that a bad thing? I don’t think so. Sometimes–might I even dare to say usually?–having a trip turn out differently than expected causes an equally unexpected kind of growth. And that kind of growth tends to be the best kind there is. So since I’m procrastinating on my homework (which yes, we do have and I procrastinate about as much as I do at home) I’ve decided to compile a list of what I’ve learned that I didn’t expect to. This certainly isn’t a complete list, but it’s something, and that has got to count.

Not a very creative title, I apologize, but I figured better something than nothing, and better late than nether. I started this blog with the intention of updating it every few days when I was on a trip, yet here I am sitting on a park bench in Segovia (just close enough to a café to use their wifi connection, shh) having been here a week, and I’ve yet to update it once!
