¡Hola Madrid!

The last time I was in Spain was many many years ago before my final year in secondary school. I spent one month living with families in Madrid and in the Basque country to improve my Spanish. I cannot believe that I had never returned ever since. I visited Barcelona a couple of years ago but the people there didn't want to hear my Spanish (they would answer in English instead). The only times I have used my español was on trips to Latin America.

I'm really glad that I finally found the opportunity to come back here. I do not remember much of the city as I spent most of the time in the apartment of the host family that I lived with. I am unable to say, whether much has changed. For now I am happy to be here!

  4. I have never been to Spain itself, just the islands, but I guess that both Barcelona and Madrid are way more interesting! Also I made the same language experience with my Italian in Venice xD
    Have fun!
