Just as summer was crazy, this fall has kept me busy. I made the last minute decision to stay in Malaga and start with my residency process. This means that at the moment I am legal to stay in Spain, but job wise I’m still illegal to work. *insert thumbs down* So I have been busy with my private English classes. I have to admit that this has been a difficult change for me. Although I love my students and that I am in charge of planning my own classes, it has been chaotic making a normal schedule. It’s also been difficult to balance my schedule and have it coincide with Cris’ schedule. I’ve also come to realize how much I do enjoy working in a classroom. Which means I have been looking at different certification programs here in Spain, such as the CELTA certification and more Spanish classes.
Don’t fret, though, I have had plenty of time for some fun!
I even found some time to hop on over to La Palma the capital of Mallorca, one of the Balearic islands (think of Ibiza).
During the summer is when the islands are hopping, everyone from the Biebs to Rhianna vacation there. However in the fall it’s a bit more quieter…but there was still plenty of party left for us. I would like to say we took the time to really learn the history about the different sights, but we didn’t. We took the time to see the Cathedral and the historic center, but we also made time to take a day trip out to Porto Cristo. Here we saw some sweet caves and got to take a little boat ride on the underground lake.
Walking around the historical center was beautiful. Of course the Cathedral is one of the center points.
But the streets were also beautiful too!
However, one downside to visiting La Palma is that it is expensive. Literally, the most money I have spent in Spain for anything. I have to admit…we did eat Burger King three times on the trip…
Then, just in an instant, it’s Christmas time! Up next is celebrating Nochebuena Spanish style! Hasta Luego!
