The old continent

Today is the first day of my university´s Christmas holiday. According to my lesson plan classes don´t resume until January 6th.

Unlike other years, I won´t be celebrating this year´s Christmas with my family. Actually, we´ve never been more separated then this year: a little over 10.000km! Although this makes me feel a bit melancholic, I´ve to think abut the upside: within 48 hours I´ll be walking on the famous Plaza Mayor in Madrid and visiting the Torre the Belem in Lisbon.

It´s my first trip to Europe and I´m really looking forward to it. Unlike my other travels, I´ve been preparing for this trip for over a year. I still can´t believe that we´re actually going tomorrow.

To all my family and friends, I wish you all a happy Christmas and a great 2014. And please follow this blog for more updates the coming days!
