I flew back to Madrid today after a week of travel. I visited amazing places- Paris, Geneva, and Ireland! In between all the ooh-ing and ahh-ing in all those wonderful places, I found myself missing Madrid. It has become my home. The realization that my time in Madrid ends in three weeks almost brings me to tears. I have learned so much about myself in this city and I have met many amazing people. It will be so difficult to leave. But, closure on this chapter means the start of another. I am really looking forward to spending time with family this summer and getting back to Chicago in the fall. In the meantime, time to enjoy the last of Madrid!
