I am writing right now back from my hometown in Spain and it is a surreal feeling. In a way, it feels like I’ve lived a dream and I just woke up, but the memories, the photos, the experience at IAE and all the friendships that I made remind me everything was real.
This experience has been without any doubt the most challenging and wonderful I’ve ever lived. I still remember the day I accepted the position at IAE and thinking
“OMG, I guess this is really happening after all…”.
The beginning of it was chaotic as all beginnings are, plus all the uncertainty and feel that being in a different continent on your own might bring along. But once you start getting used to your way to work, the town, the cities, the people, the everyday routines, you start feeling yourself at home again, although that feeling is even more rewarding because you have proved yourself that you made it in a more challenging situation.
I can honestly say that thanks to this experience I’ve become my own person, found my inner strength and allowed myself to discover parts of me that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Pretty much like Frodo after coming back from Mordor but in a positive way of course!
I am really happy I took the chance of doing this and I highly recommend it to everyone. It really is a life-changing experience. If you are reading this and would like to know more about my experience in the USA, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be very happy to tell you my personal tips, own experience and other advice you might need 🙂
Farewell, my dear hobbits!
