So, I’m writing this on my 21st day of (not so lovely, but very insightful) quarantine. I’d love to say that my days have been full of activities and sessions of mindfulness and all the crap that people in social media say they do… but they are doing that from their comfort of their own houses, from their beloved homes, and I’m writing this from a different country, from a different city and a different house (spoiler: all of them are not my own). Let’s start at the beginning. I arrived a month ago here in Madrid: the first stop of a big European trip that all my family helped me to get as a college graduation gift.
Get to know the culture through empathy
New food as a weapon to fight boredom
Be dress to impress (yourself)
The news and local tv programs as your Spanish Teacher.
Meet Lina: I’m a Venezuelan/Colombian industrial designer who, even as a baby, could not stay in the same place for longer than 5 minutes. I knew that there was a whole lot of world out there that I needed to see, so, little by little I’ve been doing my homework. I love everything art and culture related, so if you want to chat about it, I’m right here on IG!
