¡Hola a todos! 

Wow. So many things have happened since we last spoke and I cannot believe the situation that I have found myself in! I’ll probably give you all another little update post soon, but the main news is that my life has got even busier 😂 and….

I’M GOING ON AN EXCHANGE TO SPAIN 🇪🇸!!! Yay! (Ahh… now you see the connection to my opening, don’t you?!) You know, it’s crazy how quickly this all came about (in the space of about 3 weeks) but oh my gosh….. I absolutely cannot wait for the process to start & love the whole idea of going on an exchange!

I better explain myself a bit more now! So, basically, I am going on a language exchange which means that I am going to Spain for 2 weeks, to live with my exchange host family and talk Spanish 24/7 – eeek!! 😬 I’m also going to spend the weekdays going to my exchange parter’s school and following her timetable, doing her lessons, etc. We’ll also do lots of fun things too, and I can’t wait to try some traditional churros and paella!✨ Hopefully my Spanish will improve loads, and this truly is a dream come true, as I have always wanted to do an exchange since I started learning languages at school (I don’t know whether I’ve mentioned it before, but I love learning languages and one of my future goals is to speak another language fluently, or at least very well!) 💗 

And then, after all that, my exchange partner will come back to England with me, to spend about 2 weeks with me & my family, going to my school, etc! Let’s just say I’m super excited and can’t wait for it all to start! 

I’m also really fortunate as this was all organised through our schools 😄. Therefore it means that my school will be more ‘lenient’ with work catch up and homework, or at least hopefully they will be! If you can’t tell already, I’m really excited about this and oh my gosh I can’t wait for it to start 🎉. 

I’ve already been in contact with my exchange partner (who’s name will remain anonymous for now 😉) and so far we’ve sent each other a few emails, texted and even video chatted which was a nerve-racking experience but relieving (as I mostly understood what she was saying & could just about reply 😉 ), so at the moment I’m really excited about the whole thing. And luckily my exchange partner seems really nice – hopefully we’ll get along really well! 💚 But, when it comes to actually meeting her tomorrow, it could will be slightly different as I think I’ll be much more nervous, hehe! 

And again, hopefully it’ll allow me to be a bit more active here & document some of the things that we do as a little travel diary, almost. I think that it’ll be cool to give you an insight into the whole exchange experience & my thoughts on how the process is going for me! 

Have you ever been on exchange? What was it like? Do you want to go on an exchange in the future? Or do you simply enjoy learning languages? 💙 Let me know in the comments! 

That’s all for now – I’m off to enjoy the sun – but I’ll see you all very soon! (Today, I’m spending the day with my family before meeting my exchange partner tomorrow 🌸🇪🇸)

¡Hasta luego!

(P.S: this was meant to be posted on Thursday 23rd, so sorry it’s a little late, but the good news is I’m settling in well & love my exchange partner and her family – phew! 😅)

  2. Girlll you’re back!! I missed you loads! 😭 The blogosphere hasn’t been the same without you, not even gonna lie 😂 Also I nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award so check out my post when you get the chance, and heyyy!

    I do Spanish at school and recently we’ve been having this really cool little Spanish pen pal thing? So kids our age from Spain write us a letter in English and we send one back in Spanish! Yikes! I love Spanish – it’s such a beautiful language, and Spanish songs are the bestttt!
    Can you believe I’ve never had churros before?! Really craving one right now 😂 Good luck on your exchange, girl, and great to see you again!

    1. Hey girllllllll!!! Oh my gosh – it’s been SO long since we last talked & I missed you
      loads on here 💗 The blogosphere wasn’t the same without you either, but I’m so glad we’re both back! 😂 And thank you so much for the nomination- I’ll check it out later! ✨

      High five! 🖐 You do Spanish too? Cool! That sounds like a really fun idea, to send a letter in Spanish to someone from Spain 🇪🇸 & to recieve one in English – ooh! I’m a bit jealous, not gonna lie! It does sound a bit daunting at first though, but really great! 💚 And I 100% agree, I love the Spanish language soooo much – I really hope one day I’ll be fluent or just very good at it! I hope the same for you too! 😂 And Spanish songs…. so beautiful!

      To be honest, I hadn’t had churros until like 1 or 2 years ago, but girl you’re missing out!! 😂 I’ll try not to make you too jealous – I’ve only had them once out here so far, and I preffered the ones I had in England so…. oops….. 😂 But still they were great! (I’ve really failed at trying to make you not jealous, haven’t I?! Sorry 😐)

      Thank you so much, good luck with your Spanish pen pal too! I’m sure you’re great! Great to see you again too, it feels good to be speaking to you again ✨ – sorry I disappeared for a bit – life can be very busy sometimes! Autumn x

      1. Heyyy! I know right?! I explained why in my summer reading post… long story 😭 Samee I missed you loads too!
        Awh thank you, and no problem! 😊

        Yeah, Spanish is awesome haha, and so is the pen pal thing! Surprisingly those kids can speak reallyyy good English, so it’s kinda nerve racking to send something back in case it’s not totally accurate 😂 Same, recently I’ve read a book with a few Spanish phrases in it and I’m proud to say I actually understood them all!

        Girlll stahp you’re making me hungry 😂 Lucky you! And yes I KNOW I AM MISSING OUTT UGH 😂

        No problem, and thanks! Same girl same, it’s been way too long, and don’t worry about it – I totally get you! I hadn’t posted for months because life got wayyy too busy, plus the incident I mentioned before. Anyways, glad to see you again and can’t wait for more posts!

  3. Hey Autumn! ❤
    Aw, this looks so epic, I’m so jealous (in agood way aha). I guess I’ve always wanted to do some sort of exchange, it sounds really fun, informative and interesting! Especially meeting new people, discovering more about the culture and trying new foods 😋 (the best part 😂)
    Glad your enjoying it though, sounds great, I’ll look forward to reading these travel diaries!
