Life in Spain is really relaxed. Eating and drinking is very important and things are just very very laid back. Meetings that are planned on some fixed hour are always flexible. People showing up half an hour or en entire hour late is more common than people arriving on time.
I like the lifestyle. The only weird thing is that sometimes I feel like I don’t belong here in Spain, and I’m living a weird version of the Spanish life. Everyone speaks a strange language, has different customs and sometimes my world just feels different. I am no longer a tourist but I’m definitely not a Spaniard. It leaves me with a strange feeling.
I look forward to visiting Holland again soon. Afterwards we’ll just have to see and I’ll try and find some work in Spain. It’s going to be an interesting adventure.
