Excitement and eagerness are the best words to describe how I feel as I journey to La Rioja, Spain. I am excited because I absolutely adore the Spanish language, and I’m looking forward to improving my knowledge of the language (i.e. vocabulary).
I am eager because I have never been to Europe or to a non-English speaking country. Furthermore, I have never travelled alone. I am anxiously looking forward to experiencing Spain’s culture—such as restaurants, historic sites and tourist attractions—as well as interacting with the natives, which will help to improve my oral communication with Spanish speakers.
