A blog on Sinterklaasday
Sat, 5 Dec 2009 21:44
In the Netherlands Sinterklaas is celebrated the 5th of December
We write each others many poems to remember
And thus my blog today will be written in rhyme
Although I cannot promise a beautiful sounding chime
The weather and the Guggenheim Museum
Sun, 15 Nov 2009 23:08
The two most interesting things that happened during the past two weeks are the weather, and the Guggenheim Museum, so I suppose those will be the things that this blog will be about! Both were completely against all expectations, were highly surprising and most of the time in a pretty good way too!

For one week we went back to summer. I walked around in a t-shirt without a coat, I woke up all sweaty in the morning. A very strange experience at the end of October in a place where you would expect real autumn to have commenced... But here is what happened during my week of summer!
Spain is asleep and enthousiastic chi...

And here I am again! This time with stories about Columbus day, beautiful walks, the swimming pool, stickers, colouring booklets and airplanes! The life of an aupair in a nutshell!
Freedom, happiness and cookies!

Apologies, apologies. I know. It's been almost two weeks since my previous blog. But, don't worry to much, today you can read one of my blogs once again! My story about Bilbao, Subway, "Alguna Patata" and baking cookies!
Skatepark and Artea

And I guess it's time for a new blog, as it has been a very busy week once again! Slowly I discover life around here, and more and more things start to happen. Artea, practicing Spanish, going to the skatepark with the kids and of course my weekly visit to the IKEA.
Social life

Since my birthday I’ve dived into social life just a bit more - and I guess you just have to when you’re 18, right! The IKEA was already planned, but I added in a trip to the movies and a visit to a medieval market. This is my story!

As I was asked to write a blog today, I guess I will do so. The past week was great, and today was even more amazing! I had my first two Spanish lessons, made my first friend and I got a candybeam this morning! I’m being spoiled...

After a week I feel... like I’m sort of part of Getxo. Since the 9th of the 9th of ’09 I officially am an inhabitant of Getxo. I have a Spanish simcard for my phone, my Spanish lessons are sorted and the kids are pretty much used to me now.
The "real" thing
Tue, 8 Sep 2009 17:24
The first few "real" days as aupair in Getxo have passed. Now I get to see what life will really be like during the coming year. At least, considering what my days will look like. I can only hope that temperatures will change, as according to the thermometer it is 37 degrees here right now… Luckily I've been told that this temperature is not normal for this area, and that it will decrease soon. I desperately hope so!

I've spent over 24 hours in Getxo, with Borja, Eunate, Clarita and Borjita. The past 24 hours were special, a lot to get used to, nice, fun and even a bit frightening.
