Ayyy, mi Madrid 💕
When I first moved here, I hated the city. It rubbed me in all the wrong ways. 🙅🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
😒 I hated how many people there were, I hated that I felt like “just another expat”, and I hated how cliquey it felt.
🙃 I hated how lonely I was in such a crowded space. I hated that there was a clear divide between expat & local circles of entrepreneurs. Odiaba moverme tanto por la ciudad, quedando con gente y tomando más cafés que necesitaba y después llegando a casa y me sentía más sola todavía. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ After almost 1.5 yrs here, I’ve found my groove, my people, my favorite spots and new surprises. I’ve found the charm that Madrid exudes, underneath all the hustle and noise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💚 Somedays, Madrid still gets under my skin and annoys me. Other days, it opens doors, connects me to people, and has brought me opportunities I’m not sure I would have had, if I’d have stayed at home 🌈
Ayyy, mi Madrid 💕 And you? What’s Madrid or your new home to you?
🏡 What do you love/hate about your home?
