Short Update for 2023 - Madrid

  • Personal
  • Life Review

It's been quite a while since I've written anything, this being an understatement since it's been over a year.

What has happened since 2022?

In my last article, I mentioned beginning a life away from home and moving to Ciudad de Mexico. A lot has changed since then! I loved my stay there and maybe I'll write up an in-depth review of my stay there, but given I already have plans to stay there again for a month or more this year I may hold off until then.

But I figured I'd put up a short list of what I've been up to:

  • Lived in Ciudad de Mรฉxico (Mexico City ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ) for 3 months in the beginning of 2022.

  • Moved back to Dallas ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ afterwards for another 3 months or so.

  • Visited/stayed in Lima, Peru ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ช from June until August.

  • Went straight from Peru to Medellรญn, Colombia ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด from August until mid-September.

  • Moved back to the US after another 3-4 months outside of the country in mid-September until New Years.

  • Flew back to my hometown of Oakland, CA for the first time in 2-3 years or so for Christmas. I promptly flew back to Dallas after 4 days here to prepare to leave the US again.

  • Spent New Years on the plane from the US to Barcelona, Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ, where I stayed for 5 weeks.

  • Boarded a flight from Barcelona to Sevilla, Spain in mid February where I spent another 3 weeks.

  • During my stay in Sevilla, took the train to Granada, Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ where I spent my 30th birthday weekend ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚

  • Took a train from Sevilla to Madrid, Spain ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ where I am now as I write this in a small cafรฉ.

All-in-all this past year or two has been pretty crazy in terms of all that I've been up to when I look back on it. I'll have to make sure to document/write about some of the things that have happened in more detail, but I just wanted to get out a quick update in case people still think I'm in CDMX ๐Ÿ˜…

Thanks for reading!
