This is the first month of school here in Valencia, so I expect this post to be rather short…
Around the web:
I’ve never thought about it, but what nationality are you if you are born midflight?
Having recently moved both across a country and between countries I can empathize with a lot of this post. Lighten up and move on!
Another international teacher packing list. I don’t usually travel with ranch packets, but I do like to bring plenty of spices with me when I travel. I love to see what other international teachers pack!
There are direct flights (when you can get tickets) from Valencia to Panama City! I can’t wait to find some time to explore this country!
I love lifehacker! I totally agree with this list of skills we wish we were taught in school, especially the part about calculus vs splitting the dinner bill. haha
While I do try to dance in every country I visit, it never occurred to me to try to film myself doing it. This guy not only danced in 70 countries, but he filmed himself doing it; and it turned out great!
Bailando by Enrique Iglesias is a song I hear everywhere around Valencia. Love it.
Adrenalina by Wisin ft. Jennifer Lopez & Ricky Martin is a song that makes me want to move when I hear it!
This song has been around for a while, and I will always remember the first time I heard it while dancing with someone special in Mexico in 2010; Luis Enrique’s Yo No Se Mañana is one of my favorite salsa songs so I had to share it sooner or later.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: 5/5 stars. I finally gave in to the trend and read the book that many of my friends were talking about. This is classified as a young adult book which means it was a quick read for me. I didn’t want to put it down! I could have finished it in a day, but it was the first week of school so I read it in two instead. A modern day Romeo and Juliet with beautiful writing done in a very real way. People of all ages will be able to relate to this story, and if they are anything like me, they will shed a few tears too.
Dance Academy. There are three seasons and each episode is about 24 minutes. It is about young dancers in Sydney, Australia who are try to succeed in a prestigious ballet school. I’m a sucker for anything dance related so I might be biased, but I think the show was really well done.
