Meet Gloria, our first Sweet Thursday gal in 2015! She’s awesome because, well, she’s just the sweetest, silly, laid-back and adventurous girl around, but also we love that she is the first to be part of the Sweet Thursday series all the way from Europe.
1. Where are you from?
My name is Gloria and I ́m from Spain. I live in Benicassim, a small town next to the beach. Living here is nice and quiet and the weather is warm most of the year.
2. We know you’ve lived in the US too. What was that like?
I spent my junior year in Walnut Creek, a little town next to San Francisco. And I must admit it was one of the most enriching experiences of my life. I learned a lot about a culture and a lifestyle very different to mine and I had the chance to go to high school and meet very interesting people, many with whom I still maintain contact, which I love. It was such a unique experience, one which enabled me to grow and overcome obstacles, like English. I never thought it would be possible for me to learn the language the way I did.
3. Where is your next trip destination? You have lots of places to choose from around Europe, or do you want to go further away?
There are so many places that I’d love to travel t0. In fact, my dream is to visit as many places and get to know as many cultures as possible, because I really believe that’s the best way to grow as a person.
But I do have one special place in mind that I’d like to make my next destination: Argentina. I’ve dreamed of traveling there for years now, and I hope to be able to make that dream come true soon.
