Hi everyone, happy Wednesday and welcome to my travel blog!
For those of you who don't know me my name is Corinne Dabran and I am a (soon to be) ESL Teacher in Madrid, España through CIEE. I am a recent graduate from the University of Cincinnati (Go Bearcats!) and I hold a degree in Marketing, Spanish, and a Business Spanish Certificate. Right before the start of my last semester of college, I finally decided what I wanted to do with my life and that is education, primarily focused on the Spanish language and second language acquisition (SLA).
My flight is in 28 days (but who's counting, right?) and I could NOT be more excited to start this journey. Last summer I participated in a study abroad with UC and lived in Madrid for 6 weeks and knew the second I came back to the states that I had to go back, it felt like I had left my home behind me. Once I found out about the opportunity to teach English abroad, I knew it was a sign that I was meant to go back and begin my career path in education.
I invite you all to follow me on this experience for the next ten months as I (once again) explore Spanish culture, food, customs, cities, and everything and anything that Spain, Europe, and wherever else I make it has to offer. At some point in time there may be videos posted to my youtube account as I really want to vlog and document my travels, but I will keep my blog updated with any videos I may add!
Stay tuned for some ~always exciting~ pre-departure posts, including tips and tricks on handling a Visa appointment, packing, and traveling internationally.
Qué pases un día muy maravilloso! xx
