When in Spain you… Taste new foods. Meet new people. Hear different languages. And discover different places.
Not knowing the language very well was fairly difficult, but I would have to say that I did learn quite a few things on my trip. I will definitely not forget the word for exit (salida), or how to correctly pronounce Toledo (toe-lay-dough, going to Ohio is going to be tough now…).
As far as learning new things, I discovered new words like sandía (watermelon), how to say sorry if you bump into someone (perdon), and how to ask how much something is (cuanto cuesta?). But I did not learn how to form better sentences…:(
