So finally I am here in Scandinavia! I am so excited to start the internship at Magikon Forlag in Kolbotn (Norway).
Many people have asked me “why Norway?“, well let’s know the story…
I have always been interested in the north, their culture, their weather… since I am andalusian and all I have known is warm weather and wearing shoes inside (yes, here you MUST take them off before you enter to a house or they will think you are so rude!!!).
Eight years ago, my grandma decided to let people from other countries in Europe stay at her (super big, huge) house for one year so they could learn spanish. A lot of people have come to my grandma’s house, but I must say there was a norwegian girl which is one of the nicest girls I have ever met. Her parents and sister are awesome. So when I saw this oportunity I was so happy that I could stay in their house!

Also, another reason why I love Scandinavia is that my long-distance relationship partner is swedish! Yes, it sounds crazy, but we have been a couple for almost two years and we are very happy together even if we don’t see eachother so much. I have been in Sweden in Easter, before coming to Norway, and now I can say I am getting used to these languages!

All the scandinavian languages are pretty similar and I have been studying them a little bit, so I won’t only learn english but norwegian and swedish!
I have to say thanks to my parents and my family for letting me go in this nordic adventure. They have always been so nice to me and they have always helped me in following my art dreams so I’ll do my best not only for me but for them, to make them be proud of me! Even if they are more than 3000 kilometres away!
I have a feeling that this will be a super nice spring!
