Today's been a week since I took my stuff and left Bilbao behind. I'm still having a hard time accepting the fact that I'm back in Finland and not there anymore.
How lucky am I to have so many people in my life that makes it so hard to say goodbye?
I'm writing this with tears in my eyes and a smile on my lips.
These past two months has been beyond amazing and topped all expectations I ever had, it's been a dream come true to be honest. My time in Bilbao has been absolutely fantastic from the very begining to the absolute end. I can't imagine what I would have done if it weren't for you guys!
To be completely honest, I was scared as hell to go in the first place, why? I don't know. Can depend on many reasons actually. Either way, I am so happy I didn't let those reasons stand in my way for actually leaving, since it's been the best two months of my life. If you're reading this and you know you'll probably get an opportunity in the future to do internship abroad, don't hesitate, what the hell don't even think, just apply!
It's not just about the work itself, it's everything else that comes with it! Not only have I visited the country I've always wanted to visit for the first time, learnt a different language, made some great and absolutely amazing friends along the way, experienced and lived among a different lifestyle and culture for a longer time, stepped outside my comfortzone and challenged myself almost every single day. I've gotten to learn more about my strengths and weaknesses and overall found myself more as a person.
I'm forever grateful for everything and everyone in beautiful Bilbao, you've made my trip so much more memorable and precious and I love you all with the bottom of my heart♥
Since the worst thing for me is to say goodbye and leaving a place and people who became to mean so much to you, I won't say goodbye. I'll say "Till we meet again"
