Bye, Bye, Mr. Spanish Guy

After a wonderful month and some odd days, he’s gone.

I’m sad.

I know we’ll see each other again, but it doesn’t make it any easier.

If you’ve ever been in a long distance relationship, then you get it. A little bit at least. Until you’ve been in a cross-cultural, bilingual, LDR…you don’t quite. That’s okay, though. I don’t fully get others’ situations either. I just mean, blahhh, I get jealous of others who live only two hours away from each other and can drive there for the weekend. I cannot drive to Spain, no many how many hours there are in a weekend.

But as I say to Mario (and to myself, so I will believe it), we’ll be together in the end. It’s only right.

  1. You’re right. No one understands it unless they’ve done it. Mine nearly always has a time limit on it – two months while he’s in Somalia. Three weeks while I’m visiting back in the US. But it still sucks. Sending big besos your way, and an early birthday wish!

  2. I love the pictures, especially the pouty “no more wine sales” photo. Seriously adorable. Sorry you’re bummed, Kaley. Hope you get to see each other soon.

  3. I stumbled across your blog a while ago when I was looking through auxiliary blogs (I’m hoping to go this next year after I graduate) and I have loved reading your entries! I studied in Bilbao last year and met my boyfriend and it has now been 4 1/2 months since we’ve seen each other (I’m heading back in 2 weeks finally!!) so I feel your pain girl. It sucks when we have to say goodbye but it will all work out in the end. For now, at least we have skype :)

    1. Are you me? Replace “Bilbao” with “Madrid” and you essentially have my situation (except my visit is in three weeks–not two).

        1. I am indeed. I would have applied for this year’s position but I found out about the program in late February/early March while I was still in Spain. I didn’t have enough time to get my documents in order before the deadline.

  4. It will definitely work out in the end! And I love the last picture of you and Mario…so cute!! Lots of besos!!
