For those of you who don’t speak any Spanish (that means you mom and dad) I thought that it may be useful for me to explain the title of my blog. Upon arriving at the airport in Madrid, I scrambled to find my luggage and exchange money. I took an Uber to my hostel (which was an excellent decision considering that my two bags weighed more than half of my body weight). Once I arrived in the hostel, the first thing that someone said to me was… “¡Bienvenida pelirroja!” welcoming me to Madrid. In English that would technically mean “Welcome redhead!”. So I thought it was pretty funny! And needless to say, I felt very at home at the hostel for the week.
