To begin with, what a lovely family I´ve been fortunate to be a part of here in Spain.
We decided to celebrate Christmas this year in Spain with my better half´s family, instead of travelling to Finland. We´ve been travelling a lot this year so the decision to stay as close to home seemed like the best option for both of us. Although I of course miss my family and friends a lot when living abroad, I had an awesome Christmas this year with a lot of funny and weird Spanish /Catalan traditions such as:
All in all, Christmas 2016 was a really nice experience for me, and thanks god I at least learned this year to speak Spanish so I understood that the loud discussions weren’t actually real family fights, since they definitely sounded like that.
Next up is New Years Eve, that I think we will be celebrating in Andorra by going to ski and enjoying good food with our friends.
