Hi ya!

How are you? I've been reading this forum for a week and became addicted. Now, since I've seen that most of you are very nice people I'd really like to share information and experiences with you all . But, firstly, I guess I should tell something about myself

I'm a 25 years old girl from Spain. I've been a vegetarian since I was 18. I'm pretty adventurous and I'm always keen on meeting people from different countries. Although when I started university I took engineerings I gave it up eventually because I really needed to study a degree that meant something to me, so one year ago I became a primary school teacher.

Travelling is my passion. I've travelled a lot around Europe and I also studied some subjects from my degree in Latvia. This time last year I was living in Scotland in order to learn English... As you can see I didn't succeed in it and I'm still rubbish at English grammar and spelling. I'm so sorry for that but I'm working on it. I hope you'll be able to understand me!

Currently I'm living in the Mediterranean Coast of Spain but willing to go abroad soon. It's high time I moved to other continent. Here in Spain life for a vegetarian is kind of tough and we are just a few. Fortunately, asiatic, mexican, italian, turkish and vegetarian restaurants make our life easier. At least fruits,legums and vegetables are delicious here!

I'd really like to make other veggie friends and I hope to meet some of you soon.

Thanks to everyone!

such modesty! your spelling and grammar are fantastic- especially considering that you learned in scotland- i bet you picked up a wonderful accent and some colourful slang!

where do you think you'll travel to next?

welcome to veggieboards- i'm glad you decided to join us.

Rubbish at English grammar and spelling? Chica, tu inglés es mucho mejor que mi español, y vas a mejorar rapidismo en las palabras que faltas. Solo conocÃ* dos vegetarianos cuando vivÃ*a un semestre en España durante universidad, y mudaron de Barcelona a Tarragona durante mi semestre.

I miss tortilla española. I've tried to make it many times, but it falls apart and isn't the same.

Welcome to VB, and I hope you stick around! Since we've already got you hooked, like you say, that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Welcome to VB!

Don't worry your English is great! In fact, your grammar and spelling are better than some of the native English speakers here!

Thank you very much guys!!! You all have been so kind!!

hoodedclawjen You're right it was tricky to learn English in Scotland. At that time I didn't speak so much English but I was able to understand it quite well.. When I arrived there I was really upset cause I couldn't understand a single word!! Anyway, I'm glad I studied English there because the Scots are friendly people and now I'm able to understand any English accent!! I think my following destination would be Australia for two months. Thanks !!

Chrilynhawk,Quinoa, jenn0118, 3LittleBirds, isowish, Veggily, angelene17, Miso Jace, animeidee thank you very much for your welcome and say good things about my English.

Skylark thank you very much! Don't worry about your tortillas!! It takes a long long time to succeed in cook them properly and I'm quite sure yours are better than mines! You know what? Actually, after a lot of failures I learnt how to cook them when I was living in Latvia and one Valencian cook turned to be my neighbor... That was two years ago I hope you had a nice stay in Spain. Ahh!! Your Spanish is perfect!! No mistakes in what you wrote!!
