I'm Linda, the girl who writes this blog.
I’m a 26 year old Dutch girl who lives in Spain. I moved here in November 2020, in the middle of the pandemic. Here on my blog, I share my thoughts and adventures during the whole moving and settling in process. Basically me trying to figure out my new life.
I work from home as a freelance content creator. In the broadest sense my job is ‘creating content’ for different companies. I mostly do a lot of writing: texts for webshops, blogs, press releases. Besides that, I do other communication tasks, like organising (online) events and PR activities to increase the visibility of a company.
Being here in Galicia is not the first time that I’ve lived abroad. The first time was when I was in university, during my third year of the bachelor in communication and information sciences. I moved to Sheffield, England, where I studied Journalism and English for a semester.
After finishing my master – again in communication – I decided that I wanted to live abroad again. I decided to volunteer trough the European Solidarity Corps. My project was in the mountains in Austria, where I helped to organise a big gymnastics festival. This was a year full of adventures and volunteering is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
During this year I met my Spanish boyfriend, which is the reason why I live in Spain now. Full circle, right?
