Happy 2nd Blogoversary to me!

Greetings from Spain! Long time no write! I have access to a computer at the moment, and just wanted to announce that today is my 2-year Blogoversary here at Polyglottony! I'm glad I've been able to stick with this little project for so long, which is a pretty major accomplishment for me! Although not without bouts of radio silence (writer's block, travel, and graduate school being the major culprits), I want to thank all of you who take time to read my musings on the interwebs. I hope to continue to travel and write for years to come, as I still have so much more to learn and share!

 I can't wait to tell about my newest adventures all over Ghana, Morocco, and Spain. Although I wish I could have posted more from the road, I don't regret leaving my laptop at home. I've been moving around so much, and it would have been quite difficult to carry, not to mention that my schedule has been so hectic, I don't know how much I would have been able to write, anyway!

I'd also like to present a small contest! I have accumulated lots of postcards from the places I've been on this particular trip so far! Want a chance to win them? Here's how:
-Comment on this post with a suggestion/curiosity/question about something you'd like to hear/read about in the future, from this particular trip or otherwise
-Contest is open to readers from anywhere
-I'll pull a 'name out of the hat' virtually to determine the winner
-I'll announce the winner at a future date, still TBD, and will notify the winner!

Being that I'm in Spain, instead of a cake to celebrate my blogoversary, a plate of huevos estrellados with jamón serrano and a caña seemed more fitting. ¡Feliz blogoversario a mí!

  1. Olé tú! Here's hoping we'll get to see one another in Galicia. I'm especially excited to hear about Ghana and its linguistic tendencies. Any funny language anecdotes are what I'd loev to see here! Buen viaje, mujer!!

  2. I'd like to know how you're going to pull a name out of a hat virtually. And I'd also like a linguistics lesson about northern Mexican Spanish because I can't handle the "ch" sound that people from Chihuahua make. And finally I'd like to hear how it was returning to Spain after a year in Puerto Rico. Oh and please include lots of pictures of Morocco and Ghana. Miss you, muchacha! <3

      I'd like to hear how much of Gallego you really know and if you're interested in studying it. :)

  3. 1. My sister is in Spain right now, on the home stretch of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela! I'd love to know if you've ever made the Camino, or have plans to.
    2. I'd also like to hear about all the different languages in Spain. Over the 450 miles of the Camino, my sister has encountered at least 3 distinct languages -- and that's not even all of them!
    3. My niece who lived in Spain for a year said that the general word she heard from foodies was that Basque cuisine is considered THE BEST in the whole world! What say you?

    1. Awesome, I can definitely talk about the Camino and Spain's language situation (and of coures, the debate over who has the best food in Spain!)

  5. Ooh, I collect postcards so this is right up my alley!

    I would love to hear more about Morocco. I've always wanted to go there, but am admittedly a little nervous due to unrest I've heard about. Do/did you feel comfortable there and would you recommend it?

    ¡Feliz blogoversario!
