Oh how much I tried to predict this one and got the biggest surprise too. You see, my mother likes to contradict me, and I like to contradict her, and that's how our relationship rolls. Being her a very protective mother, I believed once I told her I wanted to travel alone she would just yell and tell me "absolutely not".
So I one day we were in the living room both watching TV and I said "mum, there's something I wanna do this summer and I think you won't like it...remember when I told you I want to travel, but my friends always have other plans or don't have any money or already went to where I didn't? Well, I wanna go to Spain this summer. Alone...". Now I was expecting BIG time yelling and "no,no,no" and I was really excited when all she said was "Well, I don't like it very much..." but she didn't say no! And all I sensed in her voice was concern and not a "it's totally out of the question"! And believe me, this answer from my mother was the best possible outcome I could ever picture for this conversation!
So with boyfriend and mum on board, all I have left to convince is my dad, but I know he won't stop me from going - but will stay VERY concerned as he thinks I'm way too distracted to go on a trip alone like this.
Now all I have to do is get the money, book my tickets and make some research to be sure I'll be going in a good time. But it's looking good!
Spain, I hope I'll see you soon <3
