I miss the perfect weather and dressing for different seasons. I miss life without mosquito bites. I miss my friends and my roommates - even PokerFace. I miss my salary in Euros and having disposable income to spend on travel. And on shopping - I miss affordable Zara. I miss low cost airlines. I miss free health insurance and cheap groceries. I miss spending the evenings with a glass of wine on my balcony. I miss Ciutadella park. I miss walking everywhere and being in shape. I miss having a gym. I miss living in a city where I always felt safe. I miss running on the beach. I miss al fresco dining. I miss the strawberry mojitos at La Fianna and the pink cava at La Xampa. I miss laughing really hard on a daily basis with my British & Irish colleagues (even if it was about my American accent half the time). I miss 38 hour work weeks and working only 5 days a week. I miss the European lifestyle where its not all work and no play. I miss high speed Internet and not having to worry about electricity and water shortages. I miss tapas portions and Spanish food. I miss castellano spanish. I miss living in a place where its not "all about appearances" and where you're not constantly judged by what you're wearing and your social class.
