So amidst my packing boxes, saying good bye, throwing away lots of unwanted things, trying to decide what I want to bring to my new life! I recorded my first podcast! It was a scary feat to begin with but I even did it in a foreign language and not my first foreign language but my 4th (German 1st, French 2nd (don’t speak anything!) Chinese 3rd (yeah right!) so Spanish 4th!)! I was so incredibly nervous! I wrote all my notes to the questions but in English I don’t remember why really anymore but it did help me prepare for the interview! As you can see from my photo I really did prepare a lot of material! It was a great experience I have to say. We laughed I think from the beginning to the end! What was even more nerve racking was that I the very first one to do any type of podcast for the company! I did the podcast with Alberto Amarcord Bodas de Cine, they are the same fantastic group who made my wedding trailer! (If you haven’t already scroll down and look for all you need is love video here on my blog!)
You’re probably wondering how this all started well. When we went to pick up our wedding video Alberto and he asked me casually if I was interested in doing a podcast talking about my wedding and the planning and so-forth . I causally said yes and told him that I would be leaving the country in a few weeks and thought well yeah never gonna happen! Well the week before I left Alberto called and said hey can you still record the pod cast? I said yeah why not! Then when I hung up the phone I was like oh my god! What on earth was I thinking!! So I nervously prepared my notes but going through each of his questions and writing down my answers in English. Well it’s the fastest way for me to respond! The only thing was my recording would be in Spanish! So I arrived we sat down he offered me headphones so I could hear myself and I said oh no way! I will die if I listen to myself. (I nearly did when I heard my interview only a few short weeks later!). I have never heard myself recorded in Spanish before. It was very weird and it didn’t even feel like it was me talking!
So for all you Spanish speakers out there! I invite you to listen and tell me what you think of my Spanish skills (after living in Zaragoza for 4 1/2 years) and my answers to the questions! For you American‘s well here is your chance to practice your Spanish skills for when my husband and I have children! hahaha because you know we are going to teach them Spanish so you can learn with them!
One more thing! Alberto mentioned a book I had from the wedding and that I would post photos. I am still waiting for my wedding planning book! As soon as I get it from my Spanish friend I will post pics!!!
