Welcome to Where Noelle Goes, thank you for stopping by! I created this space to house all of my experiences involving travel and how experiencing new cultures has the power to shift one's mindset. To start, my name is Noelle Nercessian, a recent college graduate who found herself panicking over the post-grad job hunt. The thought of a traditional 9-5 desk job was beginning to truly weigh on me, my mind was constantly going back to images of me sitting at some desk day in and day out. I got my undergrad degree in public relations and Spanish, and while I absolutely love the industry of strategic communications and marketing, I simply didn't feel that I was ready to commit to my career quite yet. Tell me that I would have been thinking this a year ago and I'm sure I would have rolled my eyes at you. Read a few posts on my original lifestyle blog, What Noelle Knows and you'll see what I'm talking about... I was dead set on finding a career job ASAP. 

Now, here I am, planning on leaving for Madrid for a year to go teach English to young Spaniards. When you have two options in front of you: a 9-5 (realistically, more hours than that) entry-level job, and then working 16 hours a week to teach English in one of the most beautiful cities in the world... What are you going to choose? SPAIN. With a supportive family and friend group behind me, I knew that it was the right decision that I would regret if I didn't do. 

I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain in my junior year of college and I never really stopped thinking about Spain. I absolutely love the country and its customs, language and lifestyle. Beyond Spain, I also fell in love with travel and all that it teaches you. I was able to visit 27 different cities during my time abroad, and every day I am adding new cities to my list that I can't wait to check off. 

On Where Noelle Goes you can expect to see posts regarding anything and everything involving travel: packing, planning, booking, walking, worrying, eating, dancing and being in awe of the planet and its people. Until I leave for Madrid in August, I will write posts about my past travels as well as the planning process: the good, the bad and the frustrating.
