Day 316

Car of the Day:


1997 – 2004 Porsche 911 GT3

Character of the Day:


Quina – A little bit of Salsa

I was introduced to Quina through MJ (Day 308). Between the three of us we had quite the international background. She was born in Germany and lived there until the age of nine. Her parents (both Spanish) decided to return back home to Spain. Her love for Madrid was apparent as she talked about the culture, the city, and the people. Shannon and I have always wanted to visit Spain and Quina quickly reignited our desire.  Quina’s introduction to the US was quite the culture shock. She moved to Boone, NC from Madrid! It only took a year for her to realize Boone wasn’t the place for her and she found her way to the Lake Norman area. Now she’s loving life and teaching pre-schoolers. Her love for the outdoors especially hiking (which coincidentally wasn’t inspired from Boone) keeps her in good shape. I can only imagine how much energy it takes to keep up with a classroom of three year olds. It was a pleasure getting to know Quina and hearing her point of view (especially with her wonderful accent). Her favorite thing about Birkdale… “the atmosphere & Starbucks”.
