    To Pueblo or Not to Pueblo: Small Town vs Big City

    When we found out last year that we were moving to Spain in the Auxiliares program, we jumped in the air, Anchorman style, with elation. How exciting to move to the land of flamenco, churros and, more importantly, forced siestas! Then I looked at my letter confirming...

    For anyone looking to visit a city close to Madrid, Toledo is a beautiful and ancient city that simply can’t be missed. Beautiful castles, rich history and medieval knights, Toledo deserves more than just a day trip. Here’s how you can spend 48hrs in Toledo! As I had...

    A winter weekend in the Sierra Nevada, Spain

    Why Sierra Nevada? For the uninitiated, the Sierra Nevada mountains, just outside Granada, are home to Europe’s southern-most ski fields, boasting warm sunshine and probably the longest ski season of any resort in Europe. Oh, and only 1hr from Granada and within a two...
