Two weeks have passed since I touched down at Bilbao airport and started my Year Abroad in the Basque Country. This year I am working for the British Council as a Language Assistant, or Auxiliar in a primary school; a popular choice for language students. Aside from sunning myself on Basque beaches,...

Hello! Hola! Ciao! I’m Evie and I’m a third-year Modern Languages and Cultures student (Spanish and Italian) at Durham University. A huge perk of my degree is that during our third year, it’s compulsory to spend at least seven months abroad – yes, you read that right –...

A week ago today I returned from five days of music, too many beers and definitely too much sun (so much that I had to stop myself sunbathing which, for anyone who knows me, is out of character). This all took place about 80km north of Valencia in the small town of Benicassim, which each year holds the...

The end of my Spanish year abroad as an English language assistant is nearly here, and I can’t quite believe it. Where have the last nine months gone? It seems just a few weeks ago when I left my mum crying her eyes out on the train platform in Wolverhampton, hopped on the plane filled with nerves...

Looking back, I would say the best thing about your Year Abroad is the new cultures and customs you learn. Food, language, people, traditions; Spain has been one-year long culture filled adventure, but one of the highlights for me were the Ferias. Ferias are essentially street parties but with “Casetas”,...

Earlier this month my parents and sister came to visit for the first time. We all really enjoyed the few days we had, but if I were to have them to stay I would do things a bit differently. Here are my tips, obviously it depends on each person so I’ve tried to keep it a bit general as well. Weather When...

None of us are healthy all year round, so potentially falling ill on your Year Abroad is something to prepare for because none of us are invincible. I have asthma and I’m in the South of Spain which has gotten very, very hot and humid very, very quickly. My lungs don’t cope well with this...

Opening a bank account in Spain is fairly easy, as long as you have a passport and proof of work and address. I'd also recommend opening an account once you're a resident/have a NI number equivalent, to avoid paying charges. If you're under 26 a lot of banks won't charge you to have the account, as...

I will be forever grateful to Spaniards for deciding to have such frequent bank holidays. I certainly made the most of the double whammy of a bank holiday we just enjoyed in the region of Madrid (Monday and Tuesday off!). In a panic over not having seen enough Spain, and my flight home at the end of...
