Being based in the vibrant, arty and very central city of Madrid for my year abroad, travelling around Spain has been quite simple because you can find a direct train or coach to pretty much anyway in the country from the city, and often for a very reasonable price; I travelled 6 hours to Malaga for...

Today, I feel like reflecting on the many differences between Spanish and English culture. Being a languages student, I consider myself pretty open-minded, willing to accept that certain things will be different, and enthusiastic enough to dive right in without reservation. No matter how hardy a traveller...

Many people on their year abroad that I know decided to go home for the Easter break, but I chose to stay in Spain and experience their 'Semana Santa' or Holy Week because I had heard that the Spanish celebrate in a different way than at home; of course, I don't represent the majority, but Easter for...

Even though Spain has the reputation for being a cheap country, not everything was as affordable as I expected. Eating out Eating out is definitely one of the things that is as affordable as I thought. A menu del dia is available in most restaurants all over Spain, and is really good value for money...

10 weeks to go… It’s dawned on my recently that my time in Madrid is going extremely quickly, and I only have ten weeks to go before I am home for good. Ten weeks really isn’t a long time; this time ten weeks ago I had a crazy night out, which me and my friends are still talking about,...

So I spent last weekend in Valencia, experiencing the regional festival there called Las Fallas. It’s a festival celebrating rebirth and the coming of spring, which means lots of partying and bonfires. I had no idea what it was before I went, and to be honest thought it was just a load of bonfires....

One thing I’ve learned while being on my year abroad is that not all universities make their students do substantial pieces of home university work while on their year abroad, which means they have all the time in the world to travel, practice their Spanish and eat tapas. Currently I am incredibly...

I thought for this post I could talk about festivals in Spain, as there are a lot of days celebrated in Spain which aren't in the UK. There are normally at least 1 every month, although from September to February there were two!Since September, I've had 10 bank holidays that we don't have in England,...

I never expected studying two languages to be a straightforward endeavour, but I had always thought that if I am paying university tuition fees to learn a language, I might as well chuck another one in there. This was my reasoning for starting Spanish when I arrived at university, already having studied...
