I write this as I am currently in the middle of a flat-hunting panic, one that is consuming most of my waking hours. Looking for accommodation in a country where you aren’t fluent in the language, where you haven’t spent much time before, and where you are generally unaware of local renting...

Living in another country definitely allows you to learn way more about it than what you would just visiting for a week or two. I have been in Spain for 5 months now, and I have learnt a lot: If you walk into a shop (not a supermarket sized shop) without greeting the shop assistants, you’re...

January is probably my least favourite month of the year; all the festivities from Christmas and New Year are over, the weather is pretty dreary and we have to return to reality. Reality isn’t so bad for me this year, now being back in Spain after spending two weeks at home. Yet, I have started...

Yesterday I arrived back in Spain after a nice long break to relax back in England, thanks to schools closing from 22nd December until 8th January. I was especially looking forward to going back home as by the end of December all us teachers had got ill and the students were getting pretty restless –...

I’m not usually one to think of new year resolutions because I’m not very good a sticking to them, but being on my year abroad in Spain I wanted to think of some; I don’t want to regret not doing something or not changing something in six months’ time. I have loved my first three...

The last three or so weeks could easily compare to a rollercoaster, with lots of peaks and very sudden drops and swerves. Three weeks ago on Saturday marked the end of a wonderful week with my boyfriend, who came to visit me for the first time in Madrid. We did so much: we watched the Real Madrid vs...

This week I have been working as an English Language assistant in Madrid, Spain, for 8 weeks and I can’t believe how quickly it is going. In this time, I have come to realise that there are quite a few differences between the British and Britain, and the Spanish and Spain. Firstly, life is so...
