So today marks six weeks since I started teaching, and a week since I’ve gone back home for the first time. I initially didn’t want to go back to England before Christmas, as I thought it would make it harder to come back to Spain. If I had been feeling really homesick and had gone home,...

So I've now been in Spain for a month! It's gone really quickly and for me I've found that I'm not feeling that homesick, which I'm relieved about. I think the key to that has been that I've been trying to keep super busy, and I feel quite settled here.I've mainly kept busy l by going to Erasmus events,...

So I’ve just come to the end of my first week of teaching at two primary schools in Aviles. After attending the training day at Madrid, I had got a lot of conflicting advice from previous auxiliars, which made me quite nervous to start. However I’ve really enjoyed the first week, and I think...

I left England full of mixed emotions last Tuesday. I was excited about the prospect of living in the beautiful Madrid, a city that I had only visited once before and loved. However, I could not ignore the nerves, anxiety and stress of what was coming: tonnes of administration, somehow finding friends,...

My teacher helped me by researching online, but until I went to the office that's when I actually found out what I needed.I spent a day trying to register, using a form my teacher had told...

As I’d already lived in private rented accommodation at uni, I thought finding a flat in Spain would be just as easy. The usual things such as a deposit, bills (included or not), budget, and best location were what I had in mind. However, it soon hit me that it’s very different in Spain,...

When most people think of Spain they think of long golden beaches, paella, sangria, flamenco and bulls, which, don’t get me wrong, is Spain especially in the South but head to the North of the county and the culture and images you have are surprisingly different. My university required me to spend...

I am writing this whilst on a flight on my way back to Valencia for a holiday (as if living there for 5 months wasn’t enough). I’ve been trying to plan a few things for my friends and I to do, with the most important thing being eating, so I thought I’d share with you my favourite restaurants...
