Last Few Days in Spain: Headed Home

I may not have learned much more Spanish in Spain, but I certainly learned British!

Bits and Bobs is just one of the many expressions. Oh, and don’t say ‘pants’ in front of a group of Spanish students (or Brits) unless you actually intend to talk about underwear. That made for an interesting lesson …

Here are some more pictures. I’m sitting at the Madrid-Barajas airport and I’m forcing myself to stay out of Zara and buying everything my credit car limit will feasibly allow. I’m looking forward to heading home today to see freiends, family, and cat.

Our last night out in Sevilla was a little chilly but packed full of all of the things I’ve grown to love about Andalucia and our neighborhood. We started the night at the best restaurant in town for Flamenco in Miligritos, followed by time spent sitting on the patio having great conversation with a few of our friends who live in town.

Granada & The Alhambra

This past weekend a few of the girls in the CELTA class and I headed out to Granada. I had wanted to spend every weekend here out of town, travelling north in Spain, south to Morocco, and heading over to the Alhambra in Granada. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do a few of those, but I’m making Granada happen for sure. Once we came to an agreement to head out of tow this weekend, I rented a car, and seeing as I’m the only one of us able to drive standard vehicle, I drove. We ventured out through the countryside to go see the Alhambra almost completely unaware of what to expect. Continue Reading


One Week Left in Sevilla


Currently sitting at this really cool Indian/Spanish tapas bar right. With all the distractions buzzing around me on the street, motorcycles, people walking by chatting with one another, an the clattering of plates in the kitchen, I’m struggling to focus on much else besides the ambiance of this restaurant. Let alone focus one iota of effort towards planning my relatively complicated lesson for tomorrow.  Continue Reading


Hungry in Sevilla


Quick bit from me today.

It’s busy today in the city. Lots of people out walking around enjoying the weather and bustling from every corner of the area from one appointment to the next. Continue Reading
