From 2010 to 2011, I was lucky enough to call Córdoba, Spain home. Nestled between Sevilla and Granada, two rockstar Spanish cities in the south, Córdoba often gets overlooked on traditional itineraries. Many times, tour buses just stop there for a day trip to visit the famous Mezquita mosque-cathedral if at all. But believe me, [...]

This week’s Expat Files takes us down to sunny, beautiful southern Spain and to one of my favorite cities, Granada. I don’t know about you guys, but I am in dire need of some sunshine, spring, and charm, all of which Granada oozes by the bucketload. Molly has been an expat in Spain for 15 [...]
While I am away traveling in Turkey this week, I have lined up some guest posts by some of my favorite bloggers, posts about places I hope to make it to one day. This post is from Trevor, a long-time internet buddy and writer over at A Texan in Spain. Trevor is teaching English down [...]
There is so much more to Spain than Madrid, Barcelona, Granada and Sevilla. As much as I love those cities, one major goal of mine on this blog is to showcase all of the lesser-known, often-overlooked gems around the rest of Spain. Over the years I have traveled around most of the Iberian Peninsula, and [...]

Before I moved to Logroño, I lived for a year in Córdoba, in sunny southern Spain teaching English in a tiny village named “Mirror” (Espejo), I kid you not! Often overlooked and under appreciated, Córdoba has charm and tranquility by the bucketload, if you take the time to get to know it. It is the perfect [...]
Sunburnt and happy in Nerja When people think of traditional Spain, they tend to imagine the bright blue skies and the white hilltop villages that embody southern Spain. Girls twirling around in fluffy flamenco dresses while drinking sangria and hot manly boys dramatically fighting 1000lb bulls, that was certainly what I thought as soon as [...]
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away” So you are planning a trip to Spain, are you? Or maybe you are even moving here soon? What do you want to see? What do you want to do? Where do you even begin?! Don’t [...]
First night of Semana Santa near my apartment, domingo de ramos Two weeks ago was Easter in Spain. Now Easter here is rather a big deal. In fact they take a whole week to observe it. This week is called Semana Santa (Holy Week), and no where is it better celebrated than here in Andalucía. [...]
Who is Young Adventuress?
I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling and Spain when I was 16 years old. On my own, 8 years and 25 countries later, my wanderlust has only grown and the list of countries I want to visit longer. Nowadays I call Logroño, Spain my home, where I split my time between teaching English, writing and traveling. Follow my adventures as I wander, eat, and photograph my way around the world.
