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, [...]

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 [...]
Making new friends on a local hike in La Rioja in September I’ve just finished up my second year working in Spain as an auxiliar de conversación, a English language teaching assistant though the Spanish Ministry of Education. This program is a great way for Americans to have the opportunity to come and live in [...]
Me and the Easter bunny Right now Semana Santa or Holy Week is in full swing in Spain. Or it would be if it wasn’t raining like crazy. As I am writing this I can hear the crowds of people outside my apartment and the boom boom boom of the processional drums. Easter is celebrated [...]
While I was wasting time at work this afternoon, I began to sift through the vaults of unpublished posts on my blog. Seriously, who does this? Anyways, I came across this draft I meant to post a year ago when I was living in southern Spain. There has been a mystery brewing in Córdoba, and [...]
Hi everyone! I feel like I have been so late with posting things on here! I have been inundated with work and things to do that I have very little time for writing. I have a bunch of new blogging projects coming up which I am super excited about and can’t wait to share on [...]
At some point in June on my way to and from Málaga and Logroño trying to sort out my visa nightmare, I passed through my town of Córdoba where I stopped for a few days to say my last goodbyes, visit my school one last time in Espejo, and take in La noche blanca del [...]
Castillo de Almodóvar del Río In June I finally made it out to a castle I had been dying to go to all year: Castillo de Almodóvar del Río. I had passed by it dozens of times on the train to Sevilla, watching it’s tall towers in the distance, wondering where it was when I [...]
My walk across Córdoba every morning On my last day of school I decided to bring my camera with me to document my walk. Everyday for 8 months, I walked the same route, rain or shine, and I figured I might as well photograph it (since I photograph everything else). For me it serves as [...]
Walking to the fería in Córdoba 2011 So after three straight weeks of festivals in Córdoba in May (cruces, patios, romería and cata del vino) you would think that everyone would want to take a breather and relax, get ready for summer. Nope! Those three weeks were just a warm-up to get everyone ready for [...]
So let’s talk wine! As the daughter of parents who are big wine enthusiasts, I have been happy to shun knowledge of good wine and be content to drink just about anything, as long as it’s cheap! But no more because in Spain you can find really good wine for really cheap. I am talking [...]
