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 [...]

I have been a long-time reader of Zach’s blog, Not Hemingway’s Spain, as well as being a big believe of what it stood for. There is so much more to Spain that what Hemingway wrote about, i.e. the running of the bulls in Pamplona and visiting places like Ronda. If you like reading profound, thought-provoking [...]
Who has the best advice for traveling and visiting new cities? The people I always turn to are the ones who have lived there or spent extensive time there. I love insightful and local tips for destinations, how about you? This week on the Expat Files, we are heading back to Madrid to hear what [...]
Some of my favorite blogs are by writers who aren’t native English speakers. I even sift through countless blogs in Swedish, French, and Spanish, of course – I love to see different perspectives on life, love, fashion and travel from around the world. Makes life more interesting. One of my favorite expat travel blogs NOT [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve offered you guys a new interview with an expat around Spain! This week I thought we’d try something different, and instead of interviewing an American or British expat in Spain, the anonymous Norwegian lady behind New Life in Spain has agreed to participate! As an American expat in Spain, it’s easy [...]
This week for my Expat Files series, I thought we’d take a jaunt down to Extremadura. Never heard of this region in Spain? Don’t worry, most people haven’t. Southwest of Madrid and squashed between Portugal and Andalusia, it’s easy to miss on just about any trip to Spain. Extremadura also happens to be one of [...]
So I’ve been interviewing various expats in different regions all over Spain for my Expat Files series, and I thought I would share the spotlight in La Rioja with friend and fellow blogger, Rebecca. You guys have heard me go on and on about how much I love La Rioja, where my favorite wineries, pincho [...]
Perhaps one of the least known regions in Spain is Galicia. Situated in the northwest corner of the Peninsula above Portugal, Galicia is far from, well, anything. Well off the beaten tourist track, unless you are walking there on the battered dirt roads of the Camino de Santiago, Galicia remains one of the few undiscovered, untouched regions in [...]
So this week on The Expat Files, is the multitalented Lauren from Spanish Sabores, Recetas Americanas, Teach and Travel Spain, and now the founder of Madrid Food Tour! Lauren is one of the few Spain bloggers I have had the pleasure of meeting in person, and I always look forward to emails from her blog! [...]
Hands down, one of my favorite expat bloggers in Spain is none other than Liz of Liz en España. Apart from the fact the fact that she is another blonde, northern Spain blogger named Liz, we have loads in common and are very similar travelers. In fact, she is one of only a few online bloggers I have been lucky [...]
Ever since I discovered Cassandra’s witty blog, Gee, Cassandra, about life as a Fulbright scholar in Madrid, I’ve been hooked. Until recently, for me Spain’s capital had become just a place to pass through on my way traveling and working around the country. However, reading about it on her blog reminds me just how much [...]
I have been reading Cat’s blog, Sunshine and Siestas for a long time now. Now that I am in La Rioja in the north, sometimes I get twinges of homesickness for life back in Andalucía, where I was living in Córdoba. Whenever this feeling sneaks up on me, I head on over to Cat’s blog [...]
