In the beginning of last summer, riled up by all my problems with Spanish bureaucracy, I wrote a post entitled 12 things I miss about America. Little did I know I hit on such a hot and controversial issue! Fights were breaking out in the comment section and on twitter about touchy topics like to-go coffee [...]

Living in La Rioja, northern Spain for a year was one of the best experiences of my life. La Rioja has everything you want when coming to Europe, a beautiful, diverse landscape, great food, even better wine and some of the most amazing people you’ll ever meet. Even after 365 days in this little region, [...]
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 [...]
Source Slowly the sun began to peek over the tops of buildings and the sky grew from black to dark blue in the early hours of the morning. Thousands of people dressed in white and red are sobering up and loitering around the old quarter of Pamplona for the last day of San Fermín, waiting [...]
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 [...]
“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 [...]
San Fermín 2012 Sorry I fell off the face of the planet for the past week guys! I took an unexpected wee vacation from my blog. I have been really stressed out for my plans for next year, and then I got hired last minute at a summer camp in Navarra; so basically last week [...]
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 [...]
Over the past year I think I have hinted here and there about why I chose to live in Logroño, La Rioja, Spain. Of all the cities on the Iberian Peninsula, why on earth did I pick the one that nobody has ever heard from? Just to be a pain in the ass? With the [...]
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 [...]
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.
