- Holy Week Foods in Zamora, Spain 3 days ago You may have realized this by now, but food in Spain is a pretty big deal. Buying the ingredients, choosing just the right store, preparing dishes, the presentation, the first bite, talking about the food you’re eating, savoring the food, talking about the meal in general … all of these are...
- La Familia and Independence 1 week ago Ah, la familia. Mothers and fathers. Sisters and brothers. Cousins, aunts, uncles. Grandparents. Godmothers and godfathers. “Aunts” and “uncles”. The friends who feel like family. In Spain, there is a saying, or perhaps more of a refrain: Madre, sólo hay una. You have but one mother. If...
- The Expat Divide: Should I Stay or Should I Go Now? 1 week ago The questions are always there, lingering. They are questions you ask yourself. They are questions others ask of you. They are questions that go unanswered. Are you staying? When are you going? Where, indeed, is home? I am blessed in that, if I so chose, I could stay in Spain forever. I didn’t...
- So You're Dating a Spaniard—Season 2 weeks ago This is an interview I received last October. Eek. As you can see, I’m a bit behind on my interviews. It seems they’re never ending, but I love it. Personally, I feel a learn a bit from every person I have the privilege to interview. That said, here’s Season! Hi! My name is Season, and […]
- Here's to the Crazy Ones: Teaching English in Spain 2 weeks ago Last year (well, last school year), I thought I found the perfect job: I was working in a primary school. The school was bilingual, and the kids could understand me. The kids were mainly wonderful, and I loved working with them. The school was fairly close to my house. (For Madrid standards) I felt...

This is one of my favorite travel blogs! I love how the author can capture you in her story as in 'On the Road to Salamanca' but also creates a fun learning experience for unique literary circumstances such as in ' Como esta usted?'. Being married to someone from another country myself, I'm always delighted to read her posts about her life in her adopted country with her Spanish husband!

I always look forward to the new blogs. I read them as soon as I get notification in my email. I hope the author keeps writing for a long time.

Kaley's blog is the perfect balance of engaging personal narrative and genuinely useful insight into life in a new country. We are drawn to her posts because of her charismatic writing and personal story, yet she never crosses that line into vanity publishing (you all know what I mean). And she has something real—actual expertise and local knowledge—to share with her readers. Let's face it, this is what we (the readers) really want from an expat blog, fun to draw us in, but substance to keep us satiated.
