- Visa Woes—Part 3 3 months ago When we last left off my tale of our struggle to get Mario a green card, we had sent in all our documents to the NVC (National Visa Center), and we were waiting. Again. The NVC tells you that you will have to wait at least 60 days. If there is any error in the mountains of […]
- Out West, Visiting Nevada and Tahoe 3 months ago Before Mario got a job (update on that soon, and yes, he is amazing!), we decided to head out west to visit my brother and sister-in-law, who live in Nevada, close to Lake Tahoe, wine country, and Yosemite National Park. You know, no big deal. It’s not gorgeous out there or anything. Mario was...
- How to See Venice on a Budget 3 months ago Before I dive into it, thanks to Kaley for featuring me here on her blog! I was laughing pretty hard at her post about things that are different about her life in Spain—I love when things differ in those unexpected ways, but yeah, whenever I go to a gym abroad, I definitely still find greeting...
- The Immigrant Experience—A Spaniard in the U.S. 3 months ago Guest post by Mario, first in Spanish (translation follows, for all you monolinguals or just those who don’t speak Spanish): Mario in Yosemite Al poco de llegar a los EE.UU., Kaley me pidió que, por favor, escribiera una entrada para su blog en la que comentase algunas diferencias entre los...
- Visa Woes—Part 2 4 months ago After filing the I-30 and other relative forms, the next step was to wait. I was curious about how long it was all going to take, so I started googling.

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.
