- What American Tapas Restaurants Get Wrong 2 days ago The other day, while reading my mother’s copy of Reader’s Digest, I stumbled along a “funny” quote: This shouldn’t have enraged me … but it did. Okay, perhaps “enraged” is the wrong word to use, but I was rather miffed after reading this. I even Tweeted about how this person...
- What's It Like Being With a Guiri? 1 week ago After reading Girl in Florence’s post about her boyfriend’s thoughts about being with an American, I thought I’d interview Mario about his thoughts about life and love with a guiri (Spain Spanish for “foreigner”). He is really too kind, though, and it was hard to get out any juicy...
- What Do You Miss Most? 1 week ago You know how, when asked to list what we miss about ourrespective countries, expats always say “friends and family”? It’s true, of course, that we (mostly) all miss those nearest and dearest to ous who happen to live thousands of miles away, but it’s also kind of a cop out. I mean, I know I...
- Two Years 2 weeks ago Today is my two-year anniversary with the love of my life. There’s much to say that hasn’t been said about Mario, but I’ll leave that for him and me. Suffice it to say that he’s the one I’d always hoped for when I was a teenager, the one I prayed about in college, the one […]

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.
