  • Reflections of what I gained from my first year in Spain 7 years ago Flashbacks of my first year seem to pervade my mind right before I give away to sleep.

I love hearing about how Lauren is using her time abroad as an English teacher to travel and explore her interest in sustainable farming and agriculture. It's like I'm reading a story that unfolds day by day. A great expat blog!

Lauren shares an honest and passionate approach to living as an Expat. Her stories indulge the reader in a lifestyle and experience not written about in the guide books, or romance novels and instead focus on the self and culturally discoveries along the way. Would recommend that others read her insightful and mature writing.
