Six Months of Life in Spain

Well, we had a big milestone this week– we passed the six month mark of living in Spain! It felt a bit strange, since six months IS a long time, and it also feels a little like we’ve been here six years– the first months of moving to a new place are so packed with […]

Feria Food

Let’s talk about feria food. When you go to feria here in Andalucia, you eat and drink.  People complain that the food is overpriced, but everyone is going to eat (and drink) anyway, since that’s one of the best ways to enjoy yourself in Spain! First of all, there are a lot of foods that […]
