Why Alhambra Is Still My Favourite Thing in Spain

Before I moved to Spain, I had read a lot about the history of Spain, its people, and its position in Europe. While some places in Europe are, quite frankly, less fascinating in terms of their history, Spain has always stood out to me for its extremely diverse culture. Perhaps part of that is because where my parents … Continue reading

The Aftermath: How Spain Still Affects Me

There’s something extremely bizarre about feeling more culturally connected to a foreign country – one that you only spent two years of your life in – rather than where you happened to grow up. When I speak of my experience in Spain, I often have to interject with, “but those were the two most influential … Continue reading

The Great Canary Island: A Holiday in Gran Canaria

It all started with an early morning flight. My friend, Monica, and I had decided that it was worth trekking to Madrid’s airport at 5am to catch a well-priced flight to Spain’s Canary Islands. Why? We had heard the Canary Islands were magical – several different islands off the coast of Morocco in the Atlantic … Continue reading

The Spanish Titans: Madrid vs. Barcelona

Whether you’ve lived in Spain or not, it’s fairly well-known that any comparison between Madrid and Barcelona often ends in a heated debate. More often than not, football (the world’s most popular sport, of course) is often at the center of such a debate, or at least mentioned. This was, in truth, how it was … Continue reading
