  1. I’m so happy to have found this blog!! I taught ESL classes in Spain over one summer about 7 years ago, and I often dream of going back to visit (in my wildest dreams, I fantasize about moving ^_~) Can’t wait to read all the posts!

    1. Hey Ashlita! Happy you found it, too! I came back for a second stint because I enjoyed my initial experience so much. I know I’ll always have a yearning to come back again. Maybe we’ll run into each other!:)

    1. Hey Nita –

      I’m actually in the process of writing a post on how I moved to Spain not once, but twice. I’ll be sure to ping you once it’s done. In the meantime, you might want to check out this program (www.ciee.org) – which is how I came to Spain the first time. It’ll at least give you a place to start. Thanks for reading!

  2. Hi Kisha,
    I just got lucky and stumbled across your gem of a blog. It has really great information. I’m considering teaching aboard and Spain is on my list. I’m wondering if you would have any tips for me. I will be graduating with my Masters in Humanities by Dec. I’m a culture junkie who studied History for my BA. Overall, I want a different way of living and being that I don’t have anything to hold me back I decided this could be a lifestyle change for me. I’m serious about the Expat life. I look forward to reading more from you.

    1. Hey Sonja –

      First off, thanks for reading! Glad you’ve found info here that’s been helpful for you. I’m actually in the process of penning a post about what to consider if you want to move to / teach in Spain. I will definitely ping you when it’s done! I think you’ll find expat life to be a challenging and rewarding experience that will add a depth to your studies that you could never have gotten in a classroom environment.

  3. Hi,

    Your website is interesting. I’m going to Malaga in September for the school year and would like to know more about the city and the basics of living there, e.g. neighborhoods that are good to live in.

    Any advice you may have is welcome. Hope to hear from you.
    I read everything on the blog:)

    1. Hey Narandra – Thanks for reading everything! :) So glad to hear that you’ll be coming to Malaga! I love this town – I think it’s got a little bit of all the good things that spain has to offer, without being too large / overwhelming like the larger cities of madrid & barcelona. Sadly, I won’t be here when you arrive in September… would have loved to help you get to know the city. In lieu of that, I’ll put together some notes on ‘Malaga highlights’, and dedicate the resulting blog post to you. how’s that sound? 😉

  4. Hi,
    So glad I came across your blog, I shared some of the same experiences as yourself. I lived and worked in Malaga as a Language Assistant and had one of the best experiences of my life. It is so nice to see other women (in their 30’s and older) experiencing the same.

  5. Hi,
    I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! I have so many questions! I’m interested in teaching English and I would love any tips you have!
    Thank You,
    J

  6. Kisha! Thank you for your blog! I spent a year in Bollullos Par del Condado (Huelva) with Spain’s Auxiliares de Conversacion program, and loooved it. Reading your blog takes me back girl, to good, the cray, and the delicious. I had many moments where I gave up on hoping for Spain to be politically correct, lol “oh Espana!” how I miss you! Keep on writing!!
