I found my favorite spot in Spain thus far – the beautiful beach town at the southernmost tip of Spain – Tarifa!

We may have only been there for a few hours, but Tarifa was worth the visit.

The beaches? Stunning. The vibe? Perfect. I would live on the beach in Tarifa if I could.

What’s even cooler? You can see Morocco from the beach; Africa is just a ferry ride away!

Seville, Spain

Seville. You need to see this place. It’s a contender for the “Most Beautiful Place I’ve Ever Seen” award. My friends and I took a day trip to Seville – it was almost 2 hours away via bus (very affordable – … Continue reading

Update: Whew!

Hey, guys!

I apologize for the delay in new posts! As it turns out, studying abroad is an extraordinarily busy time. Who would’ve thought?…

Hang tight – I have a bunch of new pictures and posts coming up as we speak! Possible topics may include: my new hometown of Tarifa, a Spanish cooking class (paella and sangria included), the Plaza de España in Seville, El Puerto de Santa María, a boat, an ancient castle with a winery in the basement, and (my personal favorite)… Cádiz sunsets!

(Actual footage of me, trying to post all of these blogs for you guys before I start cramming for my Intensive Spanish 3 & 4 final.)

Our first night out!

Last night, my classmates and I decided to all go out together and get some tapas. After all, how do you go to Spain and not do tapas?

The tapas were phenomenal. My favorite dish of the night was croquetas de calamares. I would eat them every day for the rest of my life.  I also ordered my first Spanish beer – except, it was cider, I’m not a beer girl – and it was honestly the best thing I’ve ever tasted.

And… it was €1. I haven’t stopped thinking about how good it was.

And what better way to follow up on tapas than with gelado?

Mine was cheesecake and berry flavored.

After tapas y gelado, we walked around, exploring the beautiful city of Cádiz after the sun went down.

City hall is a personal favorite photo spot of mine, and the Plaza de España is a close second.

Between seeing the sights, conversing with locals, trying the local fare, and, of course, walking along the beach, it was definitely a super fun and successful night out with new friends!
