Melody's Journey to Spain

Current Location

Ourense, Galicia, Spain

I am living in the small, beautiful city of Ourense, Spain. I will be teaching English in a local high school and I'm so excited to share this journey with all of y'all!


During a normal week, I spend my mornings helping in English classes at my school.  I use my afternoons to explore a new part of my city, enjoying the summer weather before winter creeps up on us.


I am so excited for this upcoming year in Spain, and it makes me so happy that I can share my journey with all of you! Here you can learn more about me, and I can't wait to learn more about you!

Field Notes

Transportation in Ourense is very similar to transportation in other Spanish cities. One of my favorite things to do is to take a long walk around the city to explore a new area.


After following a group of bagpipers and drummers, we came across a traditional wedding procession in front of one of Ourense's cathedrals. The ceremony was so beautiful to see and experience!
