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!


This week was full of rain, cloudy days, chestnuts, hot springs, and delicious food.


I have really enjoyed sharing some of my Spanish life with all of you through these articles. I am looking forward to video calling soon to talk more with all of you!

Field Notes

Spain has a fairly large homeless population, partly caused by the high rates of unemployment it has seen in recent decades.


This past weekend I visited the gorgeous city of Salamanca, in the Spanish region of Castilla y León. Salamanca is known for two cathedrals, beautiful sandstone buildings, and its many students.
