Sara's Journey to Spain

Current Location

Oviedo, Spain

Join me on my journey to Asturias, Spain! As a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant, I'll be teaching English in northern Spain, and I'm so excited to share my adventures with you!


After a successful first week at one of the two high schools where I'll be teaching, my friends and I decided to spend the weekend in the coastal city of Gijón to enjoy the weather and beach.


My roommates and some friends and I recently went to a beautiful area of Asturias for the day and fell in love with what we saw.

Field Notes

The food in Asturias and the north part of Spain is different from that of southern Spain. With larger portions and heavier ingredients, many people wouldn't think of it being Spanish at all.


For a weekend trip, some friends and I took a day trip to the nearby region of Galicia where we went to the beautiful beach of Playas de las Catedrales (Beach of the Cathedrals).
