Olivia's Journey to Spain

Current Location

Oviedo, Asturias, Spain

Hi! I'm Olivia Panda and I'm currently a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Asturias, Spain. I can't wait to share this amazing journey with you!


The Valle de Aller, or Aller Valley is situated in a very rural part of Asturias. Both of my school assignments are in Aller. The towns in Aller are completely different from Oviedo, where I live!


Thank you so much for following my journey to Spain! I hope you have learned just as much as I have.

Field Notes

Chestnuts are an incredibly popular winter snack in Asturias. It is a very important Christmas tradition.


I traveled to one of the towns where some of my students live to hike the Foces del Pino trail. On the trail, I saw many different animals, spectacular views and for the first time in my life, snow!
