My name is Lauren and I’m 24 years old.
For most of my life I lived in the small town of Sutton, Massachusetts.
I’ve always appreciated my life there, but I knew early on that I wanted to see more! Despite not coming from a family of travelers, I found a way to leave home at 16 and spend a summer in Sicily, Italy. After, I was always working and saving for my next trip. In college I studied abroad for one year, between Argentina and Granada, Spain. But it still wasn’t enough…
After graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with degrees in Hospitality and Tourism Management and Spanish, I decided to return to Spain with a program to teach English to high school students. I can’t say it was an enlightening experience, but I survived. Seville is a beautiful city where I can say I really lived the good life: tapas, cervezas, siestas, playa… what more could I really ask for?
But I suppose the most exciting thing that happened to me in Spain was meeting Alejandro, my boyfriend!
Now, two years after moving to Spain my life has been turned upside down again. I just got married, I’m unemployed, and hoping to move to Madrid and figure out my life.
Here I write, share pictures, stories, and advice, and also my always growing love for food and eating.
A mix of food blog, travel diary, expat guide, and more, I hope you enjoy my posts! Maybe I’ll encourage someone to take a trip, try a recipe, or eat something new.
