Handstands Around Spain

For those who follow my instagram, you'll notice that it is dominated by pictures of me doing handstands while I'm traveling. Over the last year in Spain, I've compiled an impressive collection of handstands in some really amazing places. I've done handstands in 31 of the 50 provinces of Spain. 22 are pictured below.

Click on the pictures to read about that specific adventure! Hover over the provinces in red to see where I've been. Leave me comments below.

8 Things This American Misses About Europe

8 Signs That I’m Becoming European (the alternate title)

After three weeks in the US, I was noticing all the wonderful things that I had missed about my country. However, now that I'm back in Spain and readjusting to the Spanish lifestyle, I'm noticing the things that I missed about Europe while I was in the US. It's only appropriate, right? Plus, I have to say good things about Europe too, or they might not let me continue living here. So, without further ado, I present the meat and potatoes of this post. (Or, the chorizo and bread, for my Spanish audience.) 

1. The metric system is just easier. Enough said.

Top 10 Questions This American Hears in Spain

I'm really enjoying making these infographics. So much so, that I will likely make many of my future lists, solely as infographics. Unless the legions that are my followers, prefer me to write out the blogs? One, two, and three. So, all three of my followers are cool with the infographics. Your will is my bidding.

This American's Favorites (100th Post)

This is definitely the hardest post I've done. I already have trouble committing to live in one place, do one job, have one personality...

But, in honor of my 100th post, I would like to finally decide and share what are some of my favorites, based on the questions people have asked me over the years. So, knowing that I can declare these as my favorites, and then later change my mind, I finally, reluctantly, undecidedly, present to you, my favorites, so far.

This American's Random Travels Around Spain pt.1

No hay ningún viaje malo, excepto el que conduce a la horca. (There is no bad trip except for the one that goes to the gallows.) -Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

I usually write a full post for my adventures, but in 2015 I had so many adventures in and around Spain, that I couldn't keep up! That's a good thing. But, now that I have some downtime, I'm trying to catch up on my writing and I will start with some of the smaller trips I took last year. So, here are three, day / weekend trips I took last year, that were lots of fun, but I never found time to blog. Sorry / you're welcome / thank you / I know right! / slash.


Greg and I head out to hang out with Suzana for the day, as we walk around and explore downtown Vitoria-Gasteiz.
