Goodbye Madrid

JIYOUNG SIM- It feels like it has not been so long since I first came here but now we only have less than two weeks left in Madrid. I still have one more post to write but that one will be about my trip to Cuenca which will be later this week, so in today’s […]


San Sebastián

JIYOUNG SIM- What I love about traveling in Spain is that every part of this country has something unique about it. Every part of Spain I have visited made a different impression from the others. This time I went to the northern part of Spain. I have heard from so many people that the northern […]

Salamanca Reflejo Duero


JIYOUNG SIM- Salamanca is a city located not so far away from Madrid. It takes three hours by bus to get there from Madrid, so it is a great place to take a one-day trip. I went to Salamanca last weekend and had a great time there so in today’s post I will write about […]

My Internship at Patrivalor

Spain is relatively safer than other European countries and Madrid is the second safest city in Europe after Copenhagen so there is […]
