The one where I was heading to one town and ended up in a completely different one.

I can see that this blog is a bigger commitment than I first thought, especially when you run the risk of typing out a whole story and then when you go to upload, the page has timed out. This happened to me a couple of days ago and I was so pissed off ... Read more >

An Australian, an Englishman, a Canadian, a Swede and a hot South African walk into a bar...

I suppose a better title for this story would be 'Tales from Málaga' but it wouldn't be as interesting as the current title (and let's be honest, suck you into clicking on the link) and it also wouldn't describe what I did while in Málaga. Yep, I drank.... Read more >

My tobillo is killing me!

Saturday, 23 Feb 2008 | Views [1266]

I have learnt many Spanish words in the last month, but by far the ones that I use most are 'gracias' and 'tobillo'.  Clearly, I use gracias about a hundred times a day: when the hostel has found a spare bed for me, when the old man at the shop gives ... Read more >

Sorry, but I can't understand what you say when you speak American.

I like Spain. I like the people, the language, the food (obviously the cheese), the scenery and the fast trains. Spain is great. But what is it with all of the American students?! The American tourists I don't mind, but the American students drive me ... Read more >

Shrinkage and a Supercilious Frenchman: The Trials of Hostel Life

Thursday, 14 Feb 2008 | Views [1058] | Comments [2]

The hostel I have been staying at in Madrid has been quite good.   The breakfasts are awesome, though incredibly carb-laden.   I eat a lot of toast and cereal and I leave the dodgy looking ‘breakfast cakes’ to the Europeans.   The beds are quite ... Read more >

Hm, long time, no blog. I'd like to say it was because I was incredibly busy immersing myself in the awesomeness of Madrid, and it's true - I was. However, laziness was the reason why I haven't written in a while and I can already forsee this problem ... Read more >

The Prostitutes and I like to hang out at Gran Vía

I’m still in Madrid and I will continue to be for a few more days, as I have just booked until Tuesday morning.   This is partly because I am still enjoying Madrid and also because I now have a month to fill in time while I wait to start my tours ... Read more >

I'd like to be able to say that I sensed how special Madrid was from the moment that I got off the night train from Barcelona. However, considering my journey on the train consisted of ten hours of trying to sleep upright, avoiding conversation with ... Read more >

More queso, por favor!

Saturday, 2 Feb 2008 | Views [910] | Comments [1]

My name is Bronwen and I'm addicted to tapas. It has been a dangerous addiction and I'm sure the road to recovery will be hellish and difficult but with the support of my family and friends I'm sure that I will get through it.  The problem is that the ... Read more >

I am in a state of euphoria right now. Why? Because of food, of course! Let me set the scene... Bronwen walks to the Mambo Tango Hostel counter to speak to Marina, the receptionist, about food. Bronwen : Hola, Marina. I was wondering if you could ... Read more >

Yesterday I felt as though I was in the middle of one of those tragic British reality shows set in an airport. There were angry UK bogans and cancelled flights and I was worried I would never get out of London and get to Barcelona. Thankfully, it all ... Read more >
