Horchata in Valencia, Spain

Horchata in Valencia, Spain

Since I am 7 months into an 8 months trip, I'll start with an overview of where I've been and what I've done so far:

October 2013- I did a month long TEFL program in Florence, Italy. It was absolutely amazing, and by that I mean Florence was amazing, not the program. I do not recommend quick programs like this! But I will do a whole post about my experience there.

Novemeber-December 2013- I left Italy for the UK and headed to Leicester (pronounced like Lester) for a work exchange through workaway.info. I was killing time until my boyfriend, Kevin, met me to continue our travels. I spent a week housesitting alone in Cambridge, and he joined me for the second week.

January 2014- We had New Years in London (a disaster), and then headed down to Lisbon Portugal, then Ericeira. We did a wonderful week long workaway near Bajajoz, Spain, as well, and visited Seville and Granada. We also had a disastrous hiking experience.

February 2014- We spent the month working at an outdoor rec center near Murcia, Spain, then visited Valencia and Barcelona.

March 2014- We flew to Budapest and headed down to Zagred, Croatia, then over to Timisoara, Romania for a short work exchange, then off to Sibiu for a longer one.

April 2014- We worked for an English woman in a village called Vinograd in Bulgaria.

May 2014- We are still in Bulgaria but heading for Sarajevo and then Dubrovnik!


More to come!
