I would have laughed in your face if you had told me 8 years ago that I would be teaching English in Spain and taking groups of students to the U.K and Ireland for a month each year but here I am! Prior to living in Seville I had been a construction worker!
I had always wanted to be in Spain one way or the other. I was tired of the U.K weather but I obviously wanted to be able to see my family and friends without breaking the bank. I had visited many times, albeit more touristy holidays with all the usual trappings of home comforts, English breakfasts, newspapers, English speaking staff etc. However, I began to find myself increasingly drawn to the more traditional facets of the Spanish culture with each successive visit. The food, music and generally more relaxed way of life.
