Hi! My name is Kaley, and%u2014yes%u2014I%u2019m an American girl living in Spain. I started this blog as a way to keep up with my family back home in Indiana, when I moved to Salamanca, Spain back in 2009. I kept it up for the 2010%u20132011 school year when I was working as an English teacher in Zamora, Spain, regaling you with humorous anecdotes from my 200 high school students studying English. I came to Spain to learn Spanish. I stayed because of a boy %u2026 We got married on July 7, 2012, and we're currently living in Madrid!
