So You’e Dating a Spaniard—Paige

Are you following me yet on Google+? If not, please head on over to Y Mucho Más’ Google + page to follow me. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Oh yes, we’re back with my famous So You’re Dating a Spaniard blog series. I haven’t been super creative lately, and I’d like to blame that on the fact that Mario and I have been watching (rewatching for me) season after season of Breaking Bad. (Spoiler alert: best series ever.) But that’s okay, because it gives me a chance to feature more of you all who are dating more Spaniards. Onward! Today I’m featuring Paige, who blogs at The Town Mouse. Let’s get started!

Paige Milli

Hi, my name is Paige and I’m a 24-year-old Texan now living in Madrid. My first taste of Spain was in 2010 when I studied abroad in Seville. After graduating college in 2011, I was awarded a Fulbright grant to teach English in Madrid. One year turned into two, and now I’ll be starting my third year in Spain. Although my life has changed a lot from days and nights spent roaming the streets of Seville, my love and curiosity for Spain keeps growing.

How did you meet your boyfriend? All the juicy details please!

Thanks for agreeing to be interviewed! So, tell us about yourself!

My name is Elizabeth Bostick, I am from Rhode Island, and I just turned 26 years old. I write a travel blog called Slightly Nomadic. I was in Spain last year, as an auxiliar de conversación in Sevilla, but I recently moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia, to teach Middle School French and Spanish. This makes for a super long distance relationship with my Spaniard!

Ah, I have had that same situation in a way! After the 2010–2011 school year, I moved home to help with a local ESL program while we maintained a LDR. How did you meet your Spaniard?

More guiris, more Spaniards, please.

Chelsea Alventosa

Hi! Introduce yourself, por favor.

Hello! I’m Chelsea Alventosa. I’m 24 years old and I’m about to begin my third year as an Auxiliar de Conversación. I studied psychology and Spanish in undergrad, and after studying abroad in Granada, I knew I absolutely had to return to Spain. Luckily, in the midst of my senior year “what-am-I-going-to-do-with-my-life?!?!” crisis, my advisor sent an email to the Spanish majors about the Auxiliares de Conversación program. I filled out the online portion of the application that night… and nine months later I was in Arcos de la Frontera (Cádiz), Spain!
