Travel News

How far did I travel this week?:

On Saturday we went to Castro Candelas, a beautiful little town about one hour away from Ourense, with the bagpipe bands from our escola do gaita.

How far have I traveled on this journey so far?:

The furthest I have been so far during my year in Spain was when I went to Belfast, Northern Ireland (in the U.K.) for Christmas.

How did I get around this week?:

Since Ourense is fairly small, I almost always walk everywhere I need or want to go. The rain and cold doesn't prevent the sidewalks from being crowded here.

What was the most interesting place I visited this week?:

When I visited the town of Castro Candelas, a friend and I walked up to explore an old castle from the 1300s. It was a small medieval castle that was mostly used as a residence, and it was beautiful to explore and climb.

Other Travel News from this week:

After traveling for three weeks straight during winter break, it has been very nice to rest in Ourense this month.
