My name is Ariel and I just spent eight months working as a language assistant teacher in Madrid, Spain. This vibrant city has so many ins and outs to it that practically anyone can find their niche. I will share a bit of my personal experience in moving to Madrid, my opinions on the ups and the downs, navigation via my Madrid Barrio Guide, and I’ll share the special bars, cafes, and such that my friends and I would frequent around the city.
I hail from the west coast of the US, born in Los Angeles and eventually moving up to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2012, and trained as a yoga teacher at Freedom Yoga and Meditation in Eugene, OR.
I worked as an English teaching assistant through the program Auxiliares de Conversación, in Madrid.
All the information I have is from my personal experience and I am sharing my perspective in hopes that it is prove itself useful and interesting for you.
