A handful of posts from Spain. We’ll be going returning someday…when we can speak Spanish.

Easyjet: an incredibly BAD airline

I don’t usually post negative reports like this on the website, but I am doing it as it is relevant to anyone planning on travelling in Europe using a ‘budget airline’ like Easyjet (aka Sleazyjet). Think again. Having been living in Spain now for nearly 8 months, I was really looking forwards to the first […]


English teaching podcast on front of iTunes Spain!

This is just a quick update as we’re gearing up for the launch of our first IVOZI podcast workbook series here in Barcelona, and are working flat out. We’ve recorded & edited 9 out of 10 podcasts and will be releasing a pack of 10 accompanying workbooks in the next week or so. We had […]

This is a short video compilation of clips taken at Valdevaqueros beach just outside Tarifa in Andalucia in the South of Spain – the principal destination in Europe for Kitesurfing and Windsurfing. It was a VERY windy day (force 8-9 for the sailors amongst you), which perhaps doesn’t come across as much as it should […]
