What are pintxos?

Well, perhaps you’ve heard of them by the name pinchos, or tapas. While pintxos, pinchos, and tapas are all different in name, they’re arguably similar in concept: they’re all tiny portions of delicious food. The Basque Country is renown for their pintxos, which can be anything from a squid croquette to a mushroom risotto. In San Sebastian, pintxos are always paid for. This is not the case in other parts of Spain. For instance, Salamanca offers free pinchos that tend to be varied meats on bread. On the other hand, Madrid typically offers tapas that can range from padron peppers to Spanish omelette and can be free or paid.

Northern Spain: Thermal Baths and the Best Octopus in the World

People often spend months planning travel. They’ll research cities, read through brochures, formulate a fool-proof itinerary, book everything. However, if there’s anything I learned from my trip to the north of Spain with my friend Mareike, it’s the beauty of flexibility. The only real planning we did in advance was meet up for a coffee the week before we left while looking at a map of Spain and creating a makeshift order of cities we wanted to visit. We booked our first five-hour bus from Salamanca, where we lived at the time, to our first destination: Ourense!

Salamanca: My Timeless Home

Of course , this was not my first time living in a foreign country, far away from the comfort of living with my mother and sister, but there was an extra excitement that kept me waiting,  since I saw my name on the list of students accepted to the University of Salamanca until I took the bus from Madrid to Salamanca.

Andrea Chirinos

Salamanca: The Golden City

When I found out I was going to be studying in Salamanca, I had no idea where I was going. All I knew was that it was in Spain and I was stoked to finally be studying abroad. Before living in Salamanca, whenever I thought of Spain, Barcelona and Madrid were the cities that instantly came to mind. Now, Salamanca is my home away from how where I met incredible people and discovered the beauty of Spain culture.
