The one behind My World in Spanish


Travelling and learning about other people and cultures opened my mind and gave me a new perception of life. A wiser person said that a language is not only a communication tool but also a way of understanding the world. I agree with that. And that’s why now I want to share with you my language, my culture and my country, Spain, hoping I can bring you something useful for you. Maybe a new recipe you may love or a new place to discover.

PLEASE, KEEP IN MIND: English is not my native language. I write in English to help English speakers who are not fluent in Spanish, trying to provide useful information, but I keep on learning! If you find any misspellings or mistakes, please feel free to comment or send me a message here. Thank you! Gracias! 😊
