Thanks for dropping by the blog today—it means a lot that you’re reading what I’ve published here. I hope you’ve learned something new or been inspired to visit a new destination after spending time on my blog.

What’s this blog all about?

I flipped the switch on this blog back in July 2012, when I was accepted to move to Spain to teach English to public elementary school students.

This blog began as a way to share my experience working as a language assistant and living abroad in Spain. A Texan in Spain would expand to include engaging travelogues illuminated by my background in history, linguistics, and photography. I hope the bulk of my blog’s archives continues to inspire others to visit off-the-radar destinations in Spain, especially Jaén province in Andalucía and the entire region of Galicia.

It’s been years, though, since I was a foreigner in Spain. Nowadays, I call Phoenix, Arizona, home: me and millions of others who moved to this oasis in the desert from outside the state. During the workweek, I dedicate my time to non-profit fundraising, but I spend many of my weekends and vacations hiking or roadtripping across Arizona.

My current goal with this blog is to help newcomers who move here to explore and understand all that Arizona and the greater Southwest have to offer, with a special focus on historical sites and hiking routes.
