Being an auxiliar (or language assistant) in Europe, I have an amazing opportunity to live in Spain, experience a new culture, learn a new language (or two) and travel around Europe. But it is not easy to afford travel as an auxiliar. We don’t receive lot of money and depending on which city you’re in and your accommodations, it’s even less. So if you’re considering going to Spain or another European country to teach English, read to see how to afford travel as an auxiliar.
Traveling is amazing and it isn’t as expensive as many people think. One of the biggest expenses for those traveling is accommodations. To save on that, you can opt to stay in hostels instead of hotels. As much as I love hostels for allowing me the opportunity to see the world, there are some things I hate about hostels.

This is such a weird time for the world, isn’t it? According to WHO, the Coronavirus is now considered a pandemic. Thus, what many people thought was just a problem in Asia and Europe, now affects the entire world in some way. If you’ve read some of my previous blog posts, you would know that I’m currently living in Europe. It’s been a strange situation trying to navigate living in Europe during this time. As of when I’m writing this post, Spain is one of the countries seeing the most rapid growth of cases of the coronavirus in Europe behind Italy and France.
In this post, I’m going to talk about what it’s been like for me living in Europe during the COVID-19 outbreak.
As I’ve been living in Europe for the past several months, I’ve been able to travel. Thus far, I’ve visited a few cities in Spain as well as Italy, France, the Czech Republic and Poland. And I’m hoping to visit a few more countries before heading back to the States for the summer. If all goes well, I’ll be back in Europe next year with the chance to visit more countries. Thus, I’ve put together my list of cities I am hoping to visit in Europe within the next year to year and a half.
