Hands-down my favorite thing about living in Spain is the ease of travel. In the past three months, I've been to Italy, Morocco, Switzerland, Turkey, and Ireland, and before I return to the States in June (so soon!), I'll have added the United Kingdom, France, and Greece to the list.
I am one ridiculously lucky girl.
As part of Southwestern Europe, Spain is in a fantastic location. The countries of Northern Europe--France, Germany, the UK, etc.--are only a short plane ride away, as are Mediterranean countries like Greece and Italy. Hop on a ferry for half an hour, and guess what? You're in Africa. Or if you feel like staying even closer to home, you can take a bus to Portugal.
It. Is. Awesome.
