My Name is Elena Zurriaga. I am a “native” from Valencia (I was born in Germany, but came back to the city when I was 6 months). In the past, I’ve been an Expat myself, as I lived in UK for 9 years.

Perhaps, that’s why in the Project I’ve just started, there’s a small section that involves, among other aspects, making life easier to Expats in Spain. ( “Lost in Translation”

Through this Blog I would love to share with you some of my experiences, personal and professional, that might be of your interest, as well as, they might make you enjoy your experience while living here.

Happy reading!
