Big news today as Spain Buddy reaches 1000 posts. Launched in September 2012, Spain Buddy has been bringing you articles on many aspects of Spain including news, recipes, Spanish lessons and much more!
We try to keep the website as varied as possible, and we try to respond when you ask us for something in particular. At least one new item goes live on the website every single day… whether that is a news story, a recipe, an article, an event or a new business listing. And of course we are constantly working hard behind the scenes to keep things running as smoothly as possible for you, our readers.
