Hi! Welcome to A Spoonful of TLCDSC_0989

I’m Tamara.

I’m a post-graduate trying to figure out a path, but for now….I am an expat, a traveler, a wanderer, and most certainly, I am a little bit lost.  If you’re here, reading this, it’s because you want to learn more about me.  Well, what can I say?

I moved to Madrid, Spain for a year-long adventure in teaching English as an assistant when I was 24.  I had no idea that I would fall in love with the country and the culture. get bitten by the travel bug, and still be here in Spain more than two years later (now 26 years old).  I have spent these years traveling (see my travel page), working a few different jobs, making friends, and trying to figure out what to do and where to go next.  

I live in the center of Madrid, so I spend a lot of time trying new places, going for walks, meeting friends for tapas (obviously), spending time with my boyfriend- Luis, and living a good life.  I also like to run, do Body Combat, cook, bake, read, and work on my little side hustle- an online bakery called Bruja’s Bakery.  Check it out πŸ˜‰

 This blog has been many things during the time that I have had it, but at this moment, it is a place to record my journey- how I am figuring out life abroad, what my day-to-day is like, a place to record my travels around Europe, my food, my workouts (sometimes), and my life in general.

Thanks for following my journey!DSC_0858

  1. I have never put peaches with peanut butter. I must try this!!!
    And I’m currently vegan but I am really struggling right now with feeling satisfied and full so I’m considering being “mostly vegan but always vegetarian” like you.
    I’m looking forward to blog stalking you πŸ˜›

    1. It is soooo good! Peanut butter, peaches and strawberries is even better, but I thought that would be a really long name…haha

      When I eat a vegan diet all day, I find myself snacking a lotttt more (which isn’t bad), but some days it just isn’t convenient, ya know?

      and i will definitely be blog stalking you as well πŸ™‚

  2. You pretty much sound just like me.. “def. vegetarian, mostly vegan, but I don’t label my diet.”
    Look forward to reading more! Congrats on finishing your first year of college.
