Welcome to MOONINSPAIN. When I arrived in Granada as a student and found my first apartment in the Albaicín neighborhood, I knew that my life would be changed forever. In the first few years I found every possible way to support myself and my new found addiction to this country. Teaching English was my first job until I found ways to maintain myself with endeavors that I actually enjoyed. I chose to continue studying and eventually did my Master’s degree in History. I’ve worked in Educational Tourism for many years along with teaching in different capacities. I’ve spent time studying in Portugal and have also been lucky to have continued studies in Galicia and the Basque Country. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to share my adopted countries along with their cultures and cuisines with many different groups and individuals. I try to share my passion of Spain and Portugal with everyone I meet so they go home feeling that they are taking a bit of the Iberian Peninsula with them.
After being raised in an Italian American family much of my energy goes to food; cooking, eating, discovering, searching for and enjoying. At home I am as organic as possible, taking advantage of our wonderful local products here in Granada. While on the road be it for work or pleasure, I indulge in the best each country has to offer. From my very first night that I spent in Madrid in a tiny hostel up until now, I have spent hours researching tapas bars, restaurants and hotels. My favorite past time is finding hidden spots, filled with culture and authenticity. Here I plan to share my love of Spanish and Portuguese food, wine and culture as I know it. While going through these difficult times and a strain on tourism we are going to finally publish our website for our customized travel company, Iberia Up Close and Personal and I plan on working on a youtube page to share history, food, and travel with all those who choose to watch. I have added a donation page if anyone is able or interesting in helping while I work on these future endeavors.
