About Me

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. Please click on MyYouTube page to enjoy some of my travel videos. From the bottom of my heart. Margaret

  1. So happy that you are doing this…your posts and pictures are bringing back some great memories. I am looking forward to the next one! Love you!


  2. So glad I discovered your blog, we are going to Andalucia on our honeymoon in April. I lived in Toulouse, France for a year and would often take short trips around northern Spain (mostly Pais Vasco & Catalunya) but never got to make it down south. Whenever I spent time in Spain I always felt like I had learned the “wrong” language and should have studied Spanish instead of French!
