Ava Abroad

Hello World

Welcome to my blog. This is my first-ever post and I’m so excited to begin this journey documenting my life while living in Bilbao.


On my way to school each morning (well, Monday through Thursday, since there’s no class Friday) I walk past the Guggenheim as I cross the bridge which connects one side of Bilbao to the other, over the ría. Rain or shine, its a lovely view.


One of the first things I wanted to do here was try the churros. They did not disappoint. I went with three friends to Café Lago in the Casco Viejo. I’m excited to try more and more places over the next four months.

Well, that’s all I have for now. Not too bad for a first post if you ask me. :)
