My first day in Oviedo has been a whirlwind for sure, but in the best way possible. Traveling to Oviedo went well except for a little scare in Madrid when I and two other girls (from my program that I met in Dallas) almost missed our connecting flight to Oviedo because security took so long. After we landed in Oviedo we took the bus from the airport to our AHA International office where our host parents were to pick us up.
The bus ride from the airport to Oviedo was really pretty with lush green hillsides. After my host parents picked me up, I walked around Oviedo with my host mom. The city is incredibly beautiful and historic. For a city with as much culture and history as it has, I’m surprised Oviedo isn’t more popular with tourists.
Stay tuned for more news from Oviedo!
