Hello my name is Tina and I am currently residing in Barcelona, Spain where I have lived for the past eleven years. After all the hustle and bustle of Barcelona, scooters, sirens, and lively Spanish children :)! I love getting back to Oregon and truly have a new appreciation for its natural beauty and tranquility! I love to cook and find the Mediterranean diet to be truly outstanding and I now like to experiment by incorporating local ingredients into Spanish dishes. After extensive travel through out Mexico and now the many years I have spent in Spain I consider myself to be nearly fluent in Spanish, although my teenage children would disagree!! I have a degree in cultural anthropology and so I am naturally interested in and enjoy cross cultural exchanges and meeting people from different backgrounds. In my spare time I enjoy road cycling, yoga, and quiet time reading.
