I have a friend in Salamanca and another in Madrid. Seems like their experience has been good but they haven’t connected with the people as well as I have. It's kind of a smaller city and it’s the size I feel comfortable with.

You have the peace of living in the country and a small city, but at the same time you’re 25 minutes away from Madrid.
