A year in Santander

by Aingeal

I would like to spend a year in Santander from Sept 06 to improve my Spanish and to work. I am a primary teacher from Ireland. I am looking for suggestions re work openings and maybe somebody who would teach me Spanish in return for english lessons or for a reasonable price. I would teach or work as a teaching assistant but would also be happy to try something different. Hoblo Espanol bastante bien. Que puedo hacer en Santander.

Travel Tips for Santander

The Natural Backdrop

by DanielF

The beautiful natural backdrop is what makes the Bay of Santander so special. A range of imposing mountains offer a great panorama which is more likely to be linked to an Alpine landscape than with a marine environment and yet, the presence of the sea is so evident and overwhelming. The closest of all the mountains is called Peña Cabarga, with two tv antennas on top. It is possible to drive or walk to the summit and enjoy a spectacular view of the bay, the city and the surrounding mountains.

For its esthetic qualities, the Bay of Santander has joined the Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World, a private organisation which probably only has an anecdotic value, but includes among its members such beautiful places as San Francisco Bay in California, the Mont-Saint-Michel Bay in France or HaLong Bay in Vietnam.
