Diary of a Vaughan Town Volunteer in Spain – My Free Trip to Spain* was fun to write. The title is a bit of a mouthful, I know but I had to get my keyword phrase in there.
Below is the blurb that I added to the Amazon sales page. This is much longer than I have written in the past but one of the Kindle book products I purchased mentioned that longer sales pages were more effective. We shall see.
Anyway, here’s the blurb:
Diary of a Vaughan Town Volunteer in Spain
My Free Trip to Spain*
Ever Thought of Volunteering Abroad?
Ever thought about teaching English in Spain? Would you like to know of a way to extend your holiday in Europe for free? Then a visit to Vaughan Town could be the perfect solution for you.
Dairy of a Vaughan Town Volunteer in Spain – My Free Trip to Spain* is a short diary about the time I spent as an English volunteer in Spain.
I applied to take part in the Vaughan Town Experience. This is a volunteer programme, set up by a Spanish based language school called Vaughan Systems. Native English speakers are invited to spend a week at a holiday destination just outside Madrid. The point is to provide English conversation to the Spanish participants in return for free bed and board.
Free Bed & Board in Spain? – Sounds Dodgy Right?
That’s exactly what I thought at first. I wanted to visit Madrid anyway so I just decided to go with the flow and apply for a volunteer position at Vaughan Town.
My application was accepted and my trip was planned for one week in June 2013. I decided to keep a diary so that I could look back and remember my time there.
This is my personal account of my experience during my trip to Madrid and the week I spent at the hotel El Rancho with 15 Anglos and 15 Spanish students.
In This Diary You Will Discover
- The Type of work schedule involved for the English volunteer abroad (psst – I wouldn’t call talking work)
- A short review of a great hostel in Madrid- perfect for those extending their holiday afterwards
- What a phrasal verb is – you will learn more English grammar than you thought possible
- Quality dining, Vaughan Town style – the quality and quantity of the food served leaves no need for snacking
- Gin and Tonics, Spanish style – we are not talking about a thimble full of alcohol here, no sir!
My Free Trip to Spain*
* Nothing in life is 100% free. The only costs I incurred were my return flight to Madrid and the accommodation I needed before and after the course.
PLEASE NOTE: I am in no way affiliated with Vaughan Systems. This is all about me! Enjoy.
At just under 15,000 words, this bijou diary will give you a snapshot of what you could possibly experience if you decide to take a chance on signing up as an English volunteer for Vaughan Town in Spain.

I am really happy that it is finally done and dusted. I had to wait ages for the cover. This is the second incarnation. The first was not to my liking. I had asked for a couple tweaks but the designer just disappeared so I commissioned another and got much better results. (I finally heard from the first person – one week later).
Anyway, I can move on to the next project now
