Cute Spanish expressions

In an effort to remember Spanish expressions or idioms, I'm going to post my favorites here.

The first two that come to mind are:

  • Camarón que se duerme, se lo lleva la corriente"--which literally means, "
  • The shrimp who falls asleep, gets carried away by the current"
  • or in English, "You snooze, you lose."

The second, which I think might be more of a Spain Spanish idiom is,

  • "Te conozco tu bacalao aunque vengas disfrazado" which translates to:
  • I know you bacalao (codfish), even though you are disguised" or in English
  • "I know what your little game is/I know your type"


  1. Lots of seafood in Spanish expressions, or is it just me? I'm kidding, these were fun.

  2. Haha, I didn't even realize! Good catch :)

  3. These a great! Thanks for sharing :-)
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Interesting blog. It would be great if you can provide more details about it. Thanks you.
