Alan digs on technology and travel and is definitely the comic in the family. He's traveled all over the globe in search of cultural experiences. He has a fantastic wife and two great children that put up with his "humor", and luckily they all love travel as well. In Aug 2012, they sold their house and all of their possessions and moved to Spain to soak up the culture. He has written a book titled Live In Spain to help those wanting to obtain a Spanish Resident Visa. He also loves to write about the funnier side of the family's adventures.
Everything you need to know about the schools in Spain
Over the course of the past 4+ years, we’ve had many parents ask us questions about how we educated our kids in Spain. Through our consulting and through this blog, many of you have submitted some excellent questions about how the Spanish Education System works. Since it’s such a popular topic I decided to write an eBook. As I was writing it, I couldn’t help exclaim:
Wow! I wish we would have had this book before we moved to Spain!
The road to obtaining a Spanish drivers license has been a rough, frustrating process. It worked out for us in the end, but now that we have our license, I figured it was worthwhile to explain what we did, the process we went through, and my general frustrations with the whole process.
It’s tough to believe that 20 years ago, Heidi and I got married on Baker Beach in San Francisco. 20 years! So obviously, this post is about our 20th wedding anniversary, and the amazing day that Heidi planned for us. Long story short…it was awesome!
Our Christmas holiday in Scotland would not be complete without a stupendous meal to go along with all of the great memories we’ve had while in Edinburgh. We were fortunate to eat at Kyloe Restaurant & Grill, and let me tell you it was definitely memorable.
After a few years of living in Spain, both Heidi and I should be further along with our Spanish. She’s actually much better than me, and I won’t even discuss how well the kids do. It’s both frustrating and a bit humbling to have them correct me when I’m saying things wrong. So, I have taken a trip to Ronda, for a week of Spanish immersion. I know we already live in Spain, but this is different and we’re partnering with Entrelenguas to help me improve my Spanish.
We’re on our way home, and this means that our Epic 8-week Summer Road Trip is coming to a close. We’ve chosen to end the trip on a good, no great note, and we’ll be doing a Where It’s Made type of post. Our journey takes us to Naturalmente Mediterraneo and Jennifer explains the process of making artisan soaps and other skincare products.
It’s another lovely tasting for us, this time French wines. This is not a typical large-scale winery, but a tiny new winery. It’s at Domaine des Amiel, and it is literally outside our front door and under our apartment. So Heidi and are ready to start enjoying Montblanc wine!
