During our 3 months living in Chiang Mai with kids, we made sure we took advantage of all that the city had to offer a family. We found that things are well documented for singles and couples, but there just wasn’t much on the internet for families. So if you are looking for things to do in Chiang Mai with kids, then you will love our Family Friendly Chiang Mai guide. Continue reading
Since we’ve been in Thailand, the kids have been very curious about all of the monks we see around town. They are full of great questions, questions for which we really didn’t know the answers. Of course we would often refer to our friend Google for many of them, but they wanted more. I knew of a few Monk Chats in town, so I decided to find one that would fit our schedule. Read all about our chat and how it gave us a thirst for more learning.
Did you know you can make paper from Elephant Poo Poo? Well you can! If you are in Chiang Mai with kids, this is a fun afternoon. Look they have Free WiFi too!
As the clock stands after 22 months in Spain, we have 9 days left in the country, and this has been a bit of a rough week for the kids. Two weeks ago, it was all about the end of the school year, and both were counting down the days until the last day of class.

We asked you What Do You Want To Know or Have Us Show? And you had no trouble letting us know what was on your mind.

Can you believe we have been expats in Spain for 18 months?! It is absolutely amazing how fast the time has flown by. We are in “just normal life” here and for us Almuñécar has been the best place to live in Spain. No matter where we travel, upon return, our choice is validated with that comfortable feeling of home.
So many people think that learning Spanish is next to impossible, but we don’t agree. We have found some tools that have made a world of difference for us while living in Spain. No, we aren’t perfect and please don’t give me a written spelling test! Our goal was two-pronged: 1. To immerse the kids, so they can become fluent. 2. Parents will do our best to improve our Spanish and communicate our needs. ( I will confess I had high hopes of becoming fluent) Continue reading
