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.
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!
The Fantasticable was a kid favorite! Flying high in the French Alps, above the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse, to Châtel. The kids soared at almost 100 km/h (60 mph) and 240 meters above ground (790 feet). Are we nuts for letting our kids do this?
I’m exhausted. It’s the good kind though. Lars is also tired, and yes, it’s also the good kind. We just spent an entire day together doing something we’ve never done before, and we had an absolute blast! What did we do? We we rocked at downhill mountain biking Morzine.
Okay maybe Rioja wine isn’t your thing, but we absolutely love it and were very excited to be staying near Logroño Spain for the week. This was now the start of week 5 of our epic 8 week road trip around Spain & France. Okay for all of you in the USA, this is like staying in Napa Valley California or Champagne France! It’s wine country, and we had no trouble finding opportunities to drink wine.
We had 1 week to spend in La Rioja Spain and there was one Must Do while we were there. We needed to visit Marques de Riscal! I have seen photos of this winery over the years and I just had to see it in person. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
Three Wagoners walk into the ocean with surfboards, 1 gets up, 1 goes down, and the other went weeee weeee weeee all day long. We are just having too much fun on our 8 week summer road trip through Spain & France. This time we are surfing in Santander. Well, 3 of the Wagoners are.
As we’re traveling on our 8-week road trip throughout northern Spain, we figured that it was time to do some river activity. We’re in the lovely Asturias region of Spain in the town of Arriondas. And our activity is (drum roll)…canoeing on the Sella river. The folks at Trip4Real scheduled our trip, and put us in contact with a great local company, Frontera Verde.
