San Cristobal Beach Almuñécar Summer Day Timelapse

For 6 years we have been spoiled with the view from our terrace.  Of course along the way we have shared that view via video and photos with you.  Today we have somewhat of a special treat to share.  Something we’ve been saying we were going to do for years and now we’ve done it!  Well, I asked Alan to set it all up and he did it!  Today you get to see what we see!  With nearly 20 hours of our view in just minutes of video experience a busy summer’s day, from sunrise to sunset!

This is more than just a seaview or beachview, San Cristobal Beach in Almunecar is Alive! Each and every day there's something to look at, including the shipping lanes in the distance, the currents and waves in the sea, the swimmers, boaters and scuba divers, the beach, the paseo and sunrise over our town.  It's all buzzing and active throughout the day and night.

Careful What You Wish For – Raising Kids In Spain

It recently hit home for me that our kids have their own lives, which we parents don’t really know much about.  Yes, we are raising kids in Spain, but does that make a difference?  Would our teens and our choices have been similar if we weren’t in Spain?  We had a list of goals when moving to Spain and one of those was to ensure the kids were able to adapt to change.  Now I’m wondering if I need the lesson on adapting to change.

Comparison of USA and Spain Cost Of Living (Show me the money $)

We are often asked about our Spain cost of living compared to the USA.  You know, the cost of daily life, to just live and do what you want to do.  This was a question that came to us in our post – What Do You Want To Know or Have Us Show?

Before moving to Spain, we thought that the cost of living in Europe was going to be expensive.  Of course we had our doubts that we would be able to live on the budget we set for our family of 4.  We made it happen and with the right choices you can too.

Spring Cleaning Comparison Of USA and Spain

Easter has passed, which marks the beginning of my annual Spring cleaning!  Not to worry, I do clean more than just once a year (usually).  Yes, it is time to get rid of those little dust bunnies collecting under the bed, behind the dresser, and in the corner.  As well as the hand prints on the outside of the sliding glass door.  We can say good-bye to the cobwebs, which have formed on the ceilings and in those unused corners of the home.  And my favorite is, so long to the dust build up on the ceiling fans and base boards.

A Roman Bridge – Exploring In Our Own Backyard

Now that we have been back in Spain for 8 months, yes I said 8 months!  I can’t believe how fast time is flying by.  Anyway, now that we have been back, I am the one in the family with the itchy feet to explore, discover and move about.  The rest of the family can give or take it at this point.  Today happens to be Leap Day, but also a school holiday for the kids.  With determination and a little of “We are all going”, we went to find the Roman Bridge in town.

Adventures With Anya – I Go Paragliding In Spain!

When we first moved to Spain a few years ago, we would see people flying around in the sky with parachutes (paragliding).  We had no idea what it was and drove over to La Herradura to check it out.  It turns out this is one of the best places for paragliding in Spain, right over the Mediterranean Sea!  We watched so many of them floating in the sky and then landing on the beach.  I knew I wanted to try it one day, as I love to try anything that is full of adventure.
