It’s that time of year again and we are starting to plot and plan to create the best European Christmas vacation. This time we are looking for a little input from you as well. We will share our circumstances and requirements with you, as well as what is currently on the table for choices. Feel free to comment on our choices or add more to the list for us!
For our staycation on the Costa Tropical, there is no shortage of Almuñécar summer activities to choose from. Yep, we are staying local for the summer and enjoying all of the normal summer fun, with a mask!
Living and driving in Spain for the past six years has turned us into road warriors and of course driving in Spain gurus. We have purchased 2 cars, sold one car and we are well above the count of 20 when it comes to car rentals cars in Spain. For almost a year, we rented cars regularly, when we didn’t own a car. We have also flown to other parts of Spain and then rented a car for our vacation. Not to mention the many visitors and blog readers we have helped with renting a car in Spain. So I guess we do have a bit of experience on the matter. Let’s cover the most frequently asked questions for your car rental Spain.
Each Autumn our consulting and blogging takes a little siesta, so Alan and I take full advantage of this time to work on projects and improve our Spanish. This time we tried experiential learning Spanish mixed with some traditional classroom time. Yep, we are taking the slow road to fluency, but at least we are still on that road! To top it all off, we know we are better than we were last year!
When we travel there are certain “go-to” activities we gravitate towards. Exploring a new city with a Hop on Hop off Bus (HoHo Bus), is one of those things for us. It is wonderful to do with kids and takes you right where you need to go. Keep on reading to see where we’ve enjoyed the HoHo Bus on our family travel adventures.
Greece has been on our list of countries to visit for many years and we finally made a trip! We spent 4 days in Athens with teens, followed by 3 days at a beach resort in Marathon. Here is our travel guide for you.
If you want to get a taste of Athens, then create your own Athens Food Tour! You won’t have to travel far to get a taste of everything Athens has to offer. We didn’t have the time for an organized food tour this trip, so we decided to create our own and try things along the way.
Just like any other holiday in a big city, we enjoyed the hop on hop off Athens! This time we had the 3-day pass and used it every day!
While we were staying near Florence Italy, for the upcoming week we had scheduled a tour to see some Pagani supercars as well as the Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese Dairy in Modena. We were looking for some last-minute accommodation near Modena, Italy to ensure we had easy access to the tour locations.
