There I am sitting at a sidewalk cafe, with the sun shining and the chatter of people around. I am enjoying my weekly meet up and coffee with my Spanish friend, which is always full of laughs and joy. Our conversation was flowing and then took an interesting and inquisitive turn about my life in Spain.
You know how we love unique places to stay, well this time we went glamping in Spain and had a blast. If you don’t know what glamping is don’t worry, we will explain it all.
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.
During our 8 week summer road trip, we spent a few days in Valencia. My mom, brother, and I went on a tour with Segway Valencia. These are my favorite tours, because we can see so much in only a few hours.
We at Wagoners Abroad see our fair share of tourist things, but what we really enjoy is finding those gems that show the interesting cultural items of a city or country. This includes not only seeing, but experiencing how the locals do things. Spending a few hours in their shoes is a fantastic way to better understand people. With the help of Paula at Devour Madrid Food Tour, she was able to show us a few of the gems in her neighborhood of Huertas.

So if you are looking for short term apartment rentals Chiang Mai, places to eat in Chiang Mai or Things to do in Chiang Mai with kids, then you will love our Family Friendly Chiang Mai guide.

First let me start by saying that we have a limited source of data for this post. It is just our opinion and Comparison of the 1 Primary School we attended in USA and the 1 Primary School we are attending in Spain. This is by no means meant to generalize for a country or even a city/district.
These are just the things we have personally experienced or observed in our own little Wagoner Bubble, with the Spain education system compared to US! 🙂
If you are living or have lived in Spain with kids in public school, please share your observations as well. Continue reading
During our summer break/vacation, we spent a week just outside of Granada, and on one of the days we ventured into town, we decided to do our first Segway Tour in Granada with Ensegway. What was it like? Was it fun? What did you see? I will answer all of those questions, but you’ll just have to keep reading.
We ventured to Lo Pagan Mar Menor, Spain for the weekend, so we could experience the healing powers of the natural Lo Pagan mud baths! Lo Pagan in the Murcia province, part of Costa Blanca Spain, is the place to go and it is easy access. It is about 3 1/2 hours from Almuñécar, 4 hours Northeast of Costa del Sol, 2 1/2 hours South of Valencia and 4 hours Southeast of Madrid.
