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.
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 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.
Once again, we find ourselves in Malaga, and since we’re playing tourist we opted to do something fun. Because we had so much fun in Granada, we opted to do another Segway tour. This time we worked with the great folks at Segway Malaga Experience. On this tour we were joined by an English family on holiday and we opted for the last tour of the day. It all began at 8 PM from El Puerto de Málaga (the Port of Malaga) and it was buzzing.
Singapore is a wonderful place to visit, as it is so clean and organized. That does however come at a price, so be a bit prepared for a little sticker shock, as Singapore is expensive. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the country for a little bit. We had a wonderful 48 hours in Singapore with kids. We want to share what we have learned with you so you can get ideas of things to do in Singapore with kids and a couple of options on where to stay. These are also great options if you just have 24 hours in Singapore!
Recently I was able to enjoy a girls day out, with Linda my mother in-law (Suegra), as well as my friends Maria & Cheryl (mis amigas). The four of us ventured from Almuñécar along the coast to enjoy a food tour in Málaga. I will just tell you now, it was way more than a food tour. What fun to have a day out with the girls and enjoy using all of our 5 Senses to absolutely Devour Málaga!
