Dreaming Of A Family Gap Year In Spain?

Dreaming of something different?  Perhaps a family gap year in Spain is what you need?  Does this sound like you?

There you are living a wonderful life with both parents working and the kids are in school.  Your afternoons and evenings are spent running around from activity to event and driving from one location to another.  Sometimes you need to have a quick meal out, as there just isn’t enough time to cook a meal at home.  Once you arrive home, it is time to do a bit of cleaning, have the kids finish their homework, and have a little bit of time together as a family.  Time to go to bed and start it all again tomorrow.
