Wagoners Abroad Travel Blog Readers In Almuñécar!

This is our 400th Blog post!

So, I was thinking it’s the perfect time to celebrate You!

When planning our move to Spain nearly 2 years ago, we envisioned meeting new people and making new friends in our town.  We started our travel blog to keep family and friends informed of our adventures and experiences.  After 20 months in Spain, we have done just that.  We have made some fantastic friends here in Almuñécar, but there was something we didn’t expect.  We had no clue that by becoming a travel blogger, we would become friends with traveling families from all over the world, and actually meet some of them in person too.

Pops Of Color In Southern Spain – Almuñécar

We’ve had a very busy, yet wonderful past couple of weeks.  We will tell you all about it soon and you’ve already seen a little about our trip to Budapest on the blog.  We can’t wait to return someday, as it was a beautiful city.  We’ve been enjoying our time with family and friends visiting (Grandma Linda and Marg) and today was our first day waking up without them here.

The Silliest Things Excite Us!

Monday we spotted cake mix and frosting at our Mercadona (Betty Crocker). It is crazy expensive, but it is here and we love ya Betty!

Today I found corn meal at Al Campo! Cheap too, just 1€25.  Yeah, now we can make corn bread and chili.

Now they start to get some things we miss, when we are scootin’ out of the country in a few months.

What ‘s In The Water? Something Exciting!

My day started as a pretty typical day.  I was up too late writing blog posts and up far too early, this time before even a hint of sunrise.  As usual I started by responding to email and blog comments and then I noticed the one sole star out in the dark sky.  I started to get my camera to take a photo.  You see, my Mom loves these types of moments and I wanted to capture it to share with her.  Just as I was changing the settings on the camera, the sun started to give signs that it was coming.  Continue reading

Here Comes The Sun!

April 3 2014 Almunecar SunriseGood morning everyone. Another spectacular sunrise in Almuñecar this morning.  We had a storm blow through yesterday and today we get the last of the clouds as the sun rises.  There is still a bit of rain falling to blur the photo a bit.  Doesn’t the sun make it appear that hillside is on fire?

Come Along With Me To The Bank – Photo Walk

Most often it’s the simple things that I enjoy most about our town.  I needed to run to the bank, which is on the other side of town.  It is a mile or two from our house, so we often just drive over and get the banking done.  Not on this day, as the weather is a big motivator for me to get out and walk.  Spring has arrived and it was another gorgeous day here in Almuñécar to be out and about.

ESO – Secondary School In Spain

Wow, this is my first post in a while! I’ve got a good excuse:

SCHOOL

Speaking of school, I recently went on a field trip with my class to “La Antigua Sexi”. It’s a secondary school for grades 7-12, also known as an instituto. It looks nothing like an “American High school.”, more  like a Spanish street. Continue reading

5 Days of Celebration In Almuñécar – Día de Andalucía and Carnaval 2014

Let me just start by saying “I love our Spanish town of Almuñécar”.  As with most places in Spain, there is always something to celebrate and this weekend was no exception.  The town is full of tourists and there is an energy we just love.  For the past 5 days, we have been partaking in parades, parties, friends and tourist sites.  I will just warn you, I am wiped out, so be prepared for me to just ramble on in this post.
