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 →
Frigiliana Spain – A small white village located on the Eastern edge of the Malaga Province, in Andalucia. Just 6 km in the hills above Nerja and about 45 minutes from the Malaga Airport. This is a perfect place for an afternoon away to explore a quaint Spanish Village. Today we are going to take you on a “Photo Walk” of Calle Real (the main street in the Old part of town). This is the well-preserved part of the village, with a Moorish origin.
We are often asked about our Spain cost of living compared to the USA. You know, the cost of daily life, to just live and do what you want to do. This was a question that came to us in our post – What Do You Want To Know or Have Us Show?
Before moving to Spain, we thought that the cost of living in Europe was going to be expensive. Of course we had our doubts that we would be able to live on the budget we set for our family of 4. We made it happen and with the right choices you can too.
I know you are curious about the cost of things in Spain, as that is a popular question we are often asked. I thought we would show you a little here an there about our Spain food costs. If you have any other curiosities, feel free to ask us and we will be glad to share with you. Continue reading →
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!
Are you tired of the winter weather? Then some nice all-inclusive holidays to Spain could be just what you need. The famous Costa del Sol offers everything that you and your family need for the perfect vacation in the beautiful Spain. Are you ready to pack your bags and spend some time in one of the spectacular hotels of the Holiday Village Costa del Sol?
Today we say Hasta Luego to our wonderful town of Almuñécar, our beautiful view from the terrace, the sounds and smell of the sea, and good friends. As we drove up and over the hill, we looked over for our final birds-eye view of the town. My eyes instantly welled-up and my sunglasses caught the puddles streaming down my cheeks. Never did I think that our hearts would be touched so much by our time in Spain and the people we met along the way. After many tearful goodbyes this week, we left Almuñécar this morning. Thank goodness for the tissues we had handy in the car!
Of course seafood is in abundance when living along the Mediterranean Sea. Each summer little Barbacoa (Barbecue) stands pop up along the beach and many of the “summer only” restaurants light up their barbacoa too. Last summer, Lars kept asking if he could try the sardines, that were just about every 100 yards along the beach. Because they were plentiful, I kept telling him we would do it later. Well in mid-September, we finally went to the beach so Lars could sample the ever so popular Grilled Sardines on a skewer.
I am seaside, it’s rather warm outside, bordering on hot, and yet I am being refreshed. It is at this moment that I recognize that a great injustice has been done. There is no Nobel Prize for cooking, and by extension, the person who invented ice cream missed out on the accolades and recognition deserving of such a huge discovery. Therefore, it is with great reverence that I advise you to seek out this ice cream shop, as we think it’s the best in Almuñécar!
