When we first moved to Spain a few years ago, we would see people flying around in the sky with parachutes (paragliding). We had no idea what it was and drove over to La Herradura to check it out. It turns out this is one of the best places for paragliding in Spain, right over the Mediterranean Sea! We watched so many of them floating in the sky and then landing on the beach.

Look who responded to our interview,“Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child”. It’s Olivia! This interview is a little unique as she and her parents have moved to La Herradura and live just minuets from us in Almuñécar, what a treat.

Greetings Everyone! We’re starting 2013 off on a strong note (good one Alan!). As I’m the guitar fan in the family, this was a particular treat for me. We took a tour of a local Master guitar maker’s shop, and it was fascinating.

Little did we know, there would be so many extra bonus features. Since the first week we arrived in September, we regularly see people here in Spain.
