Visiting Barcelona With Kids?

Visiting cities like Barcelona, which are filled with extreme art and culture with kids can be really exhausting. Kids typically do not always find visiting museums, churches, or architecturally advanced structures amusing and hence, can be hard to please.  Therefore, if you’re travelling to this magnificent city with children, it is important to plan ahead, places, or attractions which will be fun for them.  We think this is one of the friendliest cities on earth, so getting around with kids should be not so difficult!

What’s That On San Cristobal Beach? – Almuñécar, Spain

Almuñécar has a beautiful paseo along the beach and we especially love the one near our home along Playa San Cristobal.  The kids and I were out for a walk and a swim the other day and noticed something just beside the paseo in the sand.  It was big, scary and an interesting sight for Almuñécar.  It was a big crocodile.

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…And A Little Creativity!

Alan and I have been married for nearly 17 years and during that time we have always lived quite a distance from our families.  Not to mention that our families are spread out all over the USA, so we have spent many holidays on our own, on the road, or with family coming to us.  Every Christmas for us has been unique and so cherished no matter where we were located.  To us, Christmas Tradition is about good quality family time, whether it is just the 4 of us or with a group of 20. Part of that tradition is having a Christmas Tree! Continue reading

Top Notch Service, Location and History – Apartamentos Alberca, Córdoba

We have been living in Spain for 15 months and still had yet to see the Mesquite in Córdoba, so we planned a last-minute weekend getaway.  We knew this was a great town to park the car and enjoy the weekend by foot, but it was time to find that perfect place to rest at night.  We prefer to book an apartment, so we can have a little extra space as well as a kitchen.  This really saves on spending too much eating out and it is nice to have cold drinks handy.  We also wanted to be sure we were in the old town area, so we wouldn’t need to use the car.  After scouring the internet, we happened upon the Apartamentos Alberca and it looked like a gem.  Reservations were made and we were on our way.
