The moves have ceased! (We hope) – Getting Settled in Spain

The move is on

Our kids were born and raised in the same house in North Carolina until May 2012. 8 moves in 4 months:

  1. At that time we sold our home and moved into a temporary apartment in NC for 3 months, while waiting to get everything in order to move to Spain.
  2. We arrived in Barcelona Spain, each having a suitcase a large carry on back pack and a small day back pack. We stayed at a hotel for 2 nights and had to lug everything in from the car. As you will see, we did a rinse and repeat of this several times.
  3. Next we were off to Valencia. We stayed the first 2 nights in the outskirts of the city in a hotel. This way we were close to the small town of Buñol for La Tomatina.
  4. We then moved into Valencia city center and had a 1 bedroom apartment for 2 nights.
  5. Then the big drive to Almuñécar. Here we had a sea front 2 bedroom apartment, but we only lasted one night with no AC.
  6. The unplanned move back to a hotel for 2 nights occurred here. This allowed us time to locate another short-term apartment, while really searching for a long-term rental.
  7. Here we go again. Off to yet another place. This time it was for 10 nights! It almost felt like we could unpack, but we didn’t really.
  8. The final move (we hope) was to our long-term rental on September 14th. We had to move out of the short-term rental at 10am and we couldn’t move into our long-term rental until 8pm.  The kids went to school and us parents I tooled around all over the place. We did take a few pictures, which are attached. We will save the pictures of Old Town for another posting.
