Nearly Two Years Living In Spain – Thoughts From Anya and Lars

Nearly two years living in Spain and it’s time for us to move on to our new adventures.  We had a rough time the last couple of weeks and it was a very emotional time for us all.  The kids finished school, Lars graduated from 6th grade and it was all really hitting home that we were leaving.  We of course shared with you a few things we will miss, and that we prefer to say “see ya later” rather than goodbye.  Our time wouldn’t be complete without a final “Living in Spain” video interview with Anya and Lars.

Anya & Lars and a lot of Paella Nearly two years living in Spain, hear what Lars and Anya think about our adventures. What was public Spanish school like for them? Do they fit in? Read more on

Nearly Two Years Living In Spain

You will notice the kids are a bit tired and drained and a little bit somber.  We have been staying up faithfully until about 1 or 2 am nearly every night for the last week, with parties, dinners or the world cup.  This interview took place the morning after we left Almuñécar and just a few hours before our flight to Amsterdam.  We didn’t speak Spanish this time, as they were just very tired.  Perhaps we can capture more of that later for you.

  1. hi guys, really lovely to see your interviews. what a great idea! this has come round so fast. all have a fabulous adventure as we know you will. look after oneanother. we are in smallridge near axminster in devon for a while longer. probably another year. i bought a boat which we intend to strip out and refurbish as a live aboard and spend a year or two exploring the french canal system. its a plan in progress. would love to see you all again sometime. who knows where?. loads of love and best wishes to you all. you are all remembered with huge fondness. mike and mags. xxxx

    • Oh Mike and Mags! We are so thrilled to hear from you and do think of you often. We are having a blast in the Netherlands, Belgium and a little bit of France right now. We are flying to Southeast Asia in about 10 days from Sweden. We should be in SEAsia for a year or so, perhaps you will make it over for a brief holiday? If not, we will track you down, somewhere in this world. So happy you are doing well and can’t wait to see your next dream come true. Hugs to you both.

Come on and tell us what you think!
