Have you ever thought about living in Mijas?
For many people, dreams of moving to Spain are often filled with images of sandy beaches, sunny days and the thought of living never ending holidays.
I’m not going to say that is not reality, as in the south of Spain, that is pretty close to the truth. You only need to read our stories and look at the pictures. However, there are lots more wonderful experiences to enjoy and share.
This morning I dragged myself away from the PC to take our puppy, Mika, a six-month-old female German Shepherd, for a walk. I have to admit, I am pretty lazy and always find an excuse not to go out and discover what is in walking distance from our house. Ok, I confess, having now lived here for 18 months this is the furthest I have walked … and yes, it was only about 20 minutes away (ahem!)
These are some of the pictures I took as I ventured into our local campo and on the way back to our house ….
Sometimes, all you need to do is stop and look around you, to appreciate what you have.
We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful place. We enjoy the beaches whenever we feel like and can wander into the countryside too …
If you are a regular reader, you will know that we have lived and worked in many parts of Spain and the Spanish islands and have only been in Mijas for about 5 years now.
Have we finally found our home?
Since arriving in Mijas, we have felt so at home. We do not have enough time in the day nor enough days in the week to do everything that we want to do. We are discovering wonderful places and meeting great people all the time. Long may it continue …
So, if you are having a bad day. Stop what you are doing. Walk out your door and look around you … I look forward to hearing what you find.
PS. Sometimes it’s good to go bit crazy too … as Mika did in this video.
