Can you believe we’ve been living in Spain for 25 years?
Family Life in Spain is a whirlwind of excitement, adventure and learning experiences touched with the odd dash of frustration. It can easily be compared to a fairground ride … the enormous roller coaster that is life!
What you have to decide is whether you will be shrieking with laughter or screaming in fear.
Fasten your seat belts and let’s make this the ride of your life!
We have been living in Spain for 25 years and we are still learning, discovering and are totally excited by our findings about this colourful world of:
- beautiful blue skies,
- endless sunshine,
- miles of sandy beaches,
- rolling green hills,
- snow topped mountains,
- noisy and vibrant ferias and festivals
- and not forgetting, the deliciously fresh and healthy food.
Take your time to have a good read through our website for an idea of the amazing range of activities and options Spain offers individuals, couples and families with children of all ages. No matter what the weather (yes, believe it or not, we do get have bad weather days and sometimes even weeks!), you will find plenty to keep you busy.
If you are thinking about moving to Southern Spain, have a look at our website www.MoveToMalaga.com for lots of practical advice and tips that will save you hours, days and even months of time and frustration.
We share our experiences of the good, the bad and the sometimes down right ugly experiences of life in Spain. Blissful beach holidays, stunning day trips to Malaga’s not so well known lake district, experiences and frustrations of Spanish schools and the infamously frustrating and hair-pulling “burro” system that is Spanish bureaucracy … you have been warned!
When people ask about where we live and what we do, they often refer to us as “lucky”.
I hear myself saying “we’re really lucky because…” when talking about our children, our life and what we do. Yet, in all honesty, “luck” is only a very tiny part of the big truth. We never take what we have for granted.
Enjoying family life in Spain may appear to be a dream for many people, but the reality is often very different. However, if you are prepared to put the effort in the results can be better than you could ever have imagined.
In Spain, family comes first. Children are not only seen but also heard and welcomed with loving, open arms. Children stay children for longer. When we chose to have children, we chose to change our lives. Living here allows us to do this. Would we call that “luck”? Well, maybe!
So, whether you are also lucky to be living in Spain, are thinking about moving over or are simply visiting, we hope you love it as much as we do.
¡Hasta pronto, amigos!
