Love this blog. It is funny, interesting, informative & written in a manner that makes us look forward to the next episode of the Wagoner's fascinating adventure! Love the fact that they were brave enough to sell their home & all their belongings and move to Spain. It is better than all of the Reality shows on TV.

I've been to Spain but I always learn something new when I read this blog. I think it's great the kids are along for the journey as well---it shows other families can do the same. Having kids doesn't mean the adventure ends! Travel on!

I love the first and second person accounts that are happening to the Wagoners. I really feel like I am there, like a little fly on the wall, taking it all in....the culture, the sights,the sounds, the smells, the people. I love the photography and descriptions that accompany it. It almost makes me want to travel internationally!
