  • Andalucía - Exploring Southern Spain 1 day ago Andalucía Earlier this year, we took a trip to the south of Spain, to visit Andalucía. This region is responsible for many of the stereotypes associated with Spain. E.g., flamenco, bullfighting, and the Moorish influenced architecture (it was under Moorish rule from the 8th-15th centuries). As we...
  • Our Favorite Methods To Learn Spanish 3 months ago We get asked a lot – how’s your Spanish? Which is inevitably followed by, how are you learning? So, we thought we’d give an update on our progress, our experiences, and share our favorite methods to learn Spanish. We arrived in Spain in July of 2016, and began our journey to learn Spanish...
  • 4 Days in Madrid & Toledo 4 months ago Last weekend was the Feast of the Immaculate Conception holiday in Spain, and we took advantage of the 4-day weekend to take a quick trip to Madrid and Toledo. Thanks to the AVE high speed train, which goes up to 310 kph (192 mph), we made it from Valencia to Madrid in under 2 hours. Madrid...
  • Activities in Valencia For Kids 5 months ago Is Valencia a good city for kids? You bet it is. The people of Valencia seem to adore children, and they’re welcome everywhere. There are lots of kid-friendly activities in Valencia, and we’re constantly exploring and discovering what our 9-year-old son and his friends like and keeping a list...
  • Horchata de Valencia (the original) 7 months ago I’ve been walking the streets of Valencia for a few months now and frequently come across little stands selling orxata de València or horchata de Valencia (the former being Catalano/Valenciano and the later Spanish (Castellano) both pronounced or-CHA-ta).

These days I find myself thinking about what is goodness and courage and how to live a meaningful life. This blog resonates with my mindset. Having been an expat myself — I lived in London for over a decade and have recently returned to Valencia— , I appreciate the value of this blog even more. Heather and Eddie's story is not useful only for those of you who are thinking about an adventure in Spain but also for us locals. We Spaniards take for granted many things: the warmth weather, the healthy food, the colourful traditions, the ancient history, the hidden gems in our cities, the beauty of our language, the wealth of resources and leisure activities … Reading this blog is helping me to pause and appreciate our community and my identity. I met Heather and Eddie in a language exchange here in Valencia. They are genuinely nice people. Please keep telling us about your journey! Lots of Love.
