Welcome to our Remember Series, where a section of my Life posts will focus on some of our past adventures. Since starting this blog, I have spent a lot of time pouring over old photos. We are very fortunate to have already experienced some amazing travels as a family – as well as quite a few from before Steve and I met each other. This series is my attempt to share with you, our readers, some of our past adventures and to remind ourselves to never give up exploring.
Our adventures in Spain started many years ago, before Steve and I knew each other. Steve moved from England to Ibiza, a small island in the Mediterranean in the late 1990’s. I found myself, quite by accident, arriving on Ibiza (an island I didn’t even know existed) from Canada in 2006. Our meeting was also by accident, but it wasn’t until my return to Spain in 2010 that we fell in love.
Ibiza is an amazing place with blue waters and white sand beaches, Phoenician ruins and excellent sangria. With over 300 days of sunshine per year, Ibiza is the perfect place for outdoor activities. We have enjoyed hiking, biking, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving and fishing. Though perhaps the most enjoyable activity is simply to sit at one of the numerous cafes with a cortado, cerveza or glass of vino in hand watching a spectacular sunset.
Leaving Ibiza after so many years and so many memories was incredibly hard, but we both knew that it was time to write another chapter in our lives. We wanted to explore new horizons, to experience new adventures while our children were young. Returning to Ibiza after a 3 year hiatus, was both nostalgic and heartbreaking. With the economic climate changing, it was time for us to make a move, BUT first… why not take a little detour? Stay tuned for our next installment in our Remember series as we venture off Ibiza into mainland Spain.
