Wow….time sure has been flying by! I can hardly believe the first half of 2015 has come and gone. I had the best of intentions with this blog and keeping everyone updated with our adventures, but it seems as though I have fallen a bit short. This post is the beginning of my attempt to get ‘caught up’ with what we have been up to, and then to keep this blog more current! We have been quite busy these past 4-5 months. We have hosted numerous guests, traveled to new places, and added a new (4 legged) member to our family. Here is a quick recap of the end of February – March.
In February we ended our road trip with my sister with a drive through Marbella on our way to Ronda. We arrived in Marbella at the perfect time for a sunset dinner on the Mediterranean. To say it was gorgeous would be selling it short! Ronda was nothing short of amazing as well. If you are planning a trip to Ronda, I highly suggest this Airbnb. It is in the old town, literally steps away from the bridge. Pedro, the owner, met us to let us in and show us around. We were running late and he was more than happy to accommodate us.
Before my sister had to head home, we spent a day together in Sevilla, just us girls. We had so much fun touring around the city! Here are a few of my favorite photos from that day.
We ended February with a trip to Zoo de Castellar. This zoo started as a rescue for animals that were being mistreated and sold on the black market. It has been open since 2002 and allows visitors the opportunity to get up close with the animals. Being the animal lover that I am, I was like a kid in a candy store. We were able to hold and/or pet a baby white tiger, a lemur, an owl and many others.
The baby tiger had the softest pads on his feet. As you can tell in the photos, I really got a kick out of being able to pet this little one. The broom in the photo was to distract the tiger because he was really playful!
March was by far one of my favorite months here in Spain, and we sure did squeeze a LOT into it. Nearly every weekend was filled with BBQ’s, beach trips or vacations. Some of the most beautiful sunsets I have witnessed were in March. We made a trip to Morocco and also to Germany. We said goodbye to a great friend. The weather was amazing and the experiences are ones that I will remember forever! Here are some of my favorite photos from our weekends in Chipiona.
I will share our Germany & Morocco trips with you all later this week. I have far too many amazing things to share to add them in here. I hope the first half of the year is treating you all as wonderful as it is treating us!
