My husband and I bought a little piece of land in the Spanish Countryside. Sounds romantic, doesn’t it!? Our closest neighbors are 1km away, on either side.
This blog post is just to share a little piece of that with you.
Our lands is only a 1/4 of an acre, but it’s in the midst of a huge protected nature reserve. We aren’t allowed to build anything larger than a 16 square foot cabin – technically it is just supposed to be a tool shed for our gardening tools. My husband starting building it 4 years ago, and it’s still in process. I guess we all get too distracted just enjoying nature to actually do any work while we’re there!

Our little piece of heaven is at the bottom of a valley, along a meandering river, which turns to a creek in the summer.

When the days are warm, we love to cool off by walking up the creek and looking at rocks and searching for frogs or fish.

I have too many photos to put them all in one blog post, so I’ll just choose a few for this time and save the rest for later.
It’s always exciting to go there because the land changes so much with the seasons. In spring it’s very green and lush, but by the end of summer it’s all dry and brown except for the cactus.

My husband would like to move here full time. Even though I love it when we come here, I think I’d miss our apartment in the city with all the modern conveniences like running hot water and a flush toilet! But hey, you never know what life will bring. If you’d asked me 10 years ago if I would ever leave Canada, I would have said “no way!” and now look!
Well, that’s all for now folks. Thanks for reading….
