In 2016 my wife and I decided to put all our stuff in storage, move out of our place and take the whole family to Spain for 90 days. I’ve been meaning to get the photos off my phone from this trip and put em up here. I guess the time is now! I’ll be slowly adding photos to this post.

After a grueling 30 hours of traveling with two kids, we landed in Barcelona. We got to our apartment and basically slept for three days. We kept waking up at 3pm. Super hungry and nothing open around our neighborhood. There was a pretty amazing park right across the street from our apartment, but from what I can tell, that city is full of amazing nooks and crannies. I seriously think you could explore Barcelona for a year straight and always find something amazing every day.
Now, Barcelona wasn’t as friendly as the rest of Spain. My guess is that since we try to talk to everyone in our horrible Mexican-Style Spanish, people get pretty pissed since Spanish isn’t even their language. Basically, I got the vibe that everyone in that town is pretty annoyed at travelers like us.
My photos from Barca are pretty lame, I’ll look through my wife’s phone to see if there was anything worth putting up.
The next town we stay in was Muel. It’s a small town about 25 minutes west of Zaragosa. It’s slow. It’s old school. You have to plan your day around what stores you need to shop at. You’ll go get your bread first, then your meats, we could never figure out when the fish market was open. Had to make sure we got our milk on Fridays because on the weekends nothing was open. Food and drink were inexpensive. Local wine was something like 2.5 euros a bottle.
What made this town epic was that it was built around “The Virgin Spring”. In the center of the town was a spring that bubbled up into a big pool. A tiny river ran through it and waterfall came off the side of one of the cliffs. It was quite a spectacle.
This isn’t the Virgin Spring, it’s just the Virgin Water Fountain.
One Saturday we decided to walk to the next town over called Mozota. Just as sleepy :). It was starting to warm up considerably too.
Old sleepy streets of Muel.
More Photos To Come
There are quite a bit of photos to go through. I’ll update this now and then.Share This Content:
