Once I had the keys in my pocket, I walked down the steps to the beach and felt just lucky - the impression to have done the right thing.
Ten years later, I am still convinced that moving to Spain was the right decision. Life is not easier here, but nature is everywhere and the better climate makes it possible to live outside many days of the year. Without living here permanently, I would never have imagined how rich and diverse the peninsula is. We probably would have seen the principal attractions that are mentioned in every travel guide, but never would have discovered other idyllic places off the beaten track.
Beauty is hidden everywhere in Spain. Simple beauty. You just have to open your eyes...
Those beautiful cacti were hidden behind a service station in the province of Seville ;-)
