The final stop of our 3-week Spain adventure was to the beach town of Benidorm, where some of my family lives. My kids and I have been visiting the Spanish beach yearly for the last decade, so I’m sure you can understand their joy to hear that our last stop was going to be “their […]
One of my favorite stops in our Spain road trip was the city of Barcelona. While my husband and I had visited this beautiful city in the past, this time around we were excited to explore Barcelona with our Kids.
