About

Welcome to Seeking the Spanish Sun, a travel blog exploring Spain!

I’m following my dream of living in Spain and I’m currently exploring the country in search of a place to call home. The day-to-day routine of life in England just wasn’t for me and I feel too old to backpack now.

After 14 years of traveling the world and being a bit of a Nomad, I feel ready to put my backpack into storage but not ready to give up having fun. I guess it’s time to grow up and buy a house but why does that have to be boring?

Get all the information you need to visit Spain from this awesome travel blog

I moved from London to Madrid in early 2017 with the plan to soak up all the Spanish culture I can while using this awesome city as a base for traveling across Spain. I came here seeking the Spanish sun and all the beautiful things that go with it like sandy beaches, crystal clear sea, mountain views, delicious seafood and a slower pace of life.

So, if any of those things sound interesting to you or you dream of Seeking the Spanish Sun too, then please read our Spain travel guides and follow my adventures.

To find out more about my travel history and why I started a travel blog check out my first blog post – I just couldn’t settle.
