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

I moved from London to Madrid in early 2017 with a plan to soak up all the Spanish culture I can while using this awesome city as a base for traveling across the country. 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.

As I traveled and explored the country this blog followed naturally. I now document everything I see and do in Spain so that I can share tips and info with others who want to seek the Spanish sun too!

If any of that sound interesting to you or if you dream of traveling or moving to Spain, 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.

A little info about me

  • My name is Perri, I’m 37 and I grew up in Kent (just outside London), South East England
  • I am the writer and content creator for Seeking the Spanish Sun
  • I met my boyfriend Brad 14 years ago while working in Mykonos, Greece
  • I prefer to travel at a slower pace and on a budget, choosing transport and accommodation wisely so that I can take short trips frequently
  • I have a tendency to sleepwalk, a knack for unintentional puns and a serious obsession with writing lists
  • I love to visit new places but only if I’ve eaten because I get really hangry
  • Making memories, sharing my experiences and inspiring others to travel are my passion
  • A happy me would be lying on a beach, writing a list, eating chocolate with a cold G&T in hand

If you are interested in working with me on a freelance project or have a potential collaboration opportunity for Seeking the Spanish Sun, please take a look at our Media Kit and get in touch. All details are on the Contact page.
