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

This is the beginning of my adventure to explore the length and breadth of Spain in search of a place to call home. The day-to-day routine of life in England just isn’t for me but I’m (a little bit) too old to backpack now. After 13 years of traveling the world I’m ready to put that backpack into storage but not ready to give up having fun. I feel like it’s time to grow up (a little bit) but why does that have to be boring?

I’m based in Madrid at the moment and plan to use this awesome city as a base from which to start exploring. In the hope that in between my trips the sheer array of stuff going on here will help keep me occupied.

I will be seeking the Spanish sun and all the beautiful things that go with it like sangria, sandy beaches, crystal clear sea, mountain views, delicious seafood and a slower pace of life.

So, if any of those things sound interesting or you dream of seeking the Spanish sun yourself sometime soon then please read on.

Some more about me…

  • I’m 34 years old and I grew up in Kent (just outside London) in England
  • I have a tendency to sleepwalk, a knack for unintentional puns and a serious obsession with writing lists
  • I love to visit new places and see new things but only if I’ve eaten because I get really hangry
  • A happy me would be lying on a beach, writing a list, eating chocolate with a cold G&T in hand
