My Dad's House in Spain

Hola Senioras, today I want to share something a little different with all of you. My Dad's house in Spain. Most of you probably don't know that I am born and raised in Germany. 
Well, Spain is a huge vacation spot for Europeans. My Dad purchased a second home there when I was a little girl so me and my brother grew up spending our summers there.
 
Since I moved half-way across the world as an adult, I don't get to go every summer anymore...boooohooo


 I love being able to take our little Robbie there every couple of years, hopefully he can make many more memories there as he is growing up. He loves it, as you can see here..lol
 My Dad even built him a sandbox 




 




 

I hope you enjoyed todays home tour in Espana..... Hasta la vista Ladies
Christine

  6. What a beautiful home!!! You are so lucky to have a dad that lives there. What a treat that must be to go there to visit him. You are a well rounded gal to have grown up in Germany and spend summers in Spain and now live in the U.S!

  12. Oh how fun! We traveled to Spain last year, Costa del Sol & many other wonderful places, and fell in love with the white cottage homes. We also realized early on in our vacay, that most of the people visiting were Europeans. We even met and visited with a couple over lunch, who had purchased a home there when there children were young. They were from Norway, and visited their Spanish home a couple of times a year. Too bad you can't go more often!

  24. Good Morning Christine, I live in England and do you know I have never visited Spain. It was lovely of your father to share his home and what beautiful gardens. I love the photo of your son jumping in the pool. I have two daughters who are grown now. I used to live in Cyprus and I have a similar type of photograph of Danielle and Natasha jumping into a pool and loving every minute. There is nothing like sunshine, a pool and a sandbox to keep a little one happy.
    I have enjoyed my visit Christine and I have become a new follower.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! where you will be made most welcome.
    Best Wishes to you from England.

  26. We have something in common! Although I was born and grew up in North America, I spent 24 years in South America. Today my younger daughter is in Spain for the summer and next month my older daughter moves to Germany to marry the German man she loves!

    Love the house pictures! What a great vacation place that would be!

  41. Oh bliss! Just looking at the photos made me wish I was on holiday there! I've never been to Spain - but since we're in the dead of winter here - it definitely looks enticing. Hope Robbie gets to make lots of lovely memories there.
