I have not posted photos of Spain in ages! Sorry about that. When the SLR and Macbook got stolen, they took all the photos with them (sad face) but luckily my sister (pictured above with her family) had a copy of all our photos. So I have only just managed to get them and sort through them.
I think the easiest way of sharing this trip is by posting here and there the start to the end of our trip. In a Photos of Spain Series. Hope you enjoy them. Wow- I miss Spain. Truly love it there. It was winter while we visited (December) so not much color and warmth in the surrounding farms but the rest of Spain sure made up for it!
Above photo: Arriving at Barcelona airport, exhausted but excited! My sister and her family walking with relief of finally hitting ground! This was the 1st time the kids flew overseas and the first time my husband (pictured below) had seen dads Finca (ie-name for a building that is not quite a farm and not quite a villa). And this was the 1st time both our husbands and my sister had been to Spain. It was quite an exciting time! I had told them of dads home and his building process in Spain for a while and FINALLY we all got a chance to see it together, a special and blessed trip for sure.
The arrival on the spanish finca consisted of exploring the farm terraces and hills (photo below)
It is an 11 acre farm of unfarmed olive, orange, carob and mandarin trees. We also found ourselves absorbed in the beautiful view of the local village Benifallet. This is where by dad and step moms place is located but across the Riu Ebre from Benifallet. This is about an hour and half from Barcelona and half an hour from the coastline.
