So, we have (actually I have) been putting together a list of areas that might be relocation possibilities. I have been looking through pages of what is required for Americans to move to Europe and wondering why I didn’t just stay in Europe when I had the opportunity. It was so easy years ago. O.k. That would have changed my family structure….I can see J.W. rolling his eyes.
A few years ago on my other blog, I was talking about purchasing a fixer-upper in Italy and although it was tongue-in-cheek, a few sane people believed it. O.K, maybe not totally sane. While Italy is gorgeous, Spain has won my heart (O.K, many places have won my heart and Italy is not ruled out).
Well, here is what I call a fab fixer-upper in Spain. Segovia to be exact. Can you see the potential?
Look at those balconies. Hubby had a problem with the fact it was lacking a roof, walls, structure. No vision….sad. To be honest with you, I don’t think I have it in me to attempt something like this. A younger Barb would have been in without hesitation.
Isn’t this wonderful? Walls, windows, fireplace, charm and character in Madrid. So many possibilities. Hubby was a little worried that I was trying to break in when I kept creeping around the structure. Just checking out what was behind the building. Nothing more than that. Oh, I guess I should mention this is located in Campo Del Moro and state property (Royal at that). I guess I should be happy I wasn’t arrested. A small matter….
Well, after much discussion, when we do move, we just want to move in. Period. Of course this is subject to change but easy sounds just about perfect right now.
Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time researching Ecuador, It truly has so much to offer. I was horrified this morning when I turned on the news, God Bless those who have lost loved ones, or have been injured or have lost everything. I can’t imagine how horrific that earthquake must have been. My heart goes out to those in Ecuador and Japan. I have been through small quakes but obviously nothing like these earthquakes. I pray I never experience that.
Thank you for visiting friends. You are appreciated.
Always big hugs,
