We are a family of 4 Danes living in Spain. We love the climate, the people and the culture – most of it 🙂 Because moving to another country also makes you very much aware of what you like about your own culture, and how Danish we really are.
I (Dawn – mother, wife) write about food, education – and maybe later I’ll write something about the political situation in Spain, in Europe and the Western World in general – who knows? We live and learn together as a family – i.e. our children are home schooled – first because we were not satisfied with the current educational system in Spain, but the more and more, because we truly do not believe in schooling… paradox when both of us did so well in school 😉 But we are both libertarian, and we believe that to bring up our children to be free thinking individuals, they need to be able to question everything. That they cannot do in the Spanish school system, and thus they will not go there unless they want to themselves. We are moving in to the campo (countryside) to try to live a life “off the grid” – i.e. of the water network, the electricity network and the sewer network – but not of the internet… that we cannot live without 🙂 We want to grow our own food, we want to spend less money and be more independent – but we do not want to live in the stoneage.
