Spain

In September 2015 we moved from Kassel, Germany, to Barcelona, Spain. We didn’t move to Barcelona because of the nice temperatures and the sunshine but because of the need to find an appropriate school for our trilingual daughter. As we speak Spanish at home, moving to Spain was a simple and straightforward decision.

In August 2017 we moved out of Barcelona and to a small town in the Cordoba province of Andalucia to start a new venture.
