Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

Illescas, Spain 🇪🇸 Vlog #65

 We love taking the train to Illescas from Malaga. The train takes about 2 1/2 hour instead of a 6 hour car or bus ride. It’s a very smooth, comfortable and scenic ride. We hired a driver through booking.com that picked us up right at the train station entrance. The cost is minimal and so worth the price.

Illescas is a sweet little village near Madrid. It's a better fit for us because we don't care for the large cities but close enough to spend the day in Madrid or Toledo. This little town has everything we need and it is not full of tourists which is perfect. We stayed at the Hotel Real which we booked through Expedia.com  https://www.hotelrealillescas.es/

There are some wonderful local restaurants that we would like to recommend that were favorites of the locals. Restaurante Villa Molero Illescas  http://villamoleroillescas.com/  & La Almazara http://laalmazara.eltenedor.rest/en_GB/
