An Expat's Voyage of Discovery

Hola! I’m Becky, a passionate traveler, partner, parent, and your storyteller. This space serves as a chronicle of our family’s transformative adventure, one that has led us from the familiar streets of Los Angeles, California to the charming alleyways of Valencia, Spain.

At its core, our story transcends the physical journey. Triggered by the sudden death of my beloved father in early 2021, and shaped by my grieving process, we embarked on this expat experience to embrace change, live out our family’s priorities and dreams, and keep his legacy alive. Through the tales of our travels, living in Spain, and this blog, we honor his enduring influence and spirit while connecting with others and sharing the highs, lows, and everything in-between.
