My name is Ellen. In November 2012 my husband, son (then 4 1/2), and I began a 15-week family sabbatical in Bariloche, Argentina. We had such a good experience that we started plotting to do it again, but for longer, and that’s how we ended up in the historic Albaycin neighborhood of Granada, Spain. Follow our experiences as our son begins second grade at the local public school, I squelch perfectionist tendencies in an attempt to learn conversational Spanish (aspirations!), and all of us enjoy a carless life in Andalucia.
