One year ago we bought a house here in southern Spain (check out the episode). Since then we've immersed ourselves in the language and community, enjoying getting to know this beautiful part of the world.
Today we’re sharing a first-timer’s look at our life in Spain.
Our good friend Debb dropped in for a visit, and we’re going to talk about expectations, open hearts, and diving into new experiences. And since it’s totally unscripted, you might learn a secret or two about us!

Over the last year we've been watching a love story unfold between two lost loves. We enjoyed it so much we decided to dedicate this episode to telling the story of Anong and Cesar, which was 42 years in the making.
Pretend right now that you’re at our house in Spain, gathered around the dining room table. The music is low in the background, the fire in the corner stove is keeping the chill off, and we’ve all had a glass of wine or two. It’s a cozy night, and we’re sharing with you one of the greatest love stories we've ever heard. It all started with a picture we took in January 2011.

This week Betsy's busy putting the final draft together of her new book, Wild Rose, so things are a bit crazy at Casa Talbot. It's been a year since we bought our casita in this tiny village in southern Spain so we're taking the chance to reshare one of our most popular episodes to date.
Episode #56 comes to you from sunny Andalucia, Spain and was the first episode we recorded from the studio of our Spanish home. We share what it's like to buy a house in Spain.
From why we did it to how we did it and the joys and mishaps that happened along the way, find out why we came to Spain to house sit and ended up buying a house of our own.

Learn what we thought the day after we made the big decision to leave our jobs and travel the world. Like most big decisions, it didn't come with a book of instructions, and we'll explain what worked for us in keeping ourselves sane, motivated, and on track...and also to keep making big decisions. (It gets easier!)
You'll also learn how our "lab experiment" lifestyle contributes to our confidence in making these big decisions as well as how sexy it is to be teammates!
