~You cannot discover new roads until you’re willing to lose sight of your front door~   Since retiring, do you plan for your future, or do you go-with-the-flow?

When people think of Spain, what generally pops into their minds is a stereotype. Bulls, flamenco dancers, sangría, and possibly, paella dance through their heads.
