Home exchange is great! We have two scheduled for this trip. We have just arrived at our second in La Coruña, completely different from our other exchange home.
Now we are in the center of the city, with a less than 10 minute walk to a spectacular beach.
We are in the Northwest corner of Spain, in Galicia.
Once again the girls each have their own rooms, only now we are in a modern apartment near the top of a tall building with modern decor and electronics. (The other home in Palamos is a 17th century stone house).
Both houses are completely different from each other, yet both are spectacular in their own way.
We will be here for two weeks. The first two days were spent relaxing. Now we are ready to explore.
Here are some shots from our new La Coruña neighborhood (which is called A Coruña in Galician), starting with the view out of our window:
A surfing statue in front of the beach. We often see kids swimming in this statue’s base:
The town hall of La Coruña:
Some of the more modern buildings are inland, others are along the marina:
There is a waterfall in front of the Opera House, which is just a few blocks from our house.
Best part, we can walk to it all.
