Our founder, Sarah Gemba, was thrilled to be featured recently on the MumAbroad Life website in the interview section as well as their business directory of expat mothers running businesses in Spain.
Sarah offers her thoughts and some great tips on living in Seville as an expat mother:
«I have always felt very welcomed as a foreigner living in Seville. People are always fascinated about what brought me here and want to know more about my home culture.
There are lots of families and children in Seville and opportunities for activities with children are growing all the time. There is a great newsletter I suggest families subscribe to that offers a weekly update on child-friendly activities in Seville, called Sevilla con los Peques.
Other recommendations to mums in the area would be to join the American Women’s Club (AWC) chapter in Seville that organizes lots of activities for every walk of life, and especially for families. There is also a wonderful Facebook page called Mums in Seville that is a wealth of information for recently-arrived expat families.
Relocating to a new country and adapting to a new culture takes patience and understanding – the locals won’t always do things the way you are used to them being done back home and that’s OK. Just remember you live in a beautiful city with so much to offer. Seville, and Spain as a whole, is very welcoming to children and families, and I think it’s a great place to live!»
Spain Savvy is grateful to the MumAbroad Life network for being so supportive of expat mothers.
