Here at KOTC headquarters we like to think of our readers as being a part of our family. Recently, we have been trying to imagine the many thousands of families living and holidaying in southern Spain that reads our publications and what each family loves doing the most together in this very family orientated part of the world. I know, it's a tall order - especially with so much to choose from!
Being a family ourselves - two teenagers, 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 2 grandparents that live beside us - we have so many incredible things that we have loved doing over the years together - whether it be the historical visit to Castillo de Gibralfaro in Malaga City, the crazy fun day at Tivoli World in Benalmadena, the scenic train journey to Rhonda, the scary but exciting cable car ride to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar, the picturesque walk through Mijas Village, the beautiful drive along the Costa del Sol exploring new areas, cooling down on a very hot summer's day at the water park in Torremolinos, a day at the beach soaking up the sun in Marbella, having a laugh at the pantomine in Fuengirola, enjoying the many colourful fieras and fiestas in Malaga, or a celebratory meal out at one of our many favourite restaurants.
Family Fun Wet Day Activity
Sharing our fond memories by looking through the hundreds of photographs of the many different places we have visited - and talking about what we each loved - is another precious family time we really enjoy. If you are struggling to find something to do with the kids on a wet day, this is ideal! You can even make it a fun arts and crafts type activity and get your child to pick out a few of their favourite ones and put them together in a collage to display in their bedroom. Children love to see themselves in photographs and even more so when mum and dad are in there too.
Looking through all of our photos got us thinking about how it would be a wonderful (but challenging) project to get as many families as we can to share a fond family memory of a place they visited from anywhere in the southern region of Andalucia - whether they are living or holidaying here.
The Kids on the Costa team are now putting together a collage of all the photographs we collect, displaying them on our website into easy to view categories/areas, and if this project grows big enough, we would love to do a joint project with as many Town Halls as we can to have them all displayed! Watch this space...!
All we need from each participating family is:
One High Quality Image
Name of Place Visited in the Image
Whether You Live or Holiday in Spain
That's it! Please upload your image here.
Share this Project
We need as many families as possible to know about this exciting project. Please help us to share this post with your family and friends that either live or visit this part of Spain. Thank you :-)
If you would like to know how the project is progressing and where to view the images online/offline, please subscribe to our Newsletter for updates.
Thank you for your contribution - we're excited to see how big this project gets and to see all the many families and the places they have visited in this very special part of Spain.
