Possible holidays end of july in Catalonia with wife and 3 kids
Posted June 9th, 2012 - 9:42 am by from Vichy, France (Permalink)
Hi all !

So here's my problem : i'm married with 3 kids and we live in Vichy (middle of France).

We were supposed to go in holidays in my wife's family, near Béziers (south, not far away from the sea), about 10 days from 28th of july to 8th of august (maybe less, money would decide) .
It was planned since several months and we were all very excited.

Big problem yesterday : my wife got her mother on the phone, and she told us that they can't host us anymore because one of her other daughter came with her boyfriend and they will stay several weeks, maybe months...not cool at all, my wife cried all night because of our kids and she's very upset :(

I signed in on CS a few weeks ago, chatted with a few CSurfers and i love the open mind and freedom spirit people have here.

We don't actually have the opportunity to host people (a little appartment and crazy neighbours... :s ), but we hope we can move out to a bigger and calmer place.

I'm getting lost in my own history so i'll go straight now lol : i thought that maybe that situation is a sort of sign to test couchsurfing AND visit another country, know other people etc...I know that 2 adults and 3 kids are pretty hard to host, but i'm asking because as we say in France : "winners have all participated".

We don't want to stay 10 days with the same host, just 2 nights, then move to another location and meet all new people :)

A great thing would be to follow the coast, and maybe if we have enough money go to Gibraltar to see Africa coasts :)

So we're searching for hosts on the Spain's coast, 2 nights for 1 couple and 3 kids (1 adult bed/couch and 1-2 kid inflatable bed would be enough, we're not searching for 4 stars hotels lol). A little french speaking would be great because i'm the only one who knows english enough to chat (and as you can see it's far from perfection lol).

I really hope there will be 4-5 couchsurfers to help us in our journey, thanks in advance ! :)

After a few math, i'm afraid Gibraltar won't be an option :(
Barcelona could be the last stop before having to go back home.

Do you people think i posted my request in a wrong section ? Should i post it in the general Spain section or maybe aim directly at Barcelona to maximize our chances ?

Have a nice week end all ! :)
