We are asked time and time again about all of our house sitting opportunities. We get questions like, “How do we find housesits who accept families?”, “How do you house sit all over the world?”, “Do you get to choose the type of animal you will be pet sitting?” and the lists goes on. For us, house sitting is an excellent way for us to get time with pets as well as save a little money on accommodation when traveling. Below we will share with you everything you need to know about house sitting. Oh and a little something special, just for Wagoners Abroad readers!
Easter has passed, which marks the beginning of my annual Spring cleaning! Not to worry, I do clean more than just once a year (usually). Yes, it is time to get rid of those little dust bunnies collecting under the bed, behind the dresser, and in the corner. As well as the hand prints on the outside of the sliding glass door. We can say good-bye to the cobwebs, which have formed on the ceilings and in those unused corners of the home. And my favorite is, so long to the dust build up on the ceiling fans and base boards.
So many people ask us about the kids education in Spain and it is never easy to answer. You see we can’t speak for all of the schools in Spain, we can only share with you our experience. We are certain that everyone has different experiences depending on location, type of school and the biggest variable, the students attending.
Each night, we sit in our living room and have a spectacular view of the Mediterranean Sea. While it is dark, off in the distance we see lights passing by. These are often cruise ships or some other type of ship making their way from one place to another. It is also symbolic of our daily life and our travel lifestyle.
Well it is official, we received our notification of approval and paid our fees. Fingerprints and passport photos have been taken, so in a few weeks we will have our new Spanish Resident Cards, valid for another two years! Will we stay that long? Who knows, but we can if we want to. Woo Hooo!
So let me catch you up on what’s going on with us recently. We will also detail the entire process for the Spanish Resident Card Renewal. I know you are excited!
I don’t know why, but it seems for the past few weeks many of you want to know more about renting a car in Spain. I find it odd, as the high tourist season is over, but we are happy to respond and do our best to answer your questions. Of course each person asks a slightly different question, but all relating to a rental car in Spain. Of course when things like this happen, what do we do? We compile all of our info into a post and share it on the blog, this way we have an easy link to point people to in the future.
If you are a family that loves to travel, but doesn’t really like the “planning” part of the trip, this is for you. We have done our fair share of trip planning and we know how stressful it can be. When you are limited on time, it can be difficult to organize, prioritize and fit it all in. We were recently introduced to the concept of Travelove and immediately liked it. The concept of having a family friendly trip custom designed for you, was very appealing. We’ve decided to partner with them and that is why we can offer you 20% off any Travelove Trip!
