The road to obtaining a Spanish drivers license has been a rough, frustrating process. It worked out for us in the end, but now that we have our license, I figured it was worthwhile to explain what we did, the process we went through, and my general frustrations with the whole process.

4 years ago today we flew to Spain, for what we thought was going to be a 1-2 year experience. Here we are after 4 years and 25+ countries, living our dream.
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!
