As nice as it is in Spain, sometimes you just want to call home and have a chat with friends or family. This post will cover calling the USA from Spain. It’s surprising how many options there are, so let’s dig in.
If you’re looking for an excellent way to travel throughout Europe without having to worry about the Schengen Area visa restrictions, then obtaining the Non-Lucrative Visa from Spain is an excellent choice. If you are moving to Spain from the US, this will allow Spain to be your gateway to Europe.
What was it that Bob Dylan wrote? Ahh yes, “The times they are a changin’“. So why do I bring that song up? It’s really a mundane thing, but the time in Spain will be changing. It’s time to turn the clocks back. Who out there (in the Northern Hemisphere) has been waiting all year for that extra hour of sleep? This guy, that’s who!
Let’s do some basic counting. I want you to count along with me. Heck…you can even choose the language.
Let’s go back in time. About 30 seconds ago (before you read the N340 title of this post). Back then, if I had asked you what the longest major road in Spain is, what would you have said? You might have thought about the big autovias (freeways) in Spain like the A-7. After all, it starts close to the border with France and ends near Algeciras. let’s go back to the future. Now that we’re back where we started, you know that the N-340 is the Longest road in Spain.
If you like to be on the go and play music, you may want to invest in a travel keyboard instrument. With plane seats and overhead storage compartments getting smaller, bringing a full-size keyboard is not really an option. Even if you check an instrument, there’s no guarantee it will survive. There have been many cases where an airline damaged keyboards, violins, cellos, or guitars. So you gotta think smaller and travel size.
We’ve written and consulted quite a bit about U.S. citizens retiring to Spain. Recently, due to a lot of positive press, more and more people are asking us about the process of moving to Portugal and residency in Portugal. This post will take a 30,000 foot (9144 meter) view of the process. The great news is that it’s much easier than the Spanish residency process. Let’s dig in!
For the last 5 years or so, we’ve helped hundreds of people (individuals, couples, and families) relocate to Spain using the Non-Lucrative or Retirement Visas. Recently, we’ve been getting asked more about a relatively new visa program: The Golden Visa Spain. While this may sound like something out of Willy Wonka, it’s really a fantastic program for those who are interested in obtaining long-term residence in Spain. In some ways, it’s much easier to obtain, and there are fewer restrictions for those who obtain the Golden Visa. So let’s get into it!
Welcome back to Wagoners Abroad Adults learning Subjunctive Spanish! Heidi and I have been off learning about a new “mode” that is used when speaking Spanish. It was a 3-day workshop, and the TL;DR is that we had a good time, and learned a lot.
