Every now and again we receive questions which we are dying to just type a reply of “Google it!”. We tend to just answer the question as it is either a client, future client or a loyal reader. Hopefully this post on facts about Spain, including maps of Spain will do the trick and help some of you find your answers. These should be handy if you are just travelling to Spain or if you are planning to move to Spain.
Imagine not being able to leave your home for several weeks. What will you do all day? How will you cope? The Coronavirus COVID-19 has hit Spain, so what’s it been like for us? What was it like to be in the USA?
If you are planning a move to Spain, already living in Spain or just planning a visit, you should really learn the body parts in Spanish. You never know when you are going to need to make that trip to the médico or doctor.
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.
Once I became a mother, I began to better understand the cherish every moment phrase. Almost 30 years ago, I recall my mother say to my face “I miss you already”. I giggled a little and said, “I’m standing right here, how is that possible?” Just the other day, that very memory came back to me and hit me like a ton of bricks.
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!
Let me start by saying, we love that you follow along with our adventures and are curious about the cost to live in Spain. You really keep us motivated to keep up with our writing. Living in Spain for a year was amazing and we will keep on going!
I have to admit I do love that people actually read my boring budget stuff. It’s great fun to play with spreadsheets, look for the best travel deals, and plan away. I can’t believe there are other people out there that like this stuff too. They don’t even include any exciting photos, but these budget posts are popular! Let’s get into the cost of living in Spain!
WhatI 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.
