Why come to Costa Tropical Spain? Where is that? Everyone knows about the coasts with the big cities Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol, Costa Dorada (Alicante, Malaga, Barcelona, Valencia), but not many know about Costa Tropical. That’s why it’s one of the best places to live in Spain! Shhh, don’t tell anyone! With coast, mountains, sea, mild winters, and more.
Dreaming of something different? Do you want to live in Spain for a year? Perhaps a gap year in Spain is what you need? Does this sound like you?
There you are living a wonderful life with both parents working and the kids are in school. Your afternoons and evenings are spent running around from activity to event and driving from one location to another. Sometimes you need to have a quick meal out, as there just isn’t enough time to cook a meal at home. Once you arrive home, it is time to do a bit of cleaning, have the kids finish their homework, and have a little bit of time together as a family. Time to go to bed and start it all again tomorrow.
Is it your dream to travel the world and run your business? One of the benefits of your own business is that you can work from anywhere. You are your own boss, so if you want to be a digital nomad or work abroad you can. If you do it right and get all the necessary support, then you should in essence be able to run your business in the same way you would do if you were in the office Monday to Friday.
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.
We lived along the beautiful southern coast of Spain from August 2012, with a trip to Asia in the mix too. In Spain, we live in a small town named Almuñécar and we use this as our home base to explore more of Europe as well. We kept track of every expenditure along the way the first couple of year and have shared our cost of living in Spain with you. This page is a compilation of our expenses in Spain and how much it really costs for our family of 4 to live in Spain. We have more recent updates included too.
As you know, our move to Spain started with a career break, taking a sabbatical, planning a family gap year, or whatever you want to call it. After years of travel, it has now officially turned into a travel lifestyle. Yes, we now have the lifestyle of the open-ended traveler with a home base in Spain.
How did you go from Career Break to Lifestyle?
How do you make money online? (C’mon this is the real question you want answered, right?)
Six years ago we moved to Spain with suitcases and backpacks, ready to start our adventure and live in Spain for a year or two. That was it! That was the plan! Here we are after six years, with so many life changing experiences, memories and stories.
Just as years past, 2016 has been full of fun, adventure, and work for the Wagoner Family. We thought we would take a little trip down memory lane with you and share yet another epic year abroad. Every single day we are so happy with our decision to become self-made expats. We took control of our lives and stopped waiting for something to happen or someone to give us a break. We created and designed our own family travel lifestyle over 4 years ago and we plan to keep it going!
