Each Autumn our consulting and blogging takes a little siesta, so Alan and I take full advantage of this time to work on projects and improve our Spanish. This time we tried experiential learning Spanish mixed with some traditional classroom time. Yep, we are taking the slow road to fluency, but at least we are still on that road! To top it all off, we know we are better than we were last year!
It looks like some people are curious about our experience with teen braces in Spain, so time to dig into the details and frequently asked questions for you! We will cover the process for finding the right orthodontist, the process we went through, as well as our cost for braces in Spain.
As you know, we have been living in Spain for a few years, and during that time we have done our fair share of driving and trying to figure out the Spanish road signs. I remember when we first arrived and trying to figure out the rules of the road. Coming from the United States, there were plenty of things that were familiar, but many others that just made us wonder, or look up the answer on the internet.
We have welcomed several visitors to Spain and it has been fun driving around with them. It is fun hearing their thoughts on driving in Spain as well the meaning of the road signs in Spain and the street markings. Did you know we have a Zebra, Giraffe and Jellyfish crossing? What about the Poo Stop or Ninja’s on the loose?
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 for 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.

For 6 years we have been spoiled with the view from our terrace. Of course along the way we have shared that view via video and photos with you. Today we have somewhat of a special treat to share. Something we’ve been saying we were going to do for years and now we’ve done it! Well, I asked Alan to set it all up and he did it! Today you get to see what we see! With nearly 20 hours of our view in just minutes of video experience a busy summer’s day, from sunrise to sunset!
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!
Should you be tipping in Spain? You are traveling around Spain and of course enjoying plenty of offered services which come along with travel. If you are coming from the US or another country which customarily tips for service, you may be a little perplexed when you are in Spain. I bet tipping in Spain is a bit different from what you are accustomed to. So, do you tip in Spain? Keep on reading our Spain Tipping Guide!
There I am sitting at a sidewalk cafe, with the sun shining and the chatter of people around. I am enjoying my weekly meet up and coffee with my Spanish friend, which is always full of laughs and joy. Our conversation was flowing and then took an interesting and inquisitive turn about my life in Spain.
