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.
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.
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!
If you are a family that loves to travel, but doesn’t really like the “planning” part of the trip, this is for you. We have done our fair share of trip planning and we know how stressful it can be. When you are limited on time, it can be difficult to organize, prioritize and fit it all in. We were recently introduced to the concept of Travelove and immediately liked it. The concept of having a family friendly trip custom designed for you, was very appealing. We’ve decided to partner with them and that is why we can offer you 20% off any Travelove Trip! Read on to learn more about it.
When we started on our journey in August of 2012, we had a plan. That plan was to be away for 18 months or so, and then return to the USA and return to a traditional life. We moved to Spain, went through a couple of honeymoon months. Then into a period of trying to figure out our rhythm and routine in our simplified lifestyle. We cleansed ourselves from all of the material things we collected in our traditional American lifestyle. We were now in new territory and trying to find the path for our family.
