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.
So you are thinking you want to retire and live in Spain for 6 months or spend the winter in Spain. If you are an American citizen, there isn’t a visa to do exactly this, but you do have some options available.
Visit Spain in Winter and stay for a while! Do you want to escape your harsh winter weather? Or maybe you just want a change of scenery? Would you be interested in living in Spain for a month or even 3 months? Why not spend your winter in Spain?
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?)
- When are you returning to the USA?
Let’s do some basic counting. I want you to count along with me. Heck…you can even choose the language.
I think if you ask anyone in Europe what Spain is known for, they will quickly respond with sun and beaches, but there is more to it than that!
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.
We are often asked about our Spain cost of living compared to the USA. You know, the cost of daily life, to just live and do what you want to do. This was a question that came to us in our post – What Do You Want To Know or Have Us Show?
Before moving to Spain, we thought that the cost of living in Europe was going to be expensive. Of course we had our doubts that we would be able to live on the budget we set for our family of 4. We made it happen and with the right choices you can too. From 2012 to 2020!
Dreaming of something different? How about living 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.
