It’s that time of year again! School is almost out and summer is fast approaching. Summer 2019 will mark a few milestones for us. See what exciting plans do we have this year?
Starting a business in Spain wasn’t too difficult, but it did come with plenty of frustration. I am sure it would be the same in any country, but Spain continually presents me with opportunities to “calm down”. Just take a deep breath and keep focused on the end goal.
I 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. Of course, each person asks a slightly different question, but all relating to a rental car in Spain. Of course, when things like this happen, what do we do? We compile all of our info into a post and share it on the blog, this way we have an easy link to point people to in the future.
Is it expensive to live in Spain? The cost of living in Spain revealed! So many people are planning the move, but don’t know the cost of living in Spain. We thought it was time for an up-to-date post, reviewing costs of things so you may plan for 2019! We will share detailed information about the cost of living in Spain. This includes groceries, utilities, rent, dental expenses (braces), phones, internet and rental cars in Spain.
Dreaming of something different? Perhaps a family 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.
First off, I don’t mean to sound negative. And I don’t want to come off as a snobby tourist, but there’s a few things that happened in Paris that bothered me. Now these common Paris scams happen in every popular tourist place, but it still bugs me that there are people doing this kind of stuff, and are not actively getting arrested (or their butt’s kicked!).
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.
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.
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 5 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.
