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?
What was it that Bob Dylan wrote? Ahh yes, “The times they are a changin’“. So why do I bring that song up? It’s really a mundane thing, but the time in Spain will be changing. It’s time to turn the clocks back. Who out there (in the Northern Hemisphere) has been waiting all year for that extra hour of sleep? This guy, that’s who!
The unexpected gift which turned into a magical treasure for Anya, the best scratch off map of the world. Two years ago, on Anya’s 9th birthday, we were invited over to our neighbors for a special homemade dessert to celebrate her birthday.

So you are planning a trip for a week or a year and that dreaded question comes up. Should you buy travel insurance? This is really a personal choice for each and every person. When we traveled Southeast Asia for 10 months, we opted to buy travel insurance. We wanted to be sure we were covered for the unexpected. We’ve heard many stories of people having accidents and wishing they had travel insurance. We can only hope every day is a peaceful day.
Have you always dreamed of exploring the European continent? With so many vastly different countries in a relatively small geographic area, Europe calls to the explorer in each of our hearts. But as you’re daydreaming about sipping your latte from a balcony in Positano, you get a notification from your bank and quickly snap back to reality. Traveling across Europe can be expensive. How can you save money while you travel in Europe?
Mixed feelings of excitement and anxiety run through your mind because planning for a family road trip is never as simple as it seems. However, a prep list is the key to turning that chaos of planning into a stress-free cruise filled with comfort.
Living and driving in Spain for the past six years has turned us into road warriors and of course driving in Spain gurus. We have purchased 2 cars, sold one car and we are well above the count of 20 when it comes to car rentals cars in Spain. For almost a year, we rented cars regularly, when we didn’t own a car. We have also flown to other parts of Spain and then rented a car for our vacation. Not to mention the many visitors and blog readers we have helped with renting a car in Spain. So I guess we do have a bit of experience on the matter. Let’s cover the most frequently asked questions for your car rental Spain.
