Collectively we traveled to 35+ countries in the past 20+ years. Since August of 2012 we have been expats living in Spain and visited Portugal, France and Gibraltar. We lived in Costa Tropical, but also loved Costa del Sol. We had a blast on our 6 week European Road Trip – Summer 2013 and even provide you with the cost break down. We experienced our first house sit experience in London and did some cooking in Morocco. Here is a rundown of where we went in 2013 and didn’t need to worry about that Schengen Visa! If you know of a place we should visit, just let us know.
We share all of the details with you on the costs of everyday things and what our expenses are. This is all just data to help you determine what you might expect to spend.

Want to know more about their education and comparison of US to our Spanish school? Are you curious about their report cards, we tell it all. Their creativity has really blossomed and they helped write and inspire the Wagoners Abroad cookbook “Let the Kids Cook – Inspired by Kids for Kids”. We have a video interview series on YouTube as well.
Check out our grand master plan to be an Expat Living in Spain. You will also soon find that every plan changes and evolves, so look for updates in this area as we “change our minds”.
