By choice, I have been out of paid work since May of 2012 and Alan has been since July 2012.  Yes, that is when we quit our fantastic corporate jobs and sold almost all of our belongings.  That is when we decided we were going to temporarily “retire”, take a sabbatical, a mini retirement and have the life of leisure.  Oh yes, and we were going to up and move to Spain too, to enjoy life.  It was our dream to once again live overseas and we knew we had to take destiny into our own hands to make it happen. That is when many people thought we were crazy to give up our home, our security our storybook suburban life.

No Schengen Visa Needed For Wagoners Abroad In 2013!

So I am sure some of you are asking,  “What the heck is a Schengen Visa?”  While others are well aware of it and the limitations.  Just to be brief the Schengen Visa is an agreement between 25 countries (22 European Union states and 3 non-EU members).  A Schengen Visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 month period, thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country.  So how did we manage to stay in Spain, a member of the Schengen Zone, the entire year without a Schengen Visa?
