Let me start by saying, we love that you follow along with our adventures and are curious about the cost to live in Spain. You really keep us motivated to keep up with our writing. I have to admit I do love that people actually read my boring budget stuff. It’s great fun to play with spreadsheets, look for the best travel deals, and plan away. I can’t believe there are other people out there that like this stuff too. They don’t even include any exciting photos, but these budget posts are popular! Let’s get into the cost of living in Spain!
If you want to move to Spain from the US or any other country, you have come to the right place! Welcome to Wagoners Abroad and all of our knowledge about getting a non lucrative visa Spain style! We know it can all be overwhelming planning a move and you will get years of experience within this page. We share why we think Spain is one of the best places to live for families! Of course we have our opinion and chose it as our best country to raise a family.

Nearly two years living in Spain and it’s time for us to move on to our new adventures. We had a rough time the last couple of weeks and it was a very emotional time for us all. The kids finished school, Lars graduated from 6th grade and it was all really hitting home that we were leaving. We of course shared with you a few things we will miss, and that we prefer to say “see ya later” rather than goodbye. Our time wouldn’t be complete without a final “Living in Spain” video interview with Anya and Lars.
It is time to talk money, money, money! Oh how I love doing these.
Why do we share our budget and actual spend with you? We hope it helps as a guide in case you are planning to live or vacation in Spain or visit any of the other destination we visit. Again, everything is different for each family, based on your lifestyle and choices, so this is only a guide. Plus, it seems that some of you like to read them too, so that is good.
I can’t believe we have been living in Spain for 19 months and are still pretty much on track with our budget. In this post we will show you Quarter 1 (January – March 2014) Actual Spend. Continue reading
Can you believe we have been expats in Spain for 18 months?! It is absolutely amazing how fast the time has flown by. We are in “just normal life” here and for us Almuñécar has been the best place to live in Spain. No matter where we travel, upon return, our choice is validated with that comfortable feeling of home.
How in the world is time flying by so fast? I can’t believe we have been living in Spain for 16 months and are still on track with our budget. In this post we will show you Quarter 4 (October – December 2013) Actual Spend. In the past we have shared our budget of $100/day for the family of 4. The main reason for stating it that way vs. $3000 a month is there are a few months that have 31 days. I know that doesn’t seem like much, but I am just trying to be sure we give you an accurate representation of what we are spending. Continue reading
We just wanted to share with you our Top 10 posts for the year. There was a tie for number 10, so you will see 11 listed. We have had a great year and we love keeping track of it all on Wagoners Abroad. We have an important milestone coming up on Monday, so stay tuned for a bigger trip down memory lane. We can’t thank you enough for following along, commenting, interacting, contacting us and supporting us. You make all of the hard work that goes into blogging worth it. Thanks!
Alan and I have been married for nearly 17 years and during that time we have always lived quite a distance from our families. Not to mention that our families are spread out all over the USA, so we have spent many holidays on our own, on the road, or with family coming to us. Every Christmas for us has been unique and so cherished no matter where we were located. To us, Christmas Tradition is about good quality family time, whether it is just the 4 of us or with a group of 20. Part of that tradition is having a Christmas Tree! Continue reading
