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.

In the early hours of the morning on August 26th, 2012, we stepped off of our overnight flight and were in Barcelona! Though we were exhausted and it was a long flight for the kids, we were pumped with energy and excitement. We were all in great moods and had no idea what our future would hold. This was only our second time in Spain, but we walked with our heads held high as we exited the Barcelona Airport, for the first time as Spanish residents!

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?
First let me start by saying that we have a limited source of data for this post. It is just our opinion and Comparison of the 1 Primary School we attended in USA and the 1 Primary School we are attending in Spain. This is by no means meant to generalize for a country or even a city/district.
These are just the things we have personally experienced or observed in our own little Wagoner Bubble, with the Spain education system compared to US! 🙂
If you are living or have lived in Spain with kids in public school, please share your observations as well. Continue reading →
Hey there! It’s Heidi here and I wanted to start publishing some of our newsletters on the blog as well. So if you are interested in receiving them, go ahead and subscribe now. We tend to send something out monthly, but sometimes we will post them here too. The photo below is Playa Puerta del Mar, a beach in our town.
Frigiliana Spain – A small white village located on the Eastern edge of the Malaga Province, in Andalucia. Just 6 km in the hills above Nerja and about 45 minutes from the Malaga Airport. This is a perfect place for an afternoon away to explore a quaint Spanish Village. Today we are going to take you on a “Photo Walk” of Calle Real (the main street in the Old part of town). This is the well-preserved part of the village, with a Moorish origin.
We are often asked about our Spain cost of living compared to the USA. You know, the cost of daily life, to just live and do what you want to do. This was a question that came to us in our post – What Do You Want To Know or Have Us Show?
Before moving to Spain, we thought that the cost of living in Europe was going to be expensive. Of course we had our doubts that we would be able to live on the budget we set for our family of 4. We made it happen and with the right choices you can too.
