Comparison of USA and Spain Cost Of Living (Show me the money $)

We are often asked about how much everyday things cost in Spain and how does that compare with 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?

We have been asked, “How can you possibly live in Europe for less than the USA?”, as Western Europe has the reputation of “being expensive”.  Do you think you could live off of less and save money if you tried?  Do you think it is just too difficult or just not possible?  Anything is possible if you simplify your 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?

Our 1 Year In Spain Is Up – How Long Will We Stay?

As mentioned in our post reflecting on 1 year in Spain, we have started the process for our resident card renewal.  Our resident cards officially expired on August 28, 2013.  We had the choice of renewing our resident cards or say adios to Spain.  After much family discussion and a long look at the budget, the goodbye part just wasn’t option (at least not for now).   As mentioned before, if we can supplement with some income, we can go a bit further. So how long will we stay in Spain?

A Typical Day – Pre and During Sabbatical Life

What do you do all day?Many of you keep asking “What do you guys do all day?” We don’t currently have paid jobs, so what could we possibly do to keep busy and prevent us from being bored?  I know it is difficult to believe we are Not Working, but in a sense we really are.  To be honest, we wonder where the time goes and still think that there is not enough time in the day.  We also wish that money grew on trees, but nothing wrong with being dreamers right?    Continue reading
