My Trip To Spain Starts in 10 Days
I'm so excited!
Last October, I bought myself a ticket to Spain as a gift for my 33rd birthday. Spain has been at the top of my travel list for a decade, so why has it taken me this long? I stayed away for two reasons:
I know I'll be devastated if it isn't as amazing as I think it is.
I won't want to leave if it does live up to my high expectations.
When I first booked my ticket to Spain, the country had no visa provisions for digital nomads.
That changed at the start of this year when Spain created a visa that makes it easy for us to become residents. It seemed like an impossible stroke of good luck that after a year of monitoring the laws there, things should change just months after I bought my ticket to visit.
Will I pack up my life in North America, ship the FJ, and move to Spain?
I won't lie. I've been thinking about it a lot lately and making inquiries. But for now, my main focus is packing up temporarily to enjoy a month in Europe for the first time. Every other decision that follows will depend on this trip.
When you travel full-time in an RV, that packing process is easier said than done. I've spent the past few weeks considering my options for storing the RV in Mexico and then storing the truck in California because I need to drive across the border.
And, of course, I travel with my cat.
Ultimately, buying the ticket has been the simplest and cheapest part of my trip to Spain so far!
Is it any wonder this post is coming out late?
