Moving and successfully living in Spain: useful information, recommendations, and experiences from other expatriates.

In this Podcast, we interview diverse individuals that will share with us how they have relocated here, highlighting valuable lessons, challenging situations and funny anecdotes about their time in this country.

Week after week, our guests and I provide practical content on how to plan and execute this move, living on your own terms and reaching your expectations.

Besides those episodes, yourwayinspain.com website also provides summaries of each of them, together with links to mentioned resources and more details about our guests and partners.

Our intention is to fill an information gap encountered by foreigners willing to come to Spain or having already established in this country, no matter what their age, nationality, condition or aspirations are. They could be new to this state or previously know it from a visit to a relative or friend, or per touristic or working reasons.

Factors such as globalisation and digitalisation are determining that more and more people (retirees, professionals, freelancers, entrepreneurs, teachers, students, etc.) are considering moving to Spain or at least spending part of the year here.

During our conversations, we also address the skills and aptitudes that current and future residents should develop for having a fruitful and satisfactory stay in social, cultural, health, family, labour, and travel terms.

We expect this to be an intense and enjoyable journey for us all. Let’s make the most of our life in España.
