At the end of each week, my wife and I take an evening's walk to the top of the town. From our perch overlooking the winding streets below, we watch as the sun sets over the mountains and reflect on how different our life has become.
As I pull open the shades each morning, the warm Spanish sun of the new day shines in. 300 days of sunshine bring light and life to the historic city of Alcázar de San Juan, with its 30,000 residents. My wife, Nadiana, and I moved to central Spain seven months ago to teach English. Since September, our small budget has allowed us to enjoy the amazing weather, delicious food, and beautiful landscapes of Spain, all while saving at the same time.
