Today is the 4th edition of our guest post series called ABCs of Travel. This is a listing of 26 prompts (one for each letter of the alphabet) that lets you tell a little bit about your travels: best, worst, and memorable. Let us know if you would like to be featured in a future edition.
There are people that go on adventures and then there are adventurous people that seem to take life by the horns and play by the rules that they have set for themselves. I would describe Lisa Hoashi as the latter.
Originally from Oregon, Lisa now resides with her Spanish husband on their farm in Catalunya where she runs a life coaching business in between adventures. Go on and read about her nine-month wilderness survival course, South American hitchhiking trip, and touching experience in a Syrian refugee camp.
Oh, and if you have even the slightest inkling of doing something you’ve been dreaming of but just aren’t sure how to go about it, I’d recommend signing up for Lisa’s free online event “Six Steps to Launch Your Dream” this Thursday, October 29.

Part of the magic of living where we do is walking the narrow, riverstone passageways we call streets and admiring all the different doors. It’s like being in a storybook. Doors of all shapes, sizes, and materials. No two are the same. It makes me want to to peek behind each one to see what lies beyond their oft-worn exteriors.
Here are just a few of examples that can be found within a few blocks of our home.
My wife and I just got done dropping our boys off for their last first day of school in Spain. It was fun and the usual beehive of activity. Many people, kids and adults alike, haven’t seen each other all summer and were reunited with hugs and greeting kisses.
What a difference a year makes.
Today is the 3rd edition of our guest post series called ABCs of Travel. This is a listing of 26 prompts (one for each letter of the alphabet) that lets you tell a little bit about your travels: best, worst, and memorable. Let us know if you would like to be featured in a future edition.
The best part of having a blog is that you can publish bits of information out into this tiny bit of virtual real estate. People with similar interests can find these little bits, reach out, and start a connection. And before you know, you’re having beers with your new friends in a faraway place.
This is what happened when I first met Ryan and Angela from Jets Like Taxis. We come from similar Midwestern U.S. roots but have met up on two different occasions in different cities in Spain. That’s just how this stuff works and I love it.
Ryan and Ang (along with their grumpy little dog Louis in tow) are designers that like to write about travel and location independence. Be sure to check out their site. They’ve lived in some incredible places, have experienced a bunch of cool things, and are just the type of folks you’d like to swap travel stories with over a cold one. And this is their ABCs.
My most popular posts all begin with the phrase “How to…” so here’s another one in the Spanish Non Lucrative Residence Visa series. The first series dealt with the initial application that is able to afford you 12-months of residency in Spain.
This is the first post of the next series related to renewing that residency.
The weather is quickly warming up in southern Spain. Given this, I (Radhi) planned a quick two-day trip down to the coast in Almería with friends visiting from the U.S. Most locals recommend a visit to the beaches of Cabo de Gata but no one said anything about visiting Almería the city. In the end I found a great hotel deal in the historic center so we opted for a quick day-trip to the beach, with the rest of our time spent in town.

So you can probably tell by my last handful of posts that I’ve been experimenting with video. Here are my latest attempts, both filmed from the rooftop terrace of our house.
