Good luck! Globetrotter on Dec 12, : Hello! We are a family of 3 who currently lives in Yaounde, Cameroon. We've been going around the globe as international educators. We're in fact finishing our African adventures in We fell in love with Valencia and we've decided to buy a property in Although, we're wondering if we can continue with our teaching careers in Valencia.
How possible is this? Would schools hire teachers with non-Spanish credentials? We hold French nationality. What would you say is a minimum wage for teachers in Spain? Thanks for your input! Sanne Wesselman on Aug 02, : This is actually quite accurate.
I live in Valencia myself originally from Holland and write a lot about moving to and living in Valencia on SpendLifeTraveling. Irina on Jun 12, : Can people answer me on several questions? What professions are demanded in Valencia and in Spain? Front end developers? Or nail technicians? Or baker? Or is there a job in hotels? Is Valencia safe city? Is there a refugees problem? Jaume on May 15, : Hi Jose. Which questions do you have about Valencia? Jose on Mar 18, : I am looking to get as much information about retirement in Europe, we are not set on the place yet and we are about 3 years from retirement.
BTW is there a way for a person from the US to live and roam in Europe - ideally living in one country for a year or so and moving to a new country to live for another year and continue this pattern till we have seen as much of Europe as we wish, or return to a country we like best? Thank you for any help you can give. JD on Feb 28, : smmr your comment does not make sense at all What papers we need and do they need to be stamp in the state we were born. Den on May 12, : No job?
This must be a joke for Valencia. For the sake of consistency, I am going to price out the same items as last year so we can get a clear picture. We mostly shop at Mercadona, the same supermarket we used in Seville. The difference is that we also shopped at a place called Mas which had cheaper prices for some items. There is a second supermarket close to us called Consum.
Overall, we spend more here for the same things which l found surprising. I think it might be because there is a bigger variety of seafood. We travel when we find good deals and it is easier to travel with E. U countries because of the numerous low cost airlines.
We buy fresh fruit and vegetables and also Spanish store brands. For the most part, we have found the brands here to be just as good as the American ones, with a few exceptions like BBQ sauce, and God, I really need some Blue Cheese dressing for my carrots and hot wings This is still considerable less than our monthly cost of living breakdown Malta vs U. If you are thinking about retiring in Valencia Spain, we hope you find this useful.

Very good to see your cost breakdown, I appreciate it. Glad to hear it Cheryl, and thanks for reading.
Considering that the quality of life as an early retiree is much more enjoyable than having to work if you lived in the States until at least age 65, living overseas is a no-brainer! Yeah, when l breathe deep and think about the prices we pay now, I realize how good we have it.
Having just shared a bottle of pure, fresh squeezed orange juice that was 0. S , I just smile. I would not trade it for the life of old for sure. No thank you! How can it be so different there? So much gouging. Interesting and pretty consistent with what we are paying in Split, Croatia: Euros rent, about Euros utilities but including internet and cable. I always pictured Croatia as being cheaper for some reason, not sure why.
Maybe l picture it like Prague where everyone says it is super cheap. Yeah, I think the fact that Federico cooks does make a lot of difference. I still remember how much l used to spend on eating out before l met him.
Literally hundreds a week in L. A because l never cooked.. I really love this type of articles! I know they did go up a bit here since last year, but not by much. Living within walking distance to everything is certainly an advantage. Plus, it helps you stay a bit more fit than if you just jump into the car and head somewhere — even minutes for each shopping trip matter and add up.
I am also surprised to see how cheap public transportation is in Valencia. Thanks so much C! I was having so much problems with the older one. Even though l liked it, they had so many frequent updates that always solves one problem and brings on another that was damaging to the site and l would unaware of.
I have more problems with paid ones than the free ones.. Hopefully this will be much more stable and better. I was also surprised at the cheapness of Metro prices. I remember it being more in Barcelona and Madrid and Sevilla also. The taxi prices are less than half of Seville.
I definitely love being able to walk everywhere and will love it more in the fall and winter… I am looking forward to checking the metro in Bucharest I love this type of post, it is fascinating to see what people do with their cash. Brian and I have never been very good at tracking down our expenses, but it is something we will need to get better at once we retire. Valencia sounds like a great place to live, the cost of living is very reasonable for the great quality of life you get.
Definitely good value for money. Having your very own manicurist is quite a luxury, here in the UK to have your nails done cost a lot, so I tend to go for a DIY, often a bit of a disaster. I like your new blog design, it is more user friendly and looks great :.
Thanks Gilda. I think you start to pay more attention to it once you retire, even without trying I love having the manicurist. She is a one woman operation. The price is unbeatable, so she is very popular. I go for clear polish then.
I hope the blog design stays put. So many freaking updates with the old one that kept breaking and not showing whole pages. They say this is more stable.
Hi Kemkem. It is always so useful to see the cost breakdowns, and yours is a very practical one. We have only been living here in Lagos for a month now but are starting to get a handle on our expenses. Overall it seems that the prices are quite similar to what you are paying.
Accommodations here can be quite high and for a 2 bedroom in the Algarve you are looking at euro or more, but much less expensive in the northern and rural areas. Groceries are about the same and as long as you stick local very reasonable. Love that you include wine with your groceries!
The internet and television packages here seem a little lower 60 euro for a similar one , taxis a bit higher but car insurance and medical coverage seem a bit lower.
Hello there newly minted expats! I know you guys are having fun in Lagos and we are looking forward to seeing you soon. Used cars are also very expensive in Spain. One of the reasons we had the car brought here from Rome. I still marvel at the difference in prices on a daily basis.
I know the rent is higher for you there because it is quite the tourist destination and an eternal favorite with the British people. Oh wine is a must.. Must keep the heart in check Pretty sure the package is higher because he has his football package which started out as 10 euros extra and quickly grew from that with each league added.
So jealous of the lower medical coverage cost though. Shared this info with my husband. We both enjoyed it very much, especially finding it seems economically reasonable. Thanks and have a good week. Actually our television package is now the same as yours now because we also added a football package — and are loving it already!
The football got you! Federico hardly wants anything, but when it comes to football.. Now, I know about football way more than l had ever hoped to know See you soon!!! Berlin, as a West European capital city, is fairly cheap, but not where we live ho ho! We have a nail salon not far from our home, owned by a Vietnamese family. Most nail salons are owned by Vietnamese families in East Berlin. I find the Vietnamese ladies are much better, thorough, and offer cups of tea! Thanks Victoria! I really hope this design sticks.
If the free one had been able to handle what l wanted, I would have stuck with it and avoided the headaches, but sometimes you get what you pay for I know your area is fancy.
It certainly looked it when we toured Berlin. In Seville, the prices were more dear too, and the worst part is doing it in the mall, and you have to stand.. This lady is so good and runs a one woman operation so she is quite popular.
It can certainly cost a pretty penny…and no tea either Sounds like you both have settled nicely in Valencia. A total dork Love it. I am also super nosy. Enquiring minds need to know.. We are indeed settling in nicely here. I heard him say to someone we might even stay 3 years instead of the planned Cliche yes but so true.
I love the cliche. I only use eye shadow and one can last years.. I do like handbags, but even that is wearing off. That is a high price for a pedicure. I remember wanting one in London once and was shocked. I will splurge at a spa though as part of the whole day I saw a few pet friendly places along the coast between Valencia and Barcelona on Idealista and other websites but I wonder what public transportation is like along that coast and if we would need a car to get around.
It seems like it would be easier in The city as far as metro and bus go. What do you suggest as the method of settling there 1 Should we just go to a pet friendly airbnb place and begin our search once we get there or 2 should we start looking now and register with a property agent? It sure is more complicated for Americans than it is for the Brits. I once had an N. Is an NIE necessary to rent anything? I never went through the rental process because I just moved into the home of a Madrillena and paid her cash.
Way to lay it on me Anna :- ;-! Wish l knew how it popped up too so l could rinse and repeat! Congratulations to the hubby on the impending retirement.
It has to be an exciting time! I will try and answer the questions as much as l can. One thing is for sure, you would need a car to get around along the coast. It is extremely hard to find pet friendly places in the city, but that would be your best bet as far as ease to get around. Here is a post l wrote about finding a place around here. We are not quite in the center of town in the trendy area of Russafa, but we are about a 15 minute walk outside of the old town.
Your best bet would be to look for aticos or 1st floor flats as they usually have patios for the dogs. That being said, once they hear dogs, most landlords will hesitate. You are definitely wasting your time looking from afar. You should search with boots on the ground. Month to month would be more like AirBnB even though l have seen a couple of those. It used to be 6 months.
It will be way more difficult to find an apartment close to summer. Very popular time here. Fallas festival also makes things wicked hard in March. No rooms to be had. We started our search then and it was frustrating as the whole city shuts down. Your N. E number never changes so if you still have it, you can use it..
We did that. Some also ask for the bank guarantee which we refuse to do. We rented an Airbnb in Jesus and it was okay, will be checking out Patraix soon as we are looking to move, way too big for just us 2 and 2 dogs, but we love the area and would love to find a smaller place here. Also good and better chances of pet friendliness and a bit lower prices and more space. Benicalap is just a wee bit further out and quieter.
