  • A trip through Spain is one where you can ski in the mountains, bake on the costas, dance on the islands, stroll through the architecture and indulge in cavas everywhere.
  • Cities and islands spotting: Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Salamanca, San Sebastian, Malaga, Valencia and Granada.
  • Animal spotting: brown bear, Iberian ibex, irritating bedbug, Spanish lynx and black bull.

Studying in Spain

  • Study cities: Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, among others.
  • Language study: Barcelona, Seville, Salamanca, San Sebastian, Malaga, Valencia and Granada.

Internships in Spain

  • Internships: internships can be found in all sectors of society. The tourism sector has the most offers, even if your Spanish is not yet great.
  • Internship cities and islands: Barcelona, Ibiza, Madrid, Malaga Salamanca, Valencia.
  • Characteristics: the work culture is generally Mediterranean.

Volunteering in Spain

  • Volunteer projects: especially in the social sector, care and animal care.

Working in Spain

  • Jobs: temporary work can be found mainly in the hospitality and tourism sectors.

Working as a digital nomad in Spain

  • Favorite cities and islands: Alicante, Barcelona, Cadiz, Gran Canaria, La Palma, Ibiza, Mallorca, Malaga, Valencia.
  • Characteristics: great relaxed places where good life is often a bit more important than working life.

Living in Spain

  • Language: English is spoken almost everywhere but without Spanish you remain an outsider.
  • Health care: Generally of excellent quality. If you go to Spain as a pensionado check your insurance situation carefully.
  • Characteristics: The real Spanish atmosphere creates a culture where many expatriates, emigrants and working nomads quickly feel at home. Not everyone integrates as quickly, and some locations are very internationally oriented, but in general there is an ideal place for everyone. Don't be alarmed if you are overrun by the somewhat older winter visitors during the winter.
