It was awful... all the delayed flights hit the terminal at once, so like 1000 ppl trying to check in at the same time... it might have been more... got there super early because was told it would be a madhouse. 6 hours in line, 2 hour delay, 7 hour flight, then another 2 hours probably to get checked into temporary lodging.

However.... omg its as good as I remember it here. Air is fresh, its 60 degrees out, sunny, walking around in gym shorts, t shirt and sandals. People meeting us were great, the key spouse had care packages all loaded up with snacks and a few groceries, pets all made it safe and I'm just relaxing mindlessly on the internets with a few beers and first actual meal in like 48 hours since we were living off lean pockets and ramen in the hotel in Virginia...

Will post pics up later or tomorrow. Going to look at homes this weekend and will see about getting a ride to Jerez to get a long term rental car. During off-peak months (now) its like $300USD for a pretty nice car per month. That's like basically leasing... I'll take it till the stang gets here and I get a beater.

At first I was thinking, "Beer already?!?" I've barely had coffee and it is only lunchtime on the east coast! Haha. Gonna have to readjust for the time difference!

Nice!
I'm so glad that this all worked out for you and your family Scotty. I hope that all of you thoroughly enjoy your time together while you are there.

Lol yeah its 6 hours ahead. And I'm getting over jet lag finally.

Got a rental VW Golf for a month. Little 4 banger 6 speed stick and I DEFINITELY made the right choice setting the stang up for handling here... 0 traffic lights, ALL roundabouts, LOTS of curves and exits. Thing is going to be ridiculous on these roads. Can't wait.

Also fighting the cell phones. Well... my wife's iphone went onto the towers here just fine and oddly enough so did my daughter's cheap Samsung J3. No LTE for it but the HSPA+ speeds out here are like 15/5 without LTE so she is fine. My $$$ LG V20 of course only can do talk and texts... Looks like I'm going to be Amazoning an unlocked mid level $200 phone out here...

Oh, that's something else. Cell phone plans are STUPID cheap here. 5 euro a month for a 1GB plan for my kid, 10 Euro for a 2GB plan for the wife and 20 Euro for 10 gigs for me. Speeds are awesome, I just need a phone that works on the 4G frequencies out here. What I get for having Sprint in the US lol.

Everything regarding telecommunications in Europe is super cheap compared to the US.

I have a cousin who just came back from living in Madrid for the past few years and she said she paid around €80/month for 500Mbps fiber internet with no caps, a landline with unlimited data, cell phone with unlimited talk/text and 4GB of data and was able to use her Samsung phone she had from living here in the states.

All of that under a single plan for less than $100/month. She also said she never had any issues with downtime on anything.

She also said, nearly everyone in Europe is extremely pleasant as long as you make an attempt to abide by their culture, customs and etiquette.

Lol, nah. Maybe wearing speedos at the pool/beach instead? Jk jk... ow...

I think one of the things you notice is that there are literally 0 trucks on the road besides the odd actual like Semi or work truck. No pickups, no SUVs, no minivans except for those brought by Americans. Its literally 80% hatchbacks, 15% sedans, 5% everything else. I mean around here as far as I've seen. I didn't pay much attention to this stuff when I was flying tbth...

As far as the communications, yeah we are on like... I guess their version of Boost Mobile out here except it doesn't suck. That is just for right now. I'll see what prices I get for bundles out here but yeah I know my total communications bill is going to be 100 Euro or less all told. Paying 35 Euro right now for a way way WAY better plan and speeds than I was paying $80 for on Sprint and that was before phone costs. Going to assume when I get a bundle with Vodafone, Movistar or Orange I'm going to be paying even less than that for better but I need a NIE number (spanish green card basically) and a Spanish bank account (can't get till I get a NIE) before I can do that. Plus a house...

Seeing houses tomorrow. Ordered a new phone on Amazon that should be here in 8-10 days... Waiting for the stang to show up in the shipping tracking.
