After a year studying the Costa Brava , Costa del Sol, Costa de la Luz and finding too many tourists and expats - Alicante has more British expats living there than locals - we knew with certainty that my beloved Donostia/San Sebastian was where we wanted to make our permanent home.
The move would happen September 2019.
Then. We discovered:
The earliest meeting we could make with the Spanish Consulate in Los Angeles was October 21st.
It is now September 14th
Documents that are needed are time sensitive and if we don’t have them by October 21st we will need to begin all over again.
Eugene accidentally deleted a necessary document needed to obtain his birth certificate.
My recently updated passport doesn’t have my middle name.
Time is now ticking.
