How to buy property in Spain
Planning to buy a property in Spain? Maybe it's a future ambition to own your dream Spanish home. Whatever the case, this episode will give you a detailed insight into buying a house or apartment in Spain and is packed with practical advice on buying in Spain. It's a meaty subject so I decided to enlist Spanish property consultant Felix Joseph who shares his expert advice. Felix runs his own property consultancy on the Costa del Sol called Property Under One Roof. He's also written a book called How to Buy a Property in Spain: everything they wont tell you about buying a property in Spain. Felix first caught the property bug at a young age when his father unfurled the plans for a house he was going to buy in his native Caribbean. Felix studied an economics degree and then worked in IT for 15 years before investing in property in the UK and building up his own property portfolio which allowed him to semi-retire to Spain with his family. In 2002 he left IT to set up his real estate company ‘Property Under One Roof’ and then moved to Spain in 2006 and pivoted into property consultancy where he offers a wholistic service for people from outside Spain looking to buy. In the this episode we look at: The paperwork you need to get in order in order to be ready to buy property in Spain, such as a fiscal ID number (NIE)  Whether now is a good time to buy property in Spain or not in light of the situation with Covid 19 and for British citizens, Brexit.  The costs associated with buying property in Spain. The property purchasing process in Spain and legal issues involved.  Mortgages and financing options for buying property in Spain.  The Golden Visa How to find a property in Spain Taxes Sage advice and what pitfalls to watch out for when buying property in Spain. Plus a few questions that When in Spain listeners sent in.

Do you have dreams of long-term travel? What are you willing to "give up" in pursuit of it? Today's guest is Becca Hall who shares how she gave up a high paying corporate job for a life of indefinite travel. This is another episode in my series called Transition To Travel where we speak to the guest right before they leave to start traveling and then again at least a year or more into the journey. Becca shares the psychology of why she pretended to not have any money, how she cut back to save up for this lifestyle of travel, what she would do differently if she could back in time, and tips and tricks for fellow solo female travelers out there. This is only a small amount of everything we get into today so grab your favorite beverage, relax, and enjoy my honest and very real chat with Becca Hall.

Wildlife Cameraman, Gavin Thurston - Long Haul
Today, I’m joined by multi BAFTA & Emmy-winning wildlife cameraman, Gavin Thurston. Over the last 37 years, Gavin has worked on some of the most famous nature documentaries ever made, like Planet Earth and Blue Planet, most often with his long time collaborator, Sir David Attenborough.  Gavin, ordinarily, spends most of the year travelling, and he’s covered every corner of the globe - its deserts, polar ice caps and deepest sea. He’s a fantastic raconteur, so this had to be a “long haul” feature length episode.  We talk about his incredibly close shave while filming gorillas in the Congo, what it’s like to be the very first person to see and film previously undiscovered new species of wildlife and film them, the terrifying time his submersible failed at 1000m deep below sea level, and what it’s like spending so much time working with the legend that is Sir David Attenborough. All that and much more coming up on The Travel Diaries.  Destination Recap: * Durdle Door, Dorset, England * Devon Coast, England * Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park, Republic of Congo * Hallo Bay, Katmai National Park, Alaska, USA * Sumatra, Indonesia * Costa Rica * Antarctica * Turkmenistan * England Gavin’s book ‘Journeys in the Wild - The Secret Life of a Cameraman’ is out now. You can follow him on Instagram @thegavinthurston.  You can find out more about The Nautilus Maldives here. If you’re enjoying the podcast, then it would wonderful if you could leave a rating or a review - it really makes a big difference because it helps other people to discover the podcast.  To hear future episodes as soon as they are released just search for The Travel Diaries on your podcast app of choice, and hit subscribe.  To find out who’s joining me on next week’s episode, come and follow me on Instagram, I’m @hollyrubenstein - I’d love to hear from you.  If you can’t wait until then, there’s always the first three seasons to catch up on, from Michael Palin to Rick Stein, and Poppy Delevingne to Raymond Blanc.  Thank you so much for listening, and I’ll be back next week.  Today’s episode was recorded during the UK’s Covid-19 lockdown.
