Last month was the second time I had stayed in a house over in Ciudad Real. It was very nice and large for a home in Spain. With a large two car garage and four bedrooms there was plently of room for my family and a friend to come with. I stayed for two weeks and the first week may have been the worst of all my vacations to Spain. I was stuck at the house without being able to go out and visit my favorite spots.
The best part about it was I knew exactly how to fix the problem that made me stuck at the house. Yet I had no tools and no equipment to do it with. The garage door to the nice two car garage was completley stuck and would not open for nothing. A couple hinges broke and caused the door to jam.
In the states I could call a 24 hour garage door company to come and fix it. In Spain however this wasn’t as common to have those company’s around. After calling the travel agency and telling them the issue they said it would be four days before I could use the car. For a problem I knew how to fix!
I worked for this company garagedoorrepairmiddletownct.com for years and knew how to fix just about every problem there is with a garage door. I had all the skills with no tools and nothing to fix it. I could have bought another rental car but then I would have had to sacrifice nearly all of plans. I normally plan to relax in week two but this time it was week number one that I had all the relaxing done.
I have always considered moving to Ciudad Real but the majority of my family lives here in the states. I would love to be able to spend more time with my family that lives in Spain but it’s a much better idea for me to spend a few more years here in the United States. Although I do think about it often it never holds me back from continuing on with my life here.
I am a simple person that just likes to help the people in my area. I’ve worked as a hand for most of my life but it doesn’t bother me one bit. I see myself as helping people build thier dreams and that makes me feel great. I’ve worked for many different companies doing many different tasks. Here are just a few:
- Carpet cleaner
- Sales manager
- Security guard
- Military experience
- Garage door repair
- and a whole lot more.
I’ve been able to build fantastic relationships with so many different people here that it would be difficult to leave. I love my current job working for this company: www.deltonaflcarpetcleaning.com. The owner is the nicest man in the world and has given me a great pay rate in comparison to what I should make for the work.
I know that I can use my many skills to work in Spain but this is where my home is now and I plan on staying for a little while.

Most of the people in spain are incredable and very nice. From my experience vacationing there most people have these traits:
Honestly the people of spain are the main reason why I go there so much. Even though I can only visit annually they always greet me like a family member. Everytime I go back I don’t want to leave.

It all started back in 1992 when my mother and father both had saved up for many years to go on a vacation in spain. I was a young boy at the time and of course road along with them. Being that I was an only child it was easy for them to take me.
Thinking about it now, if that vacation wasn’t as good as it was then I likely wouldn’t have the experiences I have today. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth and was no way spoiled. My parents saved for years for this vacation and made sure that it was wonderful. We stayed in a cheap hotel and ate on as little money as possible. because of this we were able to go out and enjoy spain like it should be enjoyed.
I have always been sort of a family history buff and being that my father was actually from spain. My grandfather still lived in Ciudad Real and visiting him is always a blessing. He had so much information and stories to tell about that side of my family that every time I went I couldn’t stand to leave.
If you’re interested in visiting spain then this place may be right for you. I’m not rich nor poor but I can afford to make my annual trip to visit my family history and enjoy my childhood vacation spot. Check out this travel guide for more info.
