The stunning city of Santa Fe (which means “holy faith” in Spanish) is the oldest city in the state of New Mexico and the oldest capital city in the whole of the United States. With almost three hundred galleries and dealers, the city is one of the largest art markets in the country and is also an important cultural, historical and artistic hub. The city boasts beautiful architecture, examples of which can be see in the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Loretto Chapel. Santa Fe has several interesting museums, such as the New Mexico Museum of Art, New Mexico History Museum and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, which is devoted entirely to the works of the hugely influential American artist. Expats may find they need time to adjust to Santa Fe’s climate. The winters are cold, but the summers are very hot, very often bringing monsoons. The performing arts scene in the city is very diverse and offers every type of entertainment, from dance to opera. All of this makes it easy to see why the beautiful city of Santa Fe attracts so many expats and tourists each and every year.
Those of you who have been through the process of relocating before will know that it can be fairly straight forward, as long as you prepare thoroughly. One thing you must ensure to decide upon is what size shipping container to use. One option is a 20-foot container, which can accommodate the contents of a 3-bedroom house. Another option is a 40-foot container, which can hold the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house along with a vehicle.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
