buena pregunta, se me ocurren sólo compañias de transporte urgente o de mudanzas internacionales, qué tal un contenedor Maersk para enviar por barco.

Good question, I can only think of courier services and international forwarders. How about Ocean shipment in a Maersk container?

Terechu's container idea might make sense. How much volume and weight do you have?

Dealing with belongings is one detail that always gives me pause. I usually end up thinking that it would be best to thin out what I own and radically so.

--------------------------

La idea de Terechu sobre el contenedor podría tener sentido. ¿Cuánto volumen y peso tienes?

Tratar sobre mis pertenencias es un detalle que siempre me da pausa. Generalmente acabo a la realización de que sería mejor quitar de la mayoría lo que tengo de una manera radical.

art, esto es mi grito de guerra. nunca tenía más primero. pero ahora tiro casi todo { ¿free-fall? }. sólo quiero traer pocas herramientas, que necesitaré de todos modos en asturias para restaurar una choza, y sería tonto a echarles aquí y entonces comprarles allá de nuevo. además hay ropa y libros que no podría reponer. tambien mis moldes favoritos { hierro fundido } par hornear pan. { voy a llevar la bici con el remolque y el tienta, el saco de domir, las botas, la mochila, el portátil, etc etc por el avión cuando volaré } por lo tanto, tal vez, en todo, tengo aproximadamente 100-150 kilos para transportar antes. ya empezaba buscar por soluciones, y la más baratas que encontraba es vía USPS:

cobran $54 por 20 lbs, pero los tamaños son muy restrictivo { 12-1/4" x 12-1/4" x 6"}. continuaré a buscar. tschüß, tabula rasa, peter

It sounds like you're doing a good job of paring down. That's got to be painful.

What if you traveled to Spain via boat? Maybe you could take a crate with you that way? You could even work on a ship on the way over, perhaps. Or maybe I'm thinking 18th century thoughts.

------------------------

Parece que estás haciendo muy bien en reducir tus cosas. Éste debe ser doloroso.

¿Qué pasa si viajas a España por mar? Tal vez podrías llevar contigo una caja en este manera? Puedes incluso trabajar en el buque quizás. O tal vez estoy pensando pensamientos del siglo 18.

Niemandsland--Go to the post office and ask for M bags. They used to be only good for shipping books abroad in a kind of bulk rate, but now you can pack whatever you want into them. All you need are sturdy boxes (duct-tape the corners and seams). Then take it to the post office and they put it into a canvas-type M-bag. It took my M-bags less than 2 weeks to get to Paris from DC and the cost was about $140 for 3.

Ah, that's a real deal, Is. And it doesn't matter how much they weigh?

------------------

Qué ganga, Is. ¿Y no importa el peso?

Yes it does. The M-bags aren't meant to pack an espresso-maker, but books, clothes and odds and ends. One of the M-bag boxes I sent was a HP printer and a bedcover, which cost less than $50 to ship.

For real bulk, you'd have to go UPS or FedEx. In that case, get ready to pay $350 for exporting a bicycle, for example. You'll also need an appraisal from a bike shop as to how much it's worth.

hola art, en realidad, no, no es doloroso. casi es lo contrario. "small is beautiful", dijo schumacher. puedes sustituir "pequeño" con "poco", creo. pero, sí, el principio de mi transición va a estar *interesante*, por no decir más.

la ultima vez hablaba con la aerolínea me decían que costará alrededor cien dolares por una bici { tengo que quitar los pedal y hacer girar el manillar. se puede chequear hasta 50 lbs. entonce voy a tratar a incluir el remolque que acabo de encargar desde canada . necesitaré la bici de todas maneras cuando aterrizar en asturias en abril}.

This may be a deal on going by ship.
