If you really MUST try living in Spain then don’t sell your house in the UK, don’t burn all your bridges, try live in Spain for 6 months or 1 year by renting a house for that length of time.
Then you can truly decide and you can move back to the UK or wherever you came from originally without ruining your life. Editor’s note – This article is a reader’s opinion of life in Spain, it is not shared by us but it does represent the thinking of many people who currently live in Spain or of those who have subsequently moved back to their home country.
We do encourage you to carefully consider your decision in advance.
Remember that many expats absolutely love living in Spain.
When I go back to the UK I notice sales, discounts.The amount of tyres we go through because of holes in the road is ridiculous.There is no drainage so when it rains heavily places get flooded and roads are washed away.Corruption is a problem in Spain and often there are stories in the newspapers about local town hall officials being involved in shady/illegal deals. When I first moved to Spain the currency was the Peseta.The cost of living in Spain was low as most food and drink was cheap compared to northern Europe.
I figured that with so many expats living in Spain that there must be a bundle of potential new business opportunities or companies looking for staff. I soon found out that jobs and opportunities in Spain were few and far between apart from the obvious ones.
