Reader Letters – Thank you Alan for emailing us.

“We have lived in Spain for 22 years and never had any regrets, the people are warm, friendly and kind, and are always there to help when you need it. You do need to be able to speak the language to be able to be a part of life here and not live as an expat foreigner.

We do not drink or smoke but still enjoy the life here with our Spanish friends, we do not have any English friends at all, we have friends from all nationalities except England. English people try and reinvent themselves when they come here, can’t find any work and drink to the point of ending up alcoholic, they do not understand the differences in the culture and expect Spain to be England in the Sun.

We live in Alicante City which has many visitors from all over the world. No way would be ever go back to the UK and leave Spain, it is our home.”
