Welcome to our latest newsletter with job vacancies in Spain, news updates and opinions from expats…
In case you didn’t know….
In Spain, no one speaks Spanish. Castellano refers to what most of us think of as Spanish, while more than five other languages flourish across the rest of Spain.

Life After Brexit – Thinking of Moving to Spain?
The UK national newspaper The Daily Express has just published a fairly shocking article using excerpts from our exclusive piece from Nick Anders, an expat based in Nerja (or at least he was).
The headline read: ‘Horrendous!’ British expat shares why he ‘hates’ living in Spain – ‘wish I never moved’
Now clearly the opinions were those of Nick’s – NOT OURS and a lot has changed in Spain since he wrote that piece for us – for the better obviously!
Perhaps you want to read the article and add your thoughts and comments at the bottom of the page to balance the negative views of Nick?

Spain, like almost every country, has its pros and cons. If you have a poor attitude you are going to be met with problems in every single country, even your home country.
If you are sad and depressed and moaning about life in one country, after the novelty of somewhere new wears off, your inner depression will make you hate the next country.
I’m from the UK and lived in the Canary Islands for 4 years, then moved to Ireland where I’ve been for just over a decade. Now about to move to mainland Spain and very much looking forward to it.
The one thing I disliked the most about living in Spain previously, was the negativity of a lot of depressed British immigrants who would love spending hour after hour complaining about how much better it was back home. My advice to anyone moving to any country, avoid negative people from all nations and surround yourself with positive people. Your experience will be greatly enriched as a result.
Well I’ve been in Spain now for 18 years and still enjoy my life here it’s not easy and if it was then everyone would be moving from the UK to here.
I agree with some of the points in this review but you know what the Sunsets the amazing people from all over the world the parties and not to mention the amazing selection of bars and restaurants offering good quality food and drinks at amazing prices and recently my little boy came of his bike and the medical care here was amazing so good in fact I cancelled my private insurance.
I know a lot of people come and go from Spain but believe me life is what you make it and Spain is a magical place …. you only live once and once is enough. My personal experience of Spain has been great and the people are amazing … if eventually I do have to go back to the UK I will always look back and think it’s been a great adventure rather than focusing on the negative as the reason why I had to leave.
My advice better to regret the things you have done than wonder if only … ☀️
