During her many years in Spain, Sally has moved several times, bought property, sold property, let out an apartment to tourists and currently rents an apartment. She says: "20 years as an expat have taught me many things and given me wonderful experiences, laughter, tears, friends and a very tolerant view of life. I have never regretted it, even in difficult times. I cannot imagine living any differently. I don’t think Brexit will stop people seeking a home in the sun, in fact it may make them all the more determined to find one."
Have you considered volunteering in Spain? Not only is it a highly rewarding and enriching experience, but it is a great way to meet new people, settle into your new life and can even help you to improve your Spanish.
Along with beautiful sunny weather, Spain is hugely famous for its delicious and flavoursome cuisine. So much so, that it features 32 times on the Opinionated About Dining (OAD)’s list of Europe’s Top 150 Restaurants – more than any other European Country.
Thanks to Spain’s glorious climate, one can enjoy water parks for most of the year. When you’ve had enough of days on the beach, they are very popular places to entertain the family, so living close to one is a bonus.
Barcelona is one of the world’s top tourist destinations owing to its unique location and architectural style, its culture and beaches. Prior to 1992 the city was somewhat in poor shape but when it was chosen to host the Olympic Games that year, a great refurbishment took place, making it a modern, vibrant city which today is not only a centre of tourism but where numerous foreign companies have set up offices.
