I have been reading a lot of the things that people have been writing on these websites over the last few months and it has made me think twice as to coming to Spain to live, as it does not seem to be that much better than life in the U.K just thought I would ask a direct question to all on this forum.
My question is "if you had your time again and knowing what you know now would you move to Spain?"

I have only been here for a few months so I am sure I do not have much advise I can give, only to say that its hard to start with but everyone is so helpful all the expats seem to stick together and are there to help, After 6 months Spain is already our home.

I guess for us who have been here five years, and more, the adventure has taken some twists and turns, but the positive side is that when we arrived there were a lot of dead beats and so called professionals who had reinvented themselves and made a lot of money from the then innocent Brits. I only wish we had sites like this one up and running so that we would not have been ripped off by these vagabonds who have now milked the honey pot dry and moved on.

In answer to your question, If I could turn back the clock to that Sunday in February 2007 when I first arrived to start my new life here in Spain. I might do things differently, but I have no regrets moving here. I have seen many changes but the best part is that now the people who have stayed here and made it their home despite the hard times, are the true lovers of the spirit that is Spain.

Thank you for your posting, it will be interesting to see the points of view of others .
