Moved to Spain 7 years ago, although we miss the family, we do not regret the move one bit. The family visit regularly which makes up for not seeing them on a daily basis. We live in a tiny spanish village and have a variety of neighbours, Spanish (7) English (2), Italian (1) and Dutch (1). Learning the language takes a while, but the spanish will meet you half way as long as they see you are trying to fit in, and are most generous with their help and time. We are interested in what is going on in the UK, because our family is still there and how they may be affected. We enjoy meeting up with friends here and from the UK,- and love it when the family visit.
