What seems to attract most of us is the thought of the glorious weather and how nice it would be to wake up every morning to the sunshine but remember, this will eventually ware off and you will take it for granted, so ask yourself would you really be happy living in a hot climate? (I’ll bet you answer a definite YES to that!)
Strange as it may seem, although the sun is fantastic in the beginning every so often most of us yearn to see a cloud and some ice cold rain in your face.

One thing’s for sure, living in Spain is a complete change of lifestyle for the better but it’s not a holiday, you should think really carefully about it.
