Fishing is part of the locals way of life and tradition.
Plus English is widely understood and spoken in almost every shop, office and business.
You really should come south.
The only negative for you would be that rental costs will be higher and less availability of long term rentals.

I got a confirmation email a few days after sending my docs, and the package arrived about 6 weeks after that.
I had to pay the duty and iva at the post office on picking it up.

When it's more than about E20, it gets the customs ritual; you'd better not be in a hurry!
In my case I went in knowing this, but it still got me stressed out. I don't need the item until 2 weeks from now, and I did order it 4 months in advance, as it was 1/4 the price it would have cost from an EU source.
Mostly, I only order really small items from beyond the EU; special screws and stuff like that.

Mine was $22.21. The $20.00 one went through for free though. So it seems like they work in $ for outside the EU or it depends on the mood of the official.

Just received a UK EBay buy , exactly same product as purchased & sent by seller thru UK PO & GLS.
It only took 8 day's to arrive.
Why :- I bought from a seller who sent it by
" Royal Mail International Standard" (Small Packets)

p.s. No phone number required

SEUR :- Purchased product online from a PT WS which turned out to be a Spanish Cº
Paid by PayPal , filled in ALL the requested info including my mobile Nº & Paid for delivery by Seur.
Rec'd mail from Seur - Delivery 24th.
Checked Seur site again - Delivery now 25th ?
Checked Seur site late yesterday
" Non Delivery no body home" in Spanish
Now it get's interesting
Phoned Seur HQ in Lisboa :-Gave delivery cargo Nº &

"Why did your driver report that no body was home, when I was all day?"

"What is your address"

"But you already have it on the cargo doc's"

"Please confirm your address"

Which I did

To which the lady on the other end said

"But the driver could not find your address"

The conversation deteriorated rather quickly after this comment.

I love this country , but this kind off BS & could not care less attitude as I'm going to get paid anyway really get's my back up !
