Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Re: Cadiz?

Cádiz is fairly lively all year round, if you know where to go. There are some ex-pats that run intercambios. That would be a good idea to meet British people and meet Spaniards to improve your...

Re: Spanish languages

Go to a rural area in galica and ask them to speak castellano, they will oblige for a minute then revert back to galego/castrapo without realising it. This is mainly the middle-aged to older...

Re: Tell me what's really different.
