You mean swap work done, good suggestion, more time to sit in the sun, or be in the pub.

You are on a public forum ... if you make comments people are going to ask about them

There are a few posters on here that do live in the UK again now, so they may be able to help.
ands where can I find these posters?

I'm sorry....Are you implying that I am arrogant and racist from reading two obscure posts on an internet forum???

Perhaps it is best that it is your last post on the thread.

Roxy girl.....If you are contemplating moving to Spain....I would seriously think about considering alternative countries outside of the EU.....It is a busted flush...

Explain exactly what you want, I have homes in both countries

The OP already lives in Spain I think you'll find, and is doing research for college work.

Living in Spain I guess is down to the individual, some like it ... some don't

Move to any area of Spain without the language and you will run into difficulties, and I'm guessing the Costa Brava (apart from the tourist traps) will be no different

When youve finished your project please post it on this forum, I`m sure most of us will find it very interesting and my bet is there wont be a great deal of difference for the overall cost of living and remember most people only earn 1/2 to 2/3rds of a UK salary in Spain.

Good Luck

If it's a college project surely they would want more substantial evidence than nameless posters on a forum Anyway the op should be capable of doing a search on here there are lots of threads!

We found travelling around the Costa Brava that most menus were in Catalan and when offered in another language they preferred to give us a menu in English rather than one in Castallano.

Mitzy as the poster has two similar threads that may become misleading could they be amalgamated into one. It might help their research.
