Finding the truth in Spain
22 November 2008

Some of what will be written in this blog may have some of you old hands cringing in your chair and crying in your tea.

Some will question my naiveity, some may even question my sanity.

But for us, this has been a learning curve and an adventure and we expected no less. For all you who may want to jump in with "I could have told you so" or "did you not do your research" should remember that life is an adventure, and that man originally did not know that fire burned until he stuck his hand in it!

The truth in Spain is very difficult to find. Our first discovery soon after we arrived was to "believe very little of what you see and absolutely nothing of what you hear". If you contine down this road, you will not go far wrong.

Also believe that the vast majority of people over here, whether ex-pat or native Spanish, will try and rip you off as a new arrival, especially if you have a little cash to spend on a business venture.

Once you get your head around this concept it will make life here much more enjoyable and will relieve the strain of moving to a new country and new culture.

We have had many hiccups to iron out in the 6 short months we have been here. We are still not completely financially settled, but we love it here, and wild horses would not drag us back home t the UK.

I will start the story on my next post.
