we have heard a lot about the decline of spains good life here are some of the good things

1,weather, the weather here is normaly warmer and the humidity is lower great if you have arthrituslike me.

2,staple food prices are lower yes its true BUT if you want imported food you will pay extra.

3, feul prices gas and petrolium products are about 8% cheaper than uk yes its true.

4, crime rates are lower than uk yes there is grafiti but not to the uks extent crimes against the person are lower but of note is the newest growth area is bank robbery and im not talking about the latest bonus rates.

5, if you move into the interior you will meet people that are honest friendly and caring yes there are crooks here but they are a minority who seem to congregate on the coast and prey on all expats.

5, in england we used to moan about people not speaking our language now were in spain how do you think they feel when we refuse to speak spanish on the costas you can get away with no spanish,WHY?

thats a start have you any good news or any bad.

Another good thing are the lack of carpets ( great for allergy sufferers) and lack of HOUSE SPIDERS...haven't seen any in Marbella and I'm very happy about that!

many thanks anna now a few more good things about spain
6, The enviroment spain has many climates ranging from the heat of andalucia to the temperate climate of galicia room for all tastes.
7, Health in spain they have a health service that is second to none, with one big differance you help to nurse your relative not the nurses unless you are alone then they will becuse in spain they have extended familys you remember them.
8, Family life one of my first memorys of spain was in gandia where a elderly lady was cooking a large piella for her extended family it made me a spanish convert how i missed my mother cooking.
9, The food and drink in all parts of spain there are many differant regional foods and wines i do my best to try them all
what i do not do is pay exorbitant prices for english food if i wanted roast beef and egg and chips i would stay in london .
thats a few more good things about spain and more to com.
