Just joined  tonight.

We have a house Nr Competa, which we are planning to move to full time over the summer.

We have a little internet business which we can take with us and will cover some day to day costs.

However, the other one o us will need to find some sort of work even if only over the summer, we have over 30 years travel experience, so could work summers for incoming holiday makers for a tour operator.

We will really only need living costs as we will not have a mortgage.

Does anyone have any ideas or helpful tips on what we can do and what we need to do. We are also looking at a self drive van or the items we are taking with us, as the house in Spain is already partly furnished out. We are really open to any kind of work, and hours don't really bother us. Over the years  when we started our own business in the UK, we also worked in Hotels, restaurants and bars till all hours just to live. We know we are starting all over again, just this time we know what we are aiming for.

Any other suggestions that would make the move a little less stressful would be very appreciated please. We will also need a new group of friends, although we have made a few over the years we have had the house, when over or holidays etc. we do need to brush up on my schoolboy Spanish, maybe join a garden club, as help with the plot is required, along with just having people we can have some fun with and start enjoying life. after all we are not getting any younger. So anyone who knows of any groups not just English but local ones as well please.


Many thanks

Can't help you with regards to friends and stuff in the area but in terms of earning money you certainly sound resourceful so you may just be ok ;)

It is tough but I was just wondering when you say that you have a small internet business, is that not something you could expand and grow?  Or duplicate in another way to make more money out of it?  That would seem like the easiest thing to do seeing as you are actually already doing this and you have experience in generating money online.

Best of luck with the move!

TBE - I have been going to Competa for over 25 years - a lovely village!  I'll send you a pm with a link to a good local web site which has lots of gossip.  If you already have a working web site - as suggested below, you could grow that.  It is tough but do try the tour operators - probably too late this year as they will have their guides in place.  If you are walkers and want to lead walking tours I have loads of information including walks on a DVD.
