One of the major things that people come over to Spain for is the Spanish lifestyle. What is it that actually constitutes the Spanish lifestyle though? Is it the cafe society of being able to sit outside a bar in a pavement cafe with a “cafe con leche” or a “caña” while watching the World go by and doing some serious people watching? Is it the laid back attitude to life and the constant surprise of yet another local holiday due to the fiesta of some unknown saint in the rest of the country? Is it the chance to relax in the sun or even the ability to go into work every day in the sun giving people a more positive attitude to their work when they get there?

100 Tips For Moving To Spain: Nº43 For Couples

Tip number 43 of our 100 tips for people moving to Spain is about couples.

No this is not a swingers’ post but it is about couples and when they are planning the move to Spain.
