The Spain guide

Latest articles

Studying in Spain is a great opportunity to learn the third most spoken language in the world, and enjoy a vibrant student life in a Mediterranean atmosphere. The country provides a quality education within over 80 universities, as well as technical, polytechnic and engineering schools. Did you know that Spain’s best known business schools IE, IESE and ESADE rank year after year among the world’s top 20 for their MBA’s?

During your stay in Spain, you will most likely use public transport to get from one place to another, whether to go to work or to visit the country during your leisure time. Spain has different modes of transport: plane, train, subway, bus, etc., which you can choose from according to your needs. You can also travel by taxi, or rent a car or scooter if you have a valid driver's license. Tourist transport is available in major cities, such as tourist trains and coaches.

Spain is known as one of the best European countries when it comes to life/work balance. With its “no pasa nada” (don’t worry about it) attitude, sunny Mediterranean climate, and fantastic landscapes, Spain is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe and the world.

If you are about to move to Spain with your family, you are likely to have queries about your children's education, especially if they are younger than 5 years old. They will be eligible for the Spanish childcare system. In fact, you are likely to find nurseries, kindergartens and child care centres in all Spanish cities. But above all, you have to be aware of your parenting responsibilities and enquire about the country's education system.

Moving to a foreign country with your pet requires proper planning. If you wish to travel to Spain, regardless of the length of your trip, it is best to enquire about pet importation conditions beforehand. Legally, only dogs, cats and ferrets are considered to be pets in Spain. Other specific regulations apply to the import of birds and other animals. You might have more information on it with your carrier and the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment. You may also ask your questions on the Spain forum.

Life in Culebrón

last month

Life in Culebrón is a disconnected series of pieces about the banal and ordinary of everyday life in an inland Alicante village seen from my very British perspective.
