Hi, after a long search of the world, from, South Africa, Grenada, Barbados, St Lucia, Florida, Cyprus, Portugal, Hawaii, we finally have settled on Spain. 
The weather, The People, Housing stock, International Schools, Health-Care, etc all looks good in comparison with most of the countries we looked at.
The only problem is BREXIT and how it affects us(Living in England) and moving abroad, especially Spain.
Both I and my wife are Ministers in an English speaking Christian Church here in UK and wonder, if anyone knows of any English speaking Churches in the Alicante area?
Our other profession is, we are both Social Workers for Children here in UK, but hope to open an English speaking Church and social activity club in Spain. Are we mad or have we lost the plot, your views please?

I was wondering if anyone in this thread who happens to live in ASTURIAS would like to play Ultimate Frisbee, or learn about ultimate frisbee or even throw frisbee in the park? **

Hi my name is Martin. I live in Austria for half of the year and in Spain for the other half. My business is providing information for British Expats regarding UK pensions. We are a completely independent site and don't offer advice. You can find free Spanish tax guides on our site as well as free information regarding the options British Expats have with their pensions. This of course includes the affects of Brexit and how that might impact you.

I will be posting an interesting article soon on how you can reduce your tax bill for anyone that is interested. Our goal is to provide unbiased information, not to sell you something.

If anyone is interested we can of course recommend one of the independent financial advisers we work with but we only work with UK chartered financial planners to ensure you receive the best advice.

I hope I can provide you all some useful information :)

Hi all.
A friend and I have bought a house in the beautiful Ricote Valley in Murcia. We're about to head over to see it for the first time since January! We'll be meeting with our agent and the building team to discuss the renovations.
I'm beyond excited.

Hello everyone!

Hi all,

Spain may well be the place to live the rest of my life.

I've just moved to Alicante for three months teaching English. I'm feeling a little lonely and I'd love to meet some fellow expats out here. Spain is beautiful but it's very different. The transport system is taking some getting used to and everything is very spaced out. Getting me down slightly as I keep getting lost and would love some friends out here :)


Hi, where are you teaching? We are looking to move by Villa martin and go to the International school near to it, any thoughts?
