The Euro Weekly News is fascinated by the different life journeys of the many nationalities of expats who move to Spain, whether it be to start a business, for love, to enjoy the lifestyle or simply to make the most of the beautiful weather.

The story of British entrepreneur Jason Godwin, who moved to Spain’s Mijas in Andalucia in 1992, is a great example of a successful relocation to Spain:

“30 years ago, 12 July 1992, fell on a Sunday. A young man arrived to Malaga on a flight from Manchester. With very little money but rich in enthusiasm and ambition.”

“The past 30 years have flown by and have been an incredible adventure, most recently with the beautiful addition of Apricot Lottie Lee to my family.”

“I’ve loved every minute of it and can only wonder where the future will lead…”

We would love to hear more stories like Jason’s from our readers; so please tell us your stories; Why did you choose to move to Spain? Where did you move from? Where did you choose to go? How has life in Spain treated you? What is your favourite part about living in Spain?

Would you ever like to return home, or do you now consider Spain to be your home? Please send us your experiences!

      1980 I worked in Llorret de Mar,24 years of age.
      I chose Llorret because at 19 I went there on holiday with a friend and found three boys working there from my council estate.
      Loved the fact they were enjoying it so much so I took a sabbatical from being a motor vehicle technician and worked there for six months.
      I had found my paradise.
      It took a while to reach my goal but after working for Royal Mail on my return from Llorret my dream came true when I reached the age of forty seven! I took EVR from Royal Mail,sold up and headed for Spain to live out the rest of my good fortuned life with my beautiful wife Samantha and two, young seven and three year old children,Francesca and Elliot.
      We have now lived in Torrevieja,Spain,for almost nineteen years and have absolutely enjoyed every,second,minute,hour of every day.Our daughter is now a school teacher speaking Spanish and English with fluency after earning her degree at Alicante university and our son is now a trained Barber working at a renowned barbershop 💈!
      It is important to attempt to learn the Spanish language,Castellano, if you really want to
      integrate and begin to understand their culture and history, which is so interesting!
      Nearing retirement for myself now the next thing for me is to explore as much of this diverse beautiful country as I can.There is still so much I haven’t seen,especially on the northern side of Spain 🇪🇸
      I can ,with all sincerity say I don’t miss England one bit.A few friends and family maybe occasionally, but it has been a dream come true for us to have made the move to Spain all those years ago.
      Viva España 🇪🇸 and hopefully I’ll have many more years after retirement to explore more of this wonderful country and meet more wonderful Spanish people!
