    Bad points. There is not a lot of work there. Good points. It’s not Cyprus and it has nice weather and loads of cheap bars and restaurants.

    Have you got enough money to live for a year without income,knowing that food from supermarkets is expensive compared with the uk,and renting an apartment is not cheap and are you both fluent in Spanish ?????

    Tom is it hard to look for work out there or is it just that there
    Isn’t any work mate thank you

    Dave we haven’t got enough for the year it’s just we was going
    Get enough behind us to get an apartment and get a job out there
    Then go from there mate.

    Rhys. It depends what you want to do but the recession is affecting things over there as well as back home. I would have thought there was little bar work available as most owners are working themselves to make a profit. People still need handymen to do work on their villas etc but there are quite a few people doing that over there already. If it were me I would go out there for a couple of weeks and ask around and see what you can find. Don’t be put off by my reply as it’s a great place to live but it’s not paradise unless you have enough money.

    Its True finding work out there is hard and with the way things are going in general with Spain its only going to get harder, my partner and I did a lot of reserch in moving and working out there but for the forseeable future its no.
