Life in Spain
Spain is certainly known for its great quality of life and not many countries can compete. In Spain people work to live and not live to work. Each day of the week you can find colleagues, friends all gathering in a local bar or restaurant for a meal and a drink. Socialising with counterparts is a very important part of Spanish norms. You will find yourself out and about enjoying life going to new places and meeting new people. The sun in the summer helps further with the sunset in some parts
in some parts being at 10pm making your day longer to do more after a day of studies or work. Expect to live a stress free life in Spain, everyone is very relaxed and easy going, you won't see anyone in a rush, everyone seems to be enjoying life more than worrying about anything which may be present. It certainly is a care-free living culture. Wherever you find yourself in Spain you are well connected to other cities to visit and travel, the trains are easy to use and very quick or why not hire a car for a weekend trip embracing its history. Living in Spain is considered a dream for many as they imagine strolls along ancient cobbled streets, flamenco and music playing in the background drinking a glass of Rioja al fresco. Imagine yourself getting lost in historical ancient cities and towns gazing at those spectacular churches as the bells ring or laying on one of Spain's sandy beaches watching the sunset on the Mediterranean. All these thoughts and imaginations come true in this marvellous country, it is of no surprise this country is one of the most visited in the world.
