Well done, Johnny. That's exciting news. If you can hang on to the quid for a while and rent you should be able to buy something nice in Spain. Oh, those lovely sunny winters by the sea Surprised

Do you know the online newspaper "Sur in English" -it is a good read to keep up with Spanish news. Which part will you go to?

I have Sur in english bookmarked so I'm keeping myself informed. I'm off to a very small town called Frigilliana.

"Some climb a mountain,
some jump in a lake,
some head off to Frigilliana,
but I head down to Lisdoonvarna....." Christy Moore.

Its in the Seirra Almijara mountain range about 1 hours drive east of Malaga and about 20 minutes from the coast at Nerja.

Watch words for the next 12 months will be "Health & Education". Swimming and Walking most days and Spanish lessons five days a week for 6 months in the local institutio Cervates. I'll be living hand to mouth for a year but when the sun is shining, the mountains are calling, who cares...... Smile

Just noticed this. I expect spanish prices to continue going down and down. Anyway now is a good time to buy. Perhaps a year down the line will be even better - who knows.

Spain is great really. Mind theres practically no law and order here, unless you are unlucky to meet the remnants of the Francoist state - the Guardia Civil.
I'm in the Alicante area and while I dont know how things are in Andalucia let me know if you have any questions or if i can help in any way. Basically the key to Spain is to be "enchufado". Auditor will know what I mean.


Great. Thanks for the offer. I'll be online here too so I will post any strange things. Right now I'm just looking forward to a new start. It'll be mad for the next few months but I will keep you all posted I hope.

No probs. Sometimes I'm dead busy and dont post for days, so send a post or something if you need to know anything.

Qué tengas mucha suerte en España!

Malaga is a nice spot, hoping to get out there before Christmas. Although it will be to Fuengirola which is not quite as lush as Malaga. Free accommodation though - God bless the Granny and her bargain spotting 20 odd years ago.

Um no. You did it seems though. Spanish kids eh - full of life and possessing the hoarsest of voices from the age of 5 as if they'd already smoked 10,000 cigarettes.

Perhaps you could write a best selling handbook on how to sell your house in a recession ?

Well Cactus, I've done it; by lowering the asking price.

I got a buyer at €400,000 today and its propably as good as it gets in the current climate.
So I'm off to the sun for a few years come January.
I worked thru the last recession when all my mates emigrated. This time its my turn but at least I'll have a few quid in my pocket. Smile

Hasta la Vista, baby......

Comhgairdgeas a Sheáin, beir bua agus tabhair aire sa Spáinn. cheers

Probably by breathing their parents second hand smoke. The midwives in Spain still say its ok to cut down to 5 a day and consequently you still see a lot of pregnant mothers smoking which is risable..and sad as well.

Auditor, no lunnies in my house. Only English speaking cartoons.

This is my last post for alittle while.
I'm about to unplug the PC, have a cup of tea, and lock the front door.

I'm off to live in Spain on Sunday but I will be keeping in touch once I settle in.

Best of luck to all at Machine Nation. I'll send you a photo of the sunburnt PD in due course. Smile

As outside of the Little Englands which punctuate the coastline you'll be hard-pressed to find a good cup of tea in that coffee-benighted region of the world.

If you had timed it really well you could probably have sold here, moved there for a couple of years, moved back and bought your house back again and still made a profit Smile.

House prices in Spain are projected to go down by two thirds. Johnny won't need to come back. Sad

I'm still a bit bedazzled by the speed of it all. Only three pages ago the house was on sale - and now it's gone and so is he.
