When you think of Spain you may think of sunshine, summer holidays and sangria, however there’s a lot more to this country and it’s only a couple of hours from the UK.Since it’s close to home and has quite a high demand for English teachers we thought we’d give this country a go for a while.From mountains, beaches, medieval towns and a wonderful range of food, Spain really does seem to have it all. As always though, things never go exactly the way you plan and Spain didn’t turn out to be our perfect European base.
Just weeks ago we had what we thought was a decent plan. We’d nonchalantly rock up in Spain, score a nice apartment in Madrid, get some teaching work and build a life here. Now, after several weeks of continuous setbacks our plans have crumbled; we’re flying back to the UK next week and are contemplating a return to Asia in September.
