The fantastic weather
While it does rain in Spain occasionally, the country experiencing an encouraging climate for most of the year. Indeed, average temperatures are, usually, well over 28 degrees Celsius. That means people can leave their winter coats at home in the UK because they’re not going to need them. Better climates, usually, mean better overall health, which is why so many retired people have been choosing to emigrate to this nation.
The tasty food
Spanish cuisine in second to none. Food prices are also very cheap, which means a meal at a top restaurant is not going to cost the earth. Dishes like Zarangollo, Tumbet and Tortilla de patatas are available from almost every food business in the country. There are also some amazing food markets where people can purchase fresh goods and make their own.
The laid-back lifestyle
The number of jobs available in Spain has increased in recent times. Still, most people emigrate to this country with the intention of spending their days relaxing in the sunshine. Indeed, that is why so many people over the age of 65 opt to move here. Even if people do plan to work and earn a living, the lifestyle is so much more laid-back than at home. People are usually home from their jobs by mid-afternoon, and so there is lots of time for socialising and spending time with the family.
