Hello, we are Carole and Dave, recently moved to Camposol in February.
We are British, although we moved here from Canada after 16 years, to retire. 
We have 3 grown up children and an adorable grandson. 
We are loving it here (especially since it has finally stopped raining) lol and we are looking forward to exploring the area and meeting and making new friends :) 🧡🇪🇸

Welcome, i`m sure you will love it here, I personally have no intention of going back to an unhealthy overcrowded Uk thats for sure, I have been here for four years now and just loving the life I could not afford in England.

Thank you Roy, we are already loving it here :)

It feels like a very friendly, welcoming community. Can’t see us wanting to move anywhere else either. Thank you for the welcome! :)

Hi Carol

Just dropping a note to say I understand your feeling as we to are thinking of retiring to Spain but are moving area as we had a holiday home in Marbella go 20 years but realised we did not want to retire there so sold to look around Spain and with Brexit needed a Visa but Covid-19 prevented 3 years of looking.

We are now able to book 3 months to tour an area . We went to the caves in Granada and stayed 1 month and had to get back Too cold if we are moving we would like the sun more regularly .

So we have decided to explore the Almeria Murcia area.

Is this where you are?

Would like your opinion of it as a place to retire.?

I too have grown up children no grandchildren but both over 30 so who knows 

I am trying to learn Spanish but it is not easy.☹️
we are not able to get out until  Xmas to spend 3 months looking so need any possible places to investigate 

Hope to hear back how you settle in

Sue Guest

Moving to Spain!!

Hi caroolepage.

Again welcome, particularly to our community.

Lovely to have you and your family  aboard, my advice, if you wish to heed it is.

Get settled first, then get out and about meet and talk to people, find a place you both, or all like, your face will start to be noticed then more and more people will start chatting to you.

I would say its taken us 18 months to be considered as regulars at where we go.

But, dont find that daunting, thats just the way we did it.

Anyhow hope some time we may meet, who knows, but welcome and enjoy, we do.

G.
