When in George Orwell—social conservative, Little Englander, intellectual cosmopolitan—hopefully envisioned an English socialist revolution, he assured his readers and himself that such a mere political event, like all such past convulsions, would prove no more than a surface disturbance. Rather, by its very nature—by its inherent logic, and by the ideology, aspirations, and world-historical forces from which it springs and to which it gives expression—it perforce obliterates that culture.
At least move to Spain with your eyes wide open — aware of all the negatives about living in Spain. Until I found out that often when people are burgled in Spain they are bound and gagged. The luckier ones are gassed. Even houses with dogs — and have you noticed how many people have big dogs — yeah now I get it — get hit because they poison the dogs.
Trouble is Spain is very close to some very poor African countries and there are lots of poor immigrants, mostly illegal, who will do anything to survive.
Living and Working in Spain I moved to Spain for a better life. I figured that with so many expats living in Spain that there must be a bundle of potential new business opportunities or companies looking for staff.
I was so wrong! I soon found out that jobs and opportunities in Spain were few and far between apart from the obvious ones. Fact — I hate villa cleaning, I hate cleaning pools, I hate working in bars until 2 am waiting for the last drunken expat to leave, I hate building work in the baking midday sun.
The Word Manana Like everyone else I thought this was a funny joke at first. Every time a person in Spain — whether Spanish or British let me down I would grin and say manana like it was ok or normal. Customer Service in Spain What I hate in Spain is when I go into a shop and stand waiting while the assistant chats away to their friend or relative totally ignoring me and everyone else.
There is NO customer service in Spain. Much of the time you are served when people feel like it, you get little help and assistance and often you are not even greeted at the counter — you greet them.
It is like you are doing them a favour by shopping there! I hate getting anything done in Spain. Often I end up going to the local town hall and being sent from one department to another where I am told conflicting advice.
The paperwork and bureaucracy is horrendous. If you are coming to live in Spain bring a photocopier! Everyone seems so desperate that getting cheated is a story every expat I know can tell.
Anything and I mean anything, can happen in Spain. When I first moved to Spain the currency was the Peseta. The cost of living in Spain was low as most food and drink was cheap compared to northern Europe. When I go back to the UK I notice sales, discounts. The amount of tyres we go through because of holes in the road is ridiculous.
There is no drainage so when it rains heavily places get flooded and roads are washed away. Areas that used to soak up the water have been built on due to pure greed. Or the ones who have moved back already having realised their mistake in moving to Spain in the first place.
Then you can truly decide and you can move back to the UK or wherever you came from originally without ruining your life. Sorry to sound so negative! We do encourage you to carefully consider your decision in advance.Summary of why suffering probably dominates happiness.
I personally believe that most animals (except maybe those that live a long time, like >3 years) probably endure more suffering than happiness overall, because I would trade away several years of life to avoid the pain of the average death in the wild.
