Why did we decide to move to Spain?
We decided to move to mainland Spain for many reasons. It is so much easier to have a great quality of life in Spain. Material possessions are not important, or at least they don’t have to be. The Spanish people are so welcoming and family life is very important to them. Provided you make the effort, it can be easy to become part of your local community. Traveling to and from Spain is very easy and affordable thanks to the frequency flights and the road and rail alternatives.
Why is Spain a great place to move to?
Where do I start? Obviously, my opinions are based on my own experiences and those of many people that I have helped to relocate to the Malaga area.
Without wanting to state the obvious, Southern Spain enjoys a climate which encourages outdoor living, masses of fresh air and healthier eating. After over 20 years, the blue skies and sunshine still make me smile. 
However, I think it is fair to say that Spain offers a wonderful environment to all kinds of people. I love the fact that my children (aged 7 and 9) attend a Spanish state school, are doing very well and  are both bilingual. They eat a wide variety of different foods (shellfish from a very early age, much to my mum’s despair) and spend more hours outside than in. They interact with children of all nationalities and races and neither language nor background is of importance.
Why did I feel I had to write the book -  how difficult it was to get information and why did I feel I needed to help others to make the move? 
I actually earn my living as an independent relocation advisor and personal property finder. I assist families and professionals in making the best decisions when planning their move to Spain. My specialities are dealing with NIE and residency issues, Spanish bureaucracy and property purchase procedures. It is this work along with my personal experiences that has provided me with first-hand knowledge and material for my writing.
