Quality Of Life
In the increasingly stressful world in which we live today, quality of life is one of the most important considerations in the decisions taken on where to live. Analysis of your current quality of life may make you want to rush into a change to try to make improvements. You must however make valued judgements.
What are the differences between life here and life back in the old country?
The quality of life compared to the UK
Although I have compared life here to life in the UK many of the comments could apply equally to other northern countries but since many of the comments come from personal experience, they may not apply if you live at present in a rural area. My experiences are derived from city life in the UK compared to suburban life on the Costa del Sol.
The fascinating fact here is that although we now live in Spain we still read British newspapers and watch British television, so we tend to see the old country which we know very well from a totally different perspective. Without being totally negative there do seem to be many problems today and the quality of life of the average Brit seems to be deteriorating.
