    Are any of you guys living in Spain? I'm especially looking for those who are not originally from Spain, but decided to move there with IM income because of relatively cheap living and weather.

    I'm considering moving there myself and would like to hear some tips and feedbacks from real and similar minded peeps :)

    It depends what part of Spain you want to live in if its for cheaper living. I lived in Madrid most of last year and I travel out there regularly to visit friends now, its not cheap its an expensive city I decided to go with a friend that got a job out there, took my laptop and off I went. It was amazing I would highly recommened it. The spanish people are great, they love to party and Spain has some of the best spots in Europe in one Country.

    If I was to move to spain again though I would head round the coast or maybe even the Canary Islands, I'm going there on Monday for a week its not in mainland Spain though its off the coast of Africa afaik, the cost of living is a lot less there too than on mainland Spain I hear. Theres a few guys on here that have lived in Spain I met extrawinner when I was out there he lived closer to the coast near Alicante on an expat place surrounded by a golf course and swimming pools it was excellent value from what I remember.
