    I'm an expat living in Spain, was wondering how many other member had taken the leap and got out of the UK, but still find this a pretty useful forum to hang out in?

    Is there a value in an 'expat' section in here?

    ¡Vomos España!

    How is the property market there. Seems to be picking up here a bit (as an observer)
