Hola, I have recently moved to Santa Pola with my 3 children (2yrs, 10yrs, 12yrs) and my mother.

I am originally from New Zealand but have lived and worked in the UK for the past 15 yrs. My other half is still working in the UK and travelling here at weekends until he finds work here.

We are enjoying life so far, still trying to get the kids registered in schools and waiting for NIE appointments but all is good. 

Hoping to register for Spanish lessons asap (we had a tutor in the UK for awhile).

This site has been a great source of information so thank you to everyone :) 

Melissa

Hi Melissa and welcome to the forum!

Santa Pola is a lovely town, great choice, it's one of our favourites.  I hope you and your family settle in quickly and start to enjoy all that Spain has to offer.  If there's anything you don't understand, just ask, at least one of us is likely to have encountered something similar.

Best wishes,

Kim

Can I suggest that you have a look at Jim’s Guides on this site as you may find answers to some of the queries that you will have.   Another helpful site is Citizens Advice Bureau Spain.   To do with anything about driving in Spain have a look at the N332 site.   It is run in collaboration with officers of the Guardia Civil for English speaking people and has an English version of the Spanish equivalent of the Highway Code.    Also be aware that many things may change after the end of this month and then the end of the year.   Another thing, be aware that many provinces and towns ‘tweek’ many national rules and regulations for their own procedures.

I do!  And a new bathroom sink ! 

My husbands jaw issue is now “sorted”  .  Dr told him there was no point in another mri scan as it can get any worse..it’s as bad as it can be. They won’t do surgery as it’s too risky an operation. It’s basically “ off you go & take out shares in anadin! “ 


Now it’s just work we need.  !
