Default 10 reasons why i love living in Spain

after living here for a year and a half now its easy to get use to it. having spent last week in Britain it reminded me why i love Spain so much.
here are just 10 reasons why!

Dave Hodgson 10 things i love about Spain (in no order of popularity)

1 the weather, mild bright winters and red hot summers
2 the food, tapas, chorizo and pitufos
3 outdoor life, sitting outside in the evenings
...4 fiestas, the Spanish love of having fun and recreation
5 the family, still very important to the average spaniard
6 the spanish positive outlook on life
7 Spanish culture, history etc
8 spanish music especially flamenco guitar
9 the language, its so rythmic and passionate (especially here in andalucia)
10 the football always a good atmosphere whilst watching the match (especially when Spain win)

11 You are never far from open, beautiful countryside, hills, mountains.
12 The friendliness of the Spanish people.

...and I've not been "home" for 8 years

I can't think of any reason to leave spain at all. I am so happy here and pity those who can't live here permanently!!!
Don't necessarily agree with the "mild" winter bit. Minus eight for a week last December was a mite chilly. Number one for me will always be the friendliness of the Spanish people. What impresses me most is their almost insatiable lust for knowledge. I doubt there's one I know who isn't involved in some form of out of work education.
