The upsides and downsides of living in Spain

I wanted to give you my dear readers, a little insight into the life here in Spain.

Really I can't complain too much about the life here. Spain has good security, infrastructure, health care and education. 

The government helps those in need. While we do pay more in taxes, we receive more benefits. The health care and education are paid for by the government. Those are your two biggest expenses as a normal person so I consider us lucky, especially given my health situation. 

It is hard to be far away from my family and friends and if you don't speak Spanish, you will struggle here. But overall, the pace of life is slower here and people take the time to get out and socialize with each other. I like the fact that everyone is not so focused on working just to pay off credit card debt. 

Because when you die, it won't matter how much money you had, but it will matter how you chose to spend your time. Spend your time wisely with your loved ones. 

Til next time, Tyler
