The story of our adventure in Spain

In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

Foreigners in Spain

The number of EU residents living in Spain rose during the first nine months of 2010 by 5.81%

The number one slot was taken by Romania with 817,460 immigrants - UK residents total 228,108 immigrants.

To counter balance this the number of immigrants from outside the EU fell by 6.5% to a total of 2,395,704. The highest fall was in Madrid 13.51% and then the Valencia region 9%.

The majority of non EU residents come from South America 44.22%. - 343,797 from Ecuador alone. However the number one slot is Morocco with 728,234 immigrants.
