    We moved to Albox 4 months ago after retiring what can I say it’s the best move we ever made someone told us to give it 2 years it took 2 weeks after unpacking we were settled. we bought in the Spanish area we wanted to live with the Spanish people and we have been made very welcome. We have had a great Christmas being invited into our neighbours home on Christmas eve to spend it with her family and Christmas day dancing in the street with them. Boxing day we invited all our neighbours into our home and gave them food. We love our life here and retirement has been easy after working all our lives and bringing up 5 children we were dreading being not useful anymore we don’t have a spare minute every day is something different. Looking forward to a long life here.
