Renting an apartment sounds like a no brainer - if that's what you want

BUT

Apartment blocks are basically empty in the winter (which is why the rent is so low) - would you want to be the only occupant in a block of apartments in a foreign country?

We gave that solution some thought but decided instead to buy a cheapo ex traveller caravan and store it in Spain, paying a euro a day for that.

We pay 35 euros to have it taken out of (covered) storage and put on site

We pay 12 euros a day to have it on site for 180+ days

And another 35 euros to have it taken back into storage

The benefits are many - but mainly social and no driving around to have a beer or something to eat although we do take a car to carry the stuff we need to use both in UK and Spain so there's the cost of ferry and mileage to add but I still spend less on fuel here than I would do in UK over the same period.

We are "thinking" about renting out our house in UK to generate some additional income - but actually can't be bothered (and fortunately don't need) to get it all sorted...

Cheers

Dave
