One couple left Spain and went to Portugal for a while but then came back to Spain again. They also go back to England to work and save for their next trip. Is that allowed?
Please lets not get sidetracked into Brexit unless it is relevant because no one "knows" yet

We are still discussing leaving the fiver here and visiting it for the winter and, possibly, other trips.
Whatever it is going to be a lot more complicated and probably costly than it is now (wait till the insurance companies see the

opportunities in the Green Card for "travelling abroad"

But don't forget to hold the Brexiteers and those who voted for Johnson to account, for all the hassle that will ensure.

Oh sorry no Brexit.................but I'm still last

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

Life is really, really great …...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!

I think it's all still in a state of flux Pat. I doubt anything will change in the immediate future (12 months). So no one can give you a definite answer and all the time it's like that I doubt anyone will question dates.

It's not that straight forward Dave, we enquired in 2018 about a passport for me, costs over 200€ you have to pass a certain level in German and about German politics, I don't need a passport to stay here I now have the right to stay pass, but don't know how that would work going back and forth, I wonder if anyone does there are still a few things hanging in the air.

Barry your situation maybe different as your Mother was German you have German blood, no harm in trying.

Sorry about the need for German history knowledge etc - that is the same as here except the language test does not apply over 65 AFAIK ( but everything is in the air obviously). My wife and family needed neither knowledge or language (thankfully cos only MrsW and our multi language daughter could have done that) - might be worth checking if the language thing is age limited or related - who knows it may be an EU ruling.......

There may, of course, be different requirements for holocaust descendants, the German Government is very keen to correct problems created by the Third Reich in 1940 odd....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

The German blood line is probably the reason Dave, I have none I was just married to one.

All very complicated which is not unusual for this country.

I would go for it here in France except for the history. It would be a massive learning curve as I know virtually ziltch. But I am still pissed because daft Brexit voters brought it upon myself and thousands of others without knowing.

Wen I get my Residence permit which will be soon I hope we will be in similar situations.


From what I know as Residents of the EU we wll be able to re-enter any time. In our countries of residence we can stay 365 days, as you do now. We will be free to travel to any EU country, but, like all EU citizens, will be limited to 90 days in any one country before we would be required to register there.


As a UK passport-holder you are free to come and go to UK any time and stay as long as you want.

Zilch would be kind for me....

https://www.thoughtco.com/france-a-h...rofile-1221301

The very short version,


The animated version, beloved of children with short attention spans....

Or, if you are bored and have 25 minutes to spare, interestingly the same tribes do not appear in this version as t'other....


Or if you are only interested in the Revolution (which one is debatable) and are not word perfect on "Les Miserables" (which has got to be one of the worst books to read IMO 😱 )

Try this (the idiots version, so suits me superbly 😜 )


There that should help bore you totally...

I think this part is the extent of my knowledge Dave.

France is a country in Western Europe that is roughly hexagonal in shape. It has existed as a country for a little over a thousand years and has managed to fill those years with some of the most important events in European history.

It is bordered by the English Channel to the north, Luxembourg and Belgium to the northeast, Germany and Switzerland to the east, Italy to the southeast, the Mediterranean to the south, southwest by Andorra and Spain and west by the Atlantic Ocean. It is currently a democracy, with a president and prime minister at the top of government.
