In 2000 my husband announced he wanted to give up work, sell up and change our lifestyle. He had worked for 20 years in direct marketing and we lived in the Cotswolds, he had always said that he spent all his spare time mowing the lawn. So we sold up and moved with our 2 children aged 8 and 12 to St Pere de Ribes. We were told in a local campsite the year before if we wanted real Spain or Catalonia we should look at St Pere. We drove in past the old casino and over the hill passing the castle and into the square and I knew this was where I wanted to live. Firstly we bought in the hills outside the town where many ex pats live however we soon realised that it is very isolated and we became taxi drivers for our children. We wanted to live in Spain but definitely not in the ex pat community.
