My Brother recently chucked his job and just about everything he owns and moved to Spain. He is unmarried and writes for a living, so there was really nothing keeping him here in the States.
If you are interested in learning about life in Valencia (he writes very well -- though I do not take responsibility for any foul language or his political leanings).
His Blog is called Leftbanker
Why not click on over and give it a view, you may just get the urge to visit Spain yourself.
