Moving home can be an incredibly complicated task for the simple reason that there are so many things that you have to do both before you move and after arrival in your new home. This is true whether you move down the road, across town, to the other end of the country, or even to another country. 
If you are going to move to Spain from the UK, you are not alone. Many UK nationals have been to Spain for a holiday - some go every year. When it comes to time for retirement, the relaxed way of life, the wonderful weather in the South (although of course you can ski in the Pyrenees, and even around Madrid!), and the low cost of living can all be a big attraction. There are a lot of expats living in the South on the Mediterranean. 
Moving to another country is an exciting experience. Even if it is one that you think you know well because you have been there on holiday several times, such as Spain perhaps, there is still an awful lot to learn and you have to adapt to a new way of life. Customs will be different. The weather may be very different too: you could be going to somewhere warm such as the Caribbean where you will never need an overcoat again, or you could be going to northern Canada where you most certainly will need your overcoat! 
Notwithstanding the fact that the UK has now left the EU, and that the final transition period is over, there are still any number of British people who are keen to go and live in Spain. The weather is so good compared with parts of the British Isles, with sun for an average 320 days a year, and for the golf enthusiast a wide choice of professional golf courses at which to play. Then there is the Spanish food and wine, and the whole rather laid-back way of life – manana, manana! No wonder that so many Brits decide to retire there.
