Ah crazybek....yes we are very lucky, have been living between the mainland and ibiza for 11 years now, but wow what a struggle it was to start with, I am not sure if iI would reccomend it unless you can speak spanish!!! My spanish is good now and my business is well established, also my hubby has a great job working for a club in Ibiza so life is good but we had many years of it being tough!! I have two kids 15 and 4, and they have an amazing life...like the UK used to be in the 1970's I guess, very safe and lots of time outdoors playing. Having said that you live in Devon you lucky girl, its so beautiful there! I am English by the way.
