About Us

This website was inspired by my move to Barcelona from England several years ago. Much of the information contained within this site is applicable if you’re moving to other areas of Spain as well, but the focus is on Barcelona.

My move to Barcelona

I planned my move to Barcelona one year in advance – I had (and still have) a design business in the UK (www.taurus-graphics.net). When I moved here, I kept a note of the various problems and solutions that I encountered along the way, and that information developed into this website.

Thanks to the internet, I’m able to continue working with my business in the UK, and also generate income from other websites, including: Maxima Graphics and Barcelona Flat Finder. Originally I planned to be in Barcelona for one year, but I loved the place so much I’m still here several years later.

I’ve always been interested in the property market, and for a period of time I worked for an independent estate agent in the UK. My property finding service grew from enquiries I received via this website.

Living in Barcelona

I’m very happy that I made the move to Barcelona – I can indulge my love of climbing and sailing and it’s a wonderful city full of life and culture.

About this site

This site runs adverts. Some of those adverts are Google Adsense adverts. These work by serving adverts that are relevant to the site’s content and also match your (the user’s) browsing history. So you could see adverts matching a website that you’ve recently visited, for example, or an advert that’s related to the content of the page you’re visiting. These adverts are positioned on the site by me, but the adverts that are served are controlled by Google.

This site also runs affiliate links. These are adverts that I’ve chosen to promote and can be text based or image banners. I only promote affiliate adverts that match the content of the website and that I think are a good resource. For example, that advert for Currencies Direct that you see on the right is an affiliate advert; I think they offer a very good service, without fees, for transferring money internationally.

If you click on an affiliate link it does not affect your user experience in any way. If you click on an affiliate link, go to that new website, and then purchase something from that website, I will make a commission on that purchase. The cost of your purchase is not increased or affected in any way.

These Google adverts and affiliate links enable me to make a small income from movingtobarcelona.com which helps me to maintain the site.
