SPAIN


Location - Western Europe; Capital - Madrid; Population - 46 million; Currency - Euro MORE SPAIN

I went out to Spain in 1995 with £45 and a one way flight to Malaga looking for work. I came home a week later.

I returned a few months later with a whopping £90 and found a great job in Fuengirola. I stayed for about 8 months.

Wherever I've gone abroad to work I've hardly taken any photos - of people or places. It's only when I leave that I realise.. Hi to all those I met in Fuengirola.
