– What is it really like to live in Spain? Is it all long lunches with
wine, tapas every night, late nights, siestas all day and flamenco and
bullfighting on the weekends? – Keep watching and we’ll tell you which of the cliches about
living in Spain are true. and which are just cliches. (Spanish guitar music) – Hey, guys. My name is James Blick. – An I’m Yolanda Martin. – And welcome to Spain Revealed. This channel is all about
helping you explore Spain like a local and welcome to our home. This is the first time we’ve
ever done a video in our home so, we’ve decided to invite
you in, given that well, we’re doing a video
today about life in Spain and living in Spain, so it seemed appropriate to film it here. – Yeah, so there are a lot of cliches about what life is like in Spain and we wanted to give you
a little dose of reality. Don’t worry, we’re not going to ruin your
dreams about living in Spain. – This is an amazing place to live and I feel so lucky to live in Spain, but if you’re thinking
of moving to this country or you just wanna feel
better about the fact that you’re not maybe
missing out on as many things as you think you might be missing out on, then this is the video for you. So, we’re gonna go through 13 topics that we’ve put together, together, and I’ve also got questions that come from my Instagram followers and Twitter followers
about certain cliches, about what they think life
might be like in Spain and we’re gonna tackle
those. So, let’s dive in. okay, first clichè, that Spain has an incredible
work / life balance. This is a comment from one
of my Instagram friends. Arlinsic said, “My husband
and I are curious to know what the work / life balance is in Spain”. Now, what do you think,
why don’t you tell me, you’ve lived in New-Zealand,
together we lived there. I’ve lived in Spain, so I’ve
had the Anglo Saxon experience, we’ve had the Spanish experience, what do you think the work /
life balance is like in Spain? – Well, I would say that in
Spain, people work to live, rather than live to work. I think people talk about work less. I remember when we were in New-Zealand and your kind of typical
question at a dinner party is, what do you do? And I remember coming back
to Spain when we moved back and I would ask that
to people I would meet and they would kind of react
a little bit kind of like, you know
– it’s true they’re like, oh we’re having fun, we’re not here to talk
about work, you know? – It’s true. When you say to
a friend at at dinner party, how’s work? It just feels weird to ask
that question, but generally I think people are very much
more conscious in this country, say, than New-Zealand, the States, the UK, of maintaining a work / life balance. People appreciate the difference
between one and the other. Family’s really important. I remember when Yoly and I first met. Now, you’re a freelancer,
you, like all freelancers you work everyday of the week, constantly. When we first met and we
were living in New-Zealand I remember something came
up and I said to Yoly, well, maybe you could
do that job on a Sunday and you were like, “I will
not work on a Sunday”. – No, yeah. Oh, those golden times. – Obviously people work
on Sunday in this country. But, yeah. There is certainly a division
between those two things and that does generate a
healthier work / life balance. Okay, so if we have this kind of
better and healthier attitude to work and maybe this
better work / life balance in this country, does that mean
we don’t work much in Spain? – Well, we actually work very long hours. – Exactly. This country, people work from 9 am to often 8 pm. So, and why is that? There’s a lot of different
issues, there’s one called, well, what’s it called? – El presentismo. We have this idea that
you have to be there when your boss is there. Its like instead of
focusing on being productive or just getting the stuff
done, it’s more like, oh my boss is there, so I’d
better be there, you know/ – So you literally have
to sit at your desk. There’s this tradition
of sitting at your desk, because the boss is sitting at the desk, to show you’re working there. There’s also the tradition
of longer lunches, now we’re gonna talk about how that longer lunches
is a bit of a cliche, but all these things compile to create these very very long work days, which impact on family life,
so we have issues around people being tired, because
they’re working til very late. They get home at 8 pm, 8:30, 9, they have to squeeze in their family time. It’s even lowering the
birth rate potentially, our long working hours, so on the one hand I
think it’s interesting, we do have this attitude that it’s a little bit
more work / life balance, like focus on life and don’t
let work dominate completely, but in a lot of ways, work does dominate just
purely in the hours. – The idea we have is like we
wanna have that distinction and that balance, but we actually
don’t manage it very well. – Exactly and one really
interesting point just under this is that Spain is actually
in the wrong time zone. We should be in the same
time zone as London, but what happened is in
1940, Franco the dictator changed the clocks to Berlin time as a show of solidarity
with the Nazi government. Ever since then we’ve been
in the wrong time zone, so what that meant is the
clocks shifted forward an hour, so when people were having lunch at 1 pm, suddenly they were having lunch at 2 pm and so when people started
having dinner at 8 pm, suddenly they were having dinner at 9 pm. So everything shifted later, but the work day still started
at the same time and so, you got started the same time, it just got dragged out an hour longer, but still dealing with that. Alright. Onto the next clichè this is a country where
we do stay up very late. If we’re working longer,
we’re actually sleeping less, so, here in Spain, how much less to we sleep than
the European Union average? – It’s about one hour less, so you know? Bags under our eyes big time. – Bags under our eyes, I
hope you can’t see them here, but we do sleep about one hour less than other European countries. Part of it is because
we’re getting home so late because of that long work day. It means prime time TV starts a lot later, at sort of 9:30, 10:00 at night, because people are at work until later and then you gotta squeeze in family time. By the time you get to bed it’s, exactly, dinner, it’s
like 1 pm, sorry 1 am. (laughs) that would be really late
1 pm, through the next day. But one of the things that I
thought was really interesting, this statistic, or this fact,
is that a few years back there was a children’s cooking show, it’s like Masterchef for
kids or something like that and in the final, it finished at 1:30 am and there were still 600 000
Spanish children watching it at 1:30 am and there
was this kind of woohaa, but there have been examples
of TV shows for kids that go well past midnight and so we’ve got this culture here. I find it a really hard
country to be an early riser. I love the mornings, but it’s really hard
to make that compatible with the social life and, well, when you were a kid, Yoly. What time did you go to bed? – Well, I remember About
10 pm, 11 pm, yeah. – At what age are we talking? – I was like eight years old, you know? Nine years old, yeah real late. – I know it’s hard to
remember, I remember battling for getting a few, half an
hour extras. At eight, nine I was probably in bed by eight
or nine, or, I have no idea, but certainly not ten or eleven. – And I was getting up early
in the morning, of course. – Exactly, sleep deprived, you’ve come out okay at the other end. I always thought a great little thing
around going to bed late, was comparing our mothers. My mother goes to bed in
New-Zealand at about 10:00 or so, what about your mother? – My mom, more or less like
midnight, 1 am many nights, actually, so, that’s normal. – Exactly, so it really has
that culture of staying up late. Alright, clichè number four. That Spaniards have really long
lunches with wine everyday. Yoly, do you have a long lunch, a three hour lunch with wine everyday? – No, no, no, never ever really. – Never ever, wow, maybe once in while. We do it now and again,
but maybe on the weekends. I mean, look, lunch is the main meal here, so that’s a really important thing, I remember when we met as well as Yoly saying she
wouldn’t work on Sundays, I managed to get rid of that one, what is the other thing you told me, when I suggested we have
a sandwich for lunch? – Well, the idea of having
a sandwich for lunch was pretty depressing. – Exactly, ’cause why? – Cooked food, you want
cooked food, you know you want even if you go to the office, you’re not gonna eat a sandwich while you’re working at your desk, you’re going to bring
a Tupperware from home, maybe with some cooked food that you’re going to
heat up in a microwave. – Exactly, now Yoly, you
work mainly from home, I know about in the
Devour office for example Devour tours office, people aren’t eating Sandwiches
over their keyboards, we generally sit together for lunch and people have left overs,
food that they’ve prepared, it’s food that they’ll heat up, so there’s a lot of hot food at lunch, and we will take an hour,
generally, more or less, so I think there is still that sense that lunch is important, but it’s certainly not
three hour lunches everyday with wine. Obviously on the weekend though, we do love a big, long lunch, and what is, there’s a concept called the sobre mesa, so what is the sobre mesa, Yoly? – Well after dessert,
maybe you have coffee and maybe that’s when
they kind of mixed drinks come out as well, so people have maybe a (names drinks in Spanish). – Like a rum and coke or something. – And you know, it can last
for like one hour, two hours, just kind of sitting
there around the table, just talking, you know sobre mesa. – Exactly, sobre mesa means on the table, and it’s literally a period
where lunch might end at 4:00 the actual eating, and
you’ll sit there for hours just talking and the sun will go down. Cliche number five. Spain is wine country. This is a yes and a no thing, right Yoly? – Yes, yeah, exactly. – Yes and no. – In terms of consumption as
opposed to production, I guess, – Exactly, that’s how
you got to look at it. So, look we have the largest
covering of vines in the world. You can see this behind Yoly’s head, our Spanish wine country map, so we have the largest
covering of vines in the world, and we’re one of the three
top producers in the world, but we are not even in the top five, ten or twenty of drinkers. I
have a list here of countries that drink more wine than us. Germany, Sweden, Portugal,
France, Switzerland, Austria, Romania, they all drink more
wine than us, so what is up? What are we drinking? Are we drinking water, Yoly? – Well, we’re drinking a lot of beer, probably more than water. (laughs) – Exactly, so this
really is a beer country. – Yes, it is, it is, so, people
go out and they have cana, they have cana’s they have small beers. they don’t have wine so much, I mean it’s kind of I guess taking off a little bit and I think that consumption of wine is increasing, but no, traditionally beer. – It’s true actually, wine consumption rose last year for the first time in a long time, but if you compare it to say,
twenty, thirty years ago, it’s way down. And
people are drinking beer, you go into the bars, people are drinking little cana’s of beer, exactly, and what’s interesting is just to look at these stats I have here, is if we’re in the top
thirty of wine drinkers, not even in the top twenty, we are the 12th biggest
beer drinkers in the world. Curiously Namibia is the
second one, but anyway, I do trust this data,
anyone been to Namibia? Let us know in the comments, what’s going on with the beer there? But yeah the 12th biggest beer country, so yes, we are wine country
in terms of production, but not in terms of drinking, but in this household,
wine drinkers all the way. Okay, cliche number six. Spaniards go out for tapas
every night of the week. It was funny, I know
these sound a bit crazy, but it was funny in giving a lot of tours with Devour tours a lot of people have said to me, “my God, the bars are so busy, in Spain. you must be out every night of the week, eating tapas and hanging out
and, we’re not doing that, but there’s an undercurrent
of truth in here, isn’t there? – Yeah. – And what is it Yoly, that
something about the fact that this is a culture where
we don’t sit at home so much, we go out into the squares and the bars. – Yeah, we love being out
in the street, you know. My parents go for walks everyday, everyday, it’s like a Religion, you know. I remember being in
New-Zealand and it was, I don’t know it was rainy, and
I was busy working at home, I just felt like I needed
to be out in the street, and not driving our car, because
there’s a lot of driving, no, no, no, I just wanted to walk, walk. I needed to use my legs. I know we were talking about
doing tapas every night, but I guess what we’re saying
is the bars look very busy, the streets look very busy, because we go out into
the street to socialize, and so it’s a big deal to invite someone over to
your home in this country. – Yeah, we don’t do it that often. – We don’t do it that often, if someone’s like, hey let’s meet up, you will go meet in a bar,
or maybe go meet in a square if you’re younger and
you can’t go to bars yet, and so, you’ll also see
people go to the paseo, which is the afternoon walk. Couples will go out, friends will go out and that they will meet
their friends in the square, you’ll see often a lot of elderly
people sitting in squares, chatting and socializing, they’re not hanging out
in their living rooms. – Yeah. – Exactly, a really important
part of the culture, and if you do invite people over, it sort of feels a bit weird sometimes, they don’t quite know where
to put themselves, right? – It’s true, we just don’t have that culture of like, I don’t know, dinner parties
and things like that, we just don’t do it so much. – It’s true, I remember
we had a dinner party. We’d been in Spain for a couple of years, and I thought I’d invite
all of our friends, who were my acquired friends through Yoly, over for Christmas lunch, I
think it was Christmas dinner, and it felt weird,
sitting there with our… we pushed through, but then we got out and went to the bar afterwards
once dinner was over. It just felt very constrained. So, I think, yes, we are out often, we’ll go out and the beauty
of tapas is it’s very fluid, so you might go out and you have your paseo and
maybe you just stop at a bar and have a beer and have
a nibble on something, but then you’ll go home and have dinner, and so, I think in a
place like New-Zealand, there’s more intention around
going out, so it’s like are we going out? Are we going out to dinner? Here it just kind of happens, and doesn’t have to be a full night out and the kids are allowed in bars, so you’ll see children in bars, so you don’t have to get a babysitter if you’re gonna go out
for a walk, or go to bars so, we’re not eating tapas
every night in the bars, but we are out on the streets a lot. Okay, cliche number seven. Spain is hot all year round, now, Trevor Huxham, sent me this tweet. He said, well, this is not
verbatim, but affectively he moved to Andalucia to
Southern Spain, some years back and he was really looking forward to enjoying the year round warm weather, and he wound up freezing his
preverbials off over winter ’cause he just wasn’t ready for it. So, look. This country is
not hot all year round. We’re sitting here in Madrid right now. Outside it’s probably
like eight degrees, right? it’s cold – Yeah, it gets cold. It gets
definitely cold in winter, I mean, it is kind of warmer
in Andalucia in the south, so, but winters definitely get cold. Houses though, are not so prepared, like even Andalucians seem to
think that it’s not that cold, but houses are not very
prepared for that cold weather. – And look, we are blessed
with incredible weather in large parts of the country, it’s true, you can plan a picnic
three weeks from today in the middle of summer
and it’s not gonna rain, probably, it would be a freak occurrence, whereas coming from New-Zealand, where the weather is so changeable you can’t plan with
that sort of certainty. So we do and there’s places
like Malaga for instance, which just, the sunniest
city in Europe and obviously the north of Spain, green
Spain, Galicia, Asturias, those regions are a
little like New-Zealand the bars country, they’re
rainy, they get cooler. – Can be more unpredictable
as well in terms of weather like Summer, it can be rainy,
like really rainy in Summer, yeah. – So, I think just be aware that obviously the
regionality in this country means there’s different
weather all over the country, but it’s just not, we’re not
on the equator here, guys. We’re blessed with great weather, but it’s not across the board, hot days all 365 days of the year. Okay, myth number eight. Struggling to do that with my fingers. Not that agile. Spain is cheap, cheap, cheap. There’s this, I think an impression that this country is super
cheap and it is in some ways, I mean, food and wine,
relatively speaking perhaps, well, certainly wine is cheap, but eating out might seem
a bit cheaper, right, but it’s not al like that, right, Yoly? – No, and cities are expensive, I guess there is an imbalance
between rent and salaries, so, rent is actually quite expensive compared to what people
earn actually, yes. So, it’s not that cheap
actually. For Spaniards anyway. – For Spaniards, yeah, I
have some statistics here which, you can compare
with your own country, so, it might feel like a cheap
country if you’re coming here you’re not renting, obviously,
cause you’re on vacation and you are just eating
and drinking and yeah, I think people, I think the fact that the
alcohol is really cheap and the wine is cheap. I think that really flows through a
lot of people’s experience, cause when you’re in Spain on holiday, you drink a lot of wine. So, it’s over represented, I think a little bit
in people’s vacations. But here’s a statistic, so Spanish workers earn an average of twenty three thousand Euros a year with the most frequent wage or salary being about sixteen thousand
five hundred euros a year. So, pretty low compared
to say France, or Germany or perhaps the states or the UK. For Spaniards it’s not super
cheap, but it might feel cheap certain aspects when you
come and travel here. Cliche number You’re gonna have to put
up four fingers and help me cliche number nine.
Spaniards are always late. Now this is quite a complex one. I know when I’m going to
meet someone in this country I do feel like if it’s a 3 pm meeting, it depends a little bit, but I feel like I might have
a five minute window or so where I don’t have to say,
hey, I’m running late, where as it’s true, if I’m dealing with an Anglo Saxon person, I have that obligation a little bit to send a watsapp message if I’m gonna be like two minutes late, I’ll be like, hey, I’m
gonna be two minutes late. – Nah, if you do that with a Spaniard, they’re gonna think you’re a psychopath. – They’ll think you’re nuts if you say I’m running two minutes late. So, but when we’re
talking about this cliche and you’re a little
conflicted on this one Yoly, so, let’s talk it out. – Yeah, I actually think
that we Spaniards, actually sometimes to time
believe in our own cliche so, I kind of find myself thinking, yeah, we are kind of late all the time, but then my reality is that, you know? Last night we were meeting these friends and we were the ones that were
kind of a little bit late, and we got there three minutes late and they were both there. So, the reality is actually that
we might not be so impunctual. – Exactly, no I think that’s
true. I think this might also touch on a little bit something
we’re gonna deal with, a cliche in a few more
cliches which is about us being a little more
relaxed in this country and less uptight about certain things. So but generally, yeah, there might be a little
wiggle room on the time, but it’s not this crazy like, hey, I’m half an hour late,
but nobody cares, not at all. Okay, we have four cliches to go, we’re on clichè number ten. This one I can do with both
hands, I have that dexterity, thank God, to hold up two hands. So, this one is all
Spaniards love flamenco, Yoly, you’re a huge
flamenco expert and fan, I’m a fan, but this came
through Corky brink. She sent a message through
Instagram and she said, “I thought I would always
hear Spanish guitar at every corner being played
from beautiful courtyards”. So, here’s the thing, is there Spanish guitars,
a flamenco guitar on every corner of the street and are we all listening
to flamenco in this country and all dancing flamenco
and all this sort of stuff? – I wish, but no, the reality
is that it’s not like that. Actually there is a little bit
of an anti- flamenco attitude in Spain, it’s not that popular. A little bit more popular in the south, which is where it comes from
so, more people are into it, but Madrid and up, not so much. People think it’s kind
of a too traditional, backward, low class. I was no different. – Yeah, actually, when we moved
to New-Zealand ten years ago you were not into flamenco at all. – I was not, no, no, no, no, no. My music was punk rock and rock and roll and music from the
sixties anything that was coming from the United
States or France or, but then I got a little
bit homesick by year two of being there and I needed
that dose of Spanishness, so, I started listening to flamenco for the first time in my life, even taking dance classes over there. – We actually went and saw
flamenco live in Auckland in New-Zealand, both for the first time. The first time we both saw flamenco was together in New-Zealand and we went to dance classes together. I dropped out after about four classes and one of the things that this means, is that if you go and see a
flamenco show in a Tablao, there are gonna be other
tourists around you, because these wonderful
world class artists, need tourism to survive, because the Flamenco venues
are not filling up with locals. – No, no, no, no, there’s
just not enough fans, there’s not enough of us. – Here, people might know a few dance
moves or something like that, but they maybe don’t love the
music, the singing, as much. – The singing, the singing, is, yeah, a little bit
harder to like, I guess. It sounds hard for our ears, guttural. The rhythms are very
different to pop music, say. So, yeah, people appreciate
the guitar and the dancing more immediately than the singing. – Cliche number 11. Bullfighting. Yoly, you’re a huge
bullfighting fan, right? – Yes, no, not at all. Not at all. It’s actually quite unpopular
as well amongst younger people you know, I don’t know my age. – Well, I have a statistic here. between seven out of ten sixteen
to thirty five year olds, are against bullfighting in this country. That’s a really broad, young age group and most of them, seventy
percent are against it now, you’ve grown up with
bullfighting obviously, it was on, on… – Yeah, I grew up with, it
was on TV well almost everyday during the season and I’ve seen a lot, because my dad used to enjoy
watching them on the TV. – But you’ve never been to one. – I’ve never been to one
live, like I have no interest really you know, to go and see it. – Exactly, I’ve been to two
as a curious kind of expat when I arrived here, I went to a couple. I’m against it as a lot of people of our
generation are against it. Obviously they’re still on,
particularly in Madrid and in the south of Spain. You won’t
see them in the Cataluah, you won’t see them in the Canary Islands, but what will happen to it, do you think? Do you think it’ll disappear or? – I think, I mean it’s
certainly fading away and probably disappear
in the end, animal rights should be above all that. – Exactly, above the entertainment factor. I think one of the things that will
probably happen to bullfighting is just financially there
will not be the money in it to keep going in the same way it is. And even we’re noticing
there’s if you read statistics, there’s a drop in the number
of bull fights every year because if there’s not ticket buyers then nobody’s gonna make money out of it, so nobody’s gonna wanna
be put on a bull fight. It is a political football
bullfighting in this country so, one thing, depending if you’ve got
a conservative government or liberal government, then bullfighting is one of those things, that’s always catnip to the supporters, so you’ve got for example bullfighting
under the previous socialist government was banned from national TV and then the conservative
government put it back on TV, but it is a little
surreal, we were in a bar a couple months back and
it was more traditional bar in quite a conservative neighborhood and there was bullfighting on TV, and I was looking at,
there’s an animal dying on TV and I was like, man, it’s
interesting how things can be so ingrained in culture that you
don’t actually look at them through a lens of like, there’s somebody killing an
animal for entertainment on TV. If that didn’t exist, and you’re like, hey let’s do
this thing, this sounds great, everyone would be like,
oh my God, but it’s just it’s still there, and it still becomes, people grab onto it either
they’re for or against as a sense of identity of your politics and things like that, so I think it’ll evolve
and what might happen, is it evolves into something where the bull is not killed or tortured and maybe they’re jumping over the bull or something like that. I don’t know, I don’t think
it’ll disappear completely. Cliche number 12. I’m gonna give up on the whole hands thing because it’s getting very
complicated, but here we go. Most Spaniards are good
church going Catholics. Now, I think the image of
this country is Catholicism particularly driven by the
dictatorship that we had from 39 to the mid seventies, so this is still the image
that a lot of people have and when we moved into
our first apartment here, I think there was a picture of the Virgin hanging above the bed, the
Virgin Mary, I should say. And obviously there
was religious artifacts and it’s really a generational thing and I have a statistic here that I think is really really interesting. So, 70% of Spaniards still
call themselves Catholics. That’s down from 90% in 1978. 1978 was the year that
we became a democracy. So, it’s 70% called catholic, it’s pretty high, right? I mean do you call yourself a Catholic? – No, well actually, I have de registered
from the Catholic church. – So Yoly has apostatard,
we say in English almost, in Spanish I’m not sure what the word is in English it’s probably like apostasized or something like that to
get taken off the list, cause you’re baptized, you’re on the list, so, you had to go through
some administrative work… – Yeah, a little bit of
paperwork but fairly simple. – Fairly simple, it would’ve been harder
a few years back, right? – Yes, it was. – Okay, so, you’re not officially
counted as a Catholic anymore. Oh, my God, does that make you a heathen? I’m married to a heathen? So, okay, 7o% call
themselves Catholics, but that’s a little
misleading, that statistic, because 60% of that 70%,
get your calculators out, say they almost never go to mass. So you got 70% saying,
yeah, I’m a Catholic, but most of them never go to mass. So they’re not practicing Catholics and so, what does that tell us? Does that say something about the fact that Catholicism is still
strong as a tradition? But people aren’t active necessarily. – Yeah, I think it’s a bit, I call it like a social
club really, you know. People just do it out
of tradition, you know. Even people that has never in
years gone to mass on Sunday and then they get married and all of a sudden they have a baby and they baptize the baby
and you’re like, really? – So, it’s actually Sunday
today and we did not go to mass. Sorry, if that disappoints anyone. Okay, the last cliche. Unlucky number 13. Spaniards are highly passionate people. This is the country of Picasso,
of Dali, of Penelope Cruz. Yoly, tell me. Are you a
wonderfully , passionate, wah, kind of people and culture? – Do you need to ask? – How dare I ask that question? – I think, I guess, we’re
very welcoming people, we are warm, I think we are very warm. I guess that kind of easy going. Just with an open heart I guess, I mean of course you know this
is a massive generalization and there is you know people
of all kinds in this country, but I guess that we do have a habit of an
open attitude towards someone that’s going to approach us in the street. – I think that’s right and I mean, we’re talking about passion, we’re not all running
around like crazy people. Our passion really converts
into an openness of friendliness a warmth, you know,
the bars are very load, because people are talking a lot, because we love to talk in this country. – I have a specially loud voice. – Yoly has a perfect
voice for cutting through and getting your order in at at tapas bar when there’s a lot of noise. Perfect pitch. I know when I moved here and you’re meeting people
for the first time, people are just friendly and
open and not super closed down again, as you say, they’re
generalizations, but there is an openness, a willingness
to have a conversation, say, how are you? And a smile and things like that, so, it’s a wonderful place
where you can walk into a bar and start chatting to someone
and it’s true that they might have a lot of struggles
going on in the background, but they will often wear it with a smile, rightly and wrongly in some ways, but you know people will strike up
conversations very very easily and so I think that easiness does feel
like a form of passion, so, yep, I’m gonna call
Spaniards passionate in that sense and if you come
here, learn some of the lingo because the ability to kind of have a
wonderful experience here, if you just know a few words, people will engage with you
and that’s what’s so wonderful and I’m sure there’s other countries where that’s a little harder to do, but here it’s really easy, so learn a few words, come and engage with all these wonderful, passionate Spaniards. Guys, what did we miss? What did we get wrong? If you live here, if you’re a
Spaniard and you’re like Yoly and you’re like oh my God, I can’t believe they’ve
said these terrible things about my culture. If you’re an expat and you
have a different experience, let us know or if you’re for example have other questions
that you’d like to ask us, do let us know in the comments below and we will reply. And the other thing I was gonna say, what did you think about us
doing a video here in our home? Talking about life in Spain. Is it something that interests you? Is there more topics we
could talk about like this in this format, when we’re not doing tapas
crawls and in the bars, do let us know and
anything else to add, Yoly? – Well, thanks for watching. Subscribe if you wanna
explore Spain with us. Give us a thumbs up, go on,
Yoly’s mum will be proud. And we’ll see you in the next video. (together) hasta la fuego.
