Advantages of living in England
The unemployment rate is almost nonexistent, so for the subject of work you will not have to worry. In addition, salaries are usually very high, even for jobs as a waiter or au pair. The only downside there may be is the language issue, but if you have a basic level of English you will have no problem finding a job.
There is a great diversity of cultures, so you can meet people from very diverse countries without leaving your city. You will even find many people who speak Spanish and are looking for the same experiences as you.
England is a very liberal country, here you can do whatever you want (within the rules) and dress as you please without being judged or criticized by others.
One of the most curious things about this country is how clean the streets are, even after nights of parties or events.
Perhaps the most important thing about living in England is how fast you will learn English, a very important language nowadays, and more if you are a person who travels a lot like me.
Supermarkets, banks, shopping centers and other places of interest do not close on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. This now may not seem like an important thing, but when you are there and have any urgency it will seem so.
England is a country with a bestial cultural offer. The cities are full of theaters, bookstores and museums where admission is free.
And the last advantage of living in England that I can think of is that the bureaucratic procedures are less heavy and go faster than in other countries, which is important, since to change your place of residence you will have to do a lot of paperwork.
Disadvantages of living in England
As you know we are in the Brexit era, so things are starting to change since the UK left the European Union. There is still quite uncertainty with the whole Brexit issue, but what is being noticed is a greater rejection of the English population towards immigrants, as reflected in the polls.
A problem of residing here is the price of rents, which are very high, and against more south of the country we go more expensive will be. In general, the products of most services and products have a higher price than in other European countries. I give you a list with the indicative prices of some things:
• 1 liter of milk = 1.11 US dollars
• 1 liter of gasoline = $ 1.34
• Movie ticket = $ 12
• Monthly internet fee = $ 26
• Gym monthly fee = 44 $
Something I do not like is that the English always take food from take away, and as you know this type of food is not the healthiest for our body. The truth is that in England you usually eat quite badly, it is difficult to find places where they offer you quality at a good price.
And finally, one of the things that will get you crazy is the weather. The whole day is cloudy and it is almost a miracle that a ray of light appears through the window. The rains are also very frequent, although less than I expected, I must also say. Also, you have to take into account the few hours of daylight; in winter from 4 in the afternoon it is night.
