All the characters they encounter are slightly off-beat and Derek and his wife soon stumble upon many of the idiosyncrasies of Spanish life as well as its allure and charm.Yes, the format has been exhausted but if you wer a fan of the Brit seeking a new life genre then you can ind this an amusing account.
