Travellers often underestimate the depth of cultural isolation they can face abroad, particularly in a country with a different language. To many people, Spain must seem an ‘easy’ option, with its millions of visitors from around the globe and numerous, well-established expatriate communities. However, sooner or later most newcomers find Spain a very ‘foreign’ country indeed – and many come unstuck as a result.
