Monthly Wrap


February 2018

 

John


We survived January, the days are starting to get longer and summer isn’t feeling quite so far away. To celebrate, we’ve put together another selection of articles for your enjoyment.


In the latest monthly wrap we pit Spain against France and explore which nation has more to offer expats. We also look at the healthiest expat destinations (for those of you still keeping up with your New Year diets) and provide a brief overview of how to buy property in Ireland.


The last few weeks have also been pretty interesting in terms of currency movement, so if you need to move money abroad you might want to check out our monthly roundups of the latest shifts in pound, euro and US dollar exchange rates.


Happy February!
