John is one of the most peculiar neighbours who has bought a cheap property in Daya Vieja - Alicante - Costa Blanca (Spain). Besides being one of the most blonde people in this town of just over 700 inhabitants , he is one of the few who can speak English, and that is why so many children and youngsters ask him for help in matters of this language.
It could not be any other way, John was born more than 60 years in a town outside London where a fat a young age he moved away because his father had intended for him to prosper in life. He worked all his life as a bus driver, but one day he picked up his savings and pension which for many years he had saved and decided to buy a cheap property in Daya Vieja - Alicante - Costa Blanca (Spain).
A priori changing from the English capital of over 8 million people to a population of 700 seems a drastic change but it has its explanation. John spent the best summers of his childhood in his hometown, as an adult no longer visited them and he lived in the great city of lights and the upper floors. He works all day on big cars, traffic jams, whistles and urgencies.
When he decided to retire and started looking for somewhere to settle down, he knew that Spain was the best place he could go but it was not sure what area he would like. He contacted Casas Espania and they replied he knew that that was the place where everyone thought that they would like to live and buy cheap property in Daya Vieja - Alicante - Costa Blanca (Spain). They explained to him where it was and how the place was and once he was there he was amazed.
Here was a place like the place where he was born, with fields, with friendly people and with the convenience of traveling everywhere by bike or on foot.
