Amy
I am Amy, and I write Brit on the Rock. Currently my husband and I reside in Gibraltar, at the southern most tip of Spain. We moved abroad in 2009, but first stop for us was Malta. Where we stayed for about 18 months. Then in early March of 2011 we moved to Gibraltar.

My husband works in the gaming industry and it was a new job offer that led to us leaving the UK. When we left we were just boyfriend and girlfriend. We got engaged in Malta, and married here in Gibraltar, so we've very happy memories of both places.

Our initial move we did bit by bit, in Malta we had a fully furnished apartment so each time we flew out we moved an extra case of clothes or bits and pieces over. The move from Malta to Gibraltar was pretty stressful. There are no direct flights. The closest flight was a Ryan Air one to Seville and Ryan Air refused to let us buy more luggage allowance.   more ...

Anna
My name is Anna, I am 30 years old and a Director of Indigo Resources Ltd, a relocation and concierge company specialising in Gibraltar.

I moved to Gibraltar with my (now) husband in January 2006. We both had jobs in the internet gaming sector where my husband still works. We had always talked about living abroad so when the opportunity arose we jumped at the chance.


What challenges did you face during the move?
