In an interview with global expat blog www.expatsblog.com, Matthew Hirtes talks about the circumstances that led to his move to Gran Canaria; how long he thinks he’ll stay there –”I’ll be here until my kids finish school. However, considering my youngest Tom, 2, hasn’t even started at colegio, it’ll be a while yet”; how he eventually made friends (hint: football!); and why “Canarians are the Australians of the Northern Hemisphere”.
Matthew is the author of Going Local in Gran Canaria: How to turn a holiday destination into a home. He was based in London before moving to Gran Canaria with his (Gran Canaria) wife.
