When I came to live in the country, I informed myself about what it was like to live here, uses, customs, climate... In itself, there are things that were not very useful to me, because at the moment of truth, when coming to reside in Andorra, everything was very different to what I had supposed it to be. That is why I am going to make a small text with advice that in my opinion can help to understand what it is to live in Andorra.
Firstly, I was told that there were hardly any activities in Andorra, which is very untrue. In the end, there is less choice than in a city of one million inhabitants, but much more than in the homonymous city of 80,000 inhabitants. One always has to think about the immense amount of tourists that visit the country, which give a critical mass of enormous services. So the question is where does this perception come from? In my view, by the following point.
Andorran businesses are HORRIBLE at advertising, many times first level businesses do not have web and you have to know where they are. If you are from outside, it can take months to know where everything is and more than once you will have to ask for help. Many times it is easy to miss many interesting things because of the lack of publicity given to them, be they different services or activities. This is impossible in other countries, there are cases of some really impressive business that they do not even have web.
Third, Andorra is very traditional in many aspects and this is the main cultural shock. Some things are very advanced, but others, like the previous example of business advertising, are really disconcerting. A country that every weekend has a first class event, with an impressive traffic service, but in which sometimes it costs to hire certain basic services. At the level of internal computer components, for example, it is difficult to find concrete things.
Finally, the country is full of opportunities. It is easy to find work, a lot of interesting processes are being carried out... We have customers who want to live here for tax purposes, but also a lot of investment to fill some of the principalities' shortcomings. Therefore, the improvement is constant and continuous. There are incessant opportunities.
In short, so that the article does not get bigger than it already is (I will continue in the future), Andorra is a country of contrasts, but it is not like you believed or had been told.
