Re: Pavement / table tax for cafes

I see this tax as being reasonable considering these establishments are using public space to expand their overall area.

Re: bike import

bassleft, I do not mind criticism as long as its meant as advise. I was of the opinion the yellow plates were for all older motos, a friend said that they are for all rustic motos under 50cc. In will likely end up buying something out of a shed as you said if that's what comes my way, as long as its...

Re: Jump leads/ booster cable.

I do not think this will work as cable be seen as dangerous like rope.
I have a collection of items that i need to put in a hold bag and will do some day.
ie Bottle 55%, Big hunting knife, kindof axe.
Don't ask me why i buy these things. Silly???

Re: tyre

Basically the car hire company has refused to refund on the basis that i made the decision without informing them, also the fact that tyres are not covered which someone earlier mentioned and i knew this already but i thought this may be for deliberate negligence and not a flat tyre which was deemed...

That was really why i asked as i have found from driving around there can be huge variation in temp. I often look at the temp the day before i travel and find a different temp than i expect on arrival. I do know there can be big variations between coast and inland but also think there may also be ot...

I sometimes go to Dia as they sell high end wines which can be €6 to €10 and the second bot be discounted 50% or 70%.
I end up with really good wine for about €6 per bot. I only do this if i am trying to impress.
Me i drink anything except water...

Yes I use revolut as well but only for things I buy and not for bank payments such as DD. Marios, do you know if we can set up DD for Spanish Electrica with revolut? Direct Debits are available to all Revolut users who have opened a Euro IBAN Account. This is because Revolut currently supports Dire...

Re: bike import

I believe that you can ride/ drive the bikes and small cars with yellow plates without a driving licence. Cheers Gerry Gerry, I just seen your post after i created my own. The option you mention may be perfect for me. I just want a campo toy and though i prefer be road legal if i can drive on campo...
