We have an appointment. Thing is it's a 15 minute drive, We live in the campo near Torrox and the vet is i...

Re: Guardia and the CV rules.

My passport is being printed. Some valid ideas there though, thanks.

Re: Guardia and the CV rules.

I call the English Police officers it is normal, a 70 year old habit. I would like to call them thugs, their behaviour yesterday was completely uncalled for.

Guardia and the CV rules.

This morning found me going into Torrox Costa SuperSol to get stuff the others don't stock. Exiting was one of those ageing hippies usually German. There was a GC car parked up and the occupants got out on sight of the ageing hippy and started on him in my opinion very aggressively. Documents Docume...

Re: Coronavirus

Here too, our cleaner who we only took on recently to assist while the management got over her operation, has offered to do our shopping. Considerably out of her way as we are campo dwellers.
Nice people.

That is a Jet2 operational decision not a Spanish decision it seems from a member of their cabin staff.

Re: Holiday Let

The short answer is no.
A lot of requirements are now in place. Yo need to go to your local Ayuntamiento and find out what their requirements are. In all probability the requirements will vary between Town Halls, even individuals :(

Re: Seeing Africa last evening from Nerja

From 394m we regularly see something, it is quite clearly the tops if the Rif mountains, the peaks line up with a compass and a map. I have little interest in the mechanism but am satisfied that it is North Africa. The last time or maybe the time before that this came up I did a calculation that pro...

Re: Amateur radio ham

A scanner sweeps a band of frequencies possibly preset say 118 to 136 Mhz (that's the Aviation communication range) and stops when it finds a busy frequency. Legality is down to the individual administration, obviously the police bands are out of play as is Airband in some countries (UK certainly) t...

Re: Amateur radio ham

You are way outside my expertise unfortunately living in Spain. If you were in Manchester I would tell you to get to the Stockport Radio Society where there is a wealth of experience.
