Not that I am aware of.
Who organises these and how do I apply?

Yes they are cheap. Not been on one yet as they seem to get booked up very quickly after their release date.

Re: OAP trips in Spain.

I'm guessing it was with the Imserso programme. Prices can be found here:-

Re: New Law about UK Pensions

I might be missing something but what has all this talk about the UK benefit system got to do with any body living in Andalucia?

Re: Bats

We had a colony of Pipistrelle bats living in the eaves of our house that we lived in in Cheshire before we moved here to Spain. They were a protected species. Didn't cause us any problems except for occasionally sweeping up their droppings. Just before dusk we could hear them revving up as they fla...

Re: Question for those with experience with cats

Agree with Miro. Exactly the same with our dog, when it was time we knew. Unfortunately animals are very good at hiding the fact they are in pain until the very end when they just seem to give up the will and the fight to live.

You can use and adaptor for the 13Amp plug or better still change the 13Amp plug for a Spanish plug. If you really want to use an adaptor make sure it is a good quality one. Many of the Chi...

Re: New Indian Torre del Mar

OK I can see where it is now.

Re: New Indian Torre del Mar

Something defiantly odd here. The no 21 I found was a private house as shown on a goggle maps search. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Paseo+Mar%C3%ADtimo+Levante,+21,+29740+Torre+del+Mar,+M%C3%A1laga/@36.7459528,-4.0858454,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0xd72479a4093356f:0x27c9c819f92b0f46!8m2!3d36...
