Re: Driving from Seville airport to Torrox - advice please :)

Hi Wollie, sorry, I'm not ignoring your advice at all so please don't be annoyed - I will have my family with me late at night and navigating a route I don't know (whilst stressed and nervous!) will be difficult. I've become too reliant on Google Maps obviously... You are ok i am not annoyed at all...

Re: Driving from Seville airport to Torrox - advice please :)

The A4 does indeed bring you right into the city. What i am suggesting is take this route in the outward direction for about 10km. Then use the SE 40 link route to get to A 92. I would you go on maps and just click on a point on this route, when you get to this point you can put in your final destin...

Re: Driving from Seville airport to Torrox - advice please :)

If you want to avoid the hassle of the city head north east on the A4 about 20km and then cut across to A92.
The distance more or less the same but you avoid confusion of city driving.
It is easier than going into town and picking A92 from the start.
The link route is SE 40.

Re: Olive Oil, Liquid gold or not?

I expect this guy knows what he is about as he works in a place which produces olives for table for 3 months in Sevilla each year. For example he was talking of different types and that most of the olives in his area were for olive oil. He also said that the single olive tree produces better olives ...

Re: Olive Oil, Liquid gold or not?

"ama de casa" i am sexist and i think women better and tidier than men, i am not a slob.
I actually think sexism is in some ways good as done properly be good as we compliment each other as we are a little bit different after all.
