Re: halloween

I want to ask something relating to this. If i drink say half litre of tap water all ok, however if i have m...

Re: Tourism

The tourist numbers have increased every year to Spain since about 2010 and more in the last few years with turmoil in Turkey and other places, i seen this morning on TV that tourists were returning to Tunisia.

Re: Taxes for residents

I know a few people in a similar situation and the general consensus is if you have substantial income stay non-resident.

Re: HIRING A COACH

Patricia, I was thinking more that you keep the group intact, collect the money and just pass money on to travel agent who will give you the tickets and you just pass on to each individuals involved, it is likely the group fall apart as people will not bother going to the agent and you end up with h...

Re: HIRING A COACH

I would suggest if you worried about liability that you go to travel agent who do regular daily excursions and ask them to set-up the trip. I have only done one as really not my thing, i remember it was only something like €10 pp for day trip and you buy the tickets from travel agent so your out of ...

I have being to Puerto a few times but as tourist stayed in some hotel, i do not know the area well. If its a tourist area like costas i am surprised they have no English, this is the reason i thought it be Spanish. The Spanish economy is in a bit of a mess and i do admire your efforts to try and he...
