Santander 123 account

I see from publicity that the spanish santander 123 account still pays 3% interest. Does anyone know if that is available for a non resident bank account and does anyone have any experience of opening such an account at the branch on Plaza Espana in Nerja? IE can they speak English and what document...

Re: Killing weeds with aguafuerte

Some towns in Span have banned glyphosate herbicides, of which roundup is one. And best to stock up becuase the EU/UK may well go the same way, after a rather nasty cancer case in the USA last year.

Re: Killing weeds with aguafuerte

Definitely round up. Minimally diluted it killed my yuccas which grew like weeds. Aguafuerte was lapped up like milk!

Re: Septic Tank Replacement

And of course it's now two tanks - the usual one and then another for the grey water. Makes for a lovely installation.

Over sized cheques

Hi

Want to give a presentation cheque as a prize. I know in the uk banks will issue a special large size cheque.

Do you know if I can do this in Spain. Or any alternative ideas that would give a photographic opportunity.

Hi, I have an old wood burning stove, and the sealing rope needs replacing. I’ve been on google and watched some you tube but have the following issues: 1. All the videos show the rope being applied to a groove running the whole way round the DOOR. 2. My stove has the rope applied to the body of the...

Re: Tourism

I guess that’s a prediction as we are still in 2018! Can’t say I’ve read or heard about such a prediction but if true there could be a number of reasons not least the implications (if any) of Brexit on travel to EU countries. Also, why would one go on holiday to somewhere where the locals don’t wan...

Re: Primera Air

Presumably you’re covered for what you paid if you paid by credit card. But blimey, what a nightmare if you flew out yesterday morning and now have to buy flights from other airlines which will no doubt be increasing their prices substantially for flights in the next two weeks.

Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

Although a longer distance we had a spectacular tour through extramadura this year. Salamanca, caceres, Trujillo, zafra, Merida all places worthy of a visit. We also stopped in Burgos this year at the NH Palacio. What a lovely town with FANTASTIC tapas bars where you can graze contentedly all night ...
