Re: Flight delays from UK due to bad weather

Forget the weather, Ryanair are going on strike on the 20th. Very thoughtful of them when everyone is trying to get home for Xmas.

Re: Mario Zambrano

In this day and age being able to leave something in a locker and walk away seems very dangerous. I can’t believe this service is available the way the world is now.

Re: Online passport renewal

Not sure if you can upload photos onto the passport office site. As I said my daughter did everything online but had the pics taken at a proper photo shop. They then checked them on the passport office website as they have an agreement with then. She then had passport in 4 days.

Re: Online passport renewal

My daughter had hers done at a photography shop as she wanted them to be 100% correct. They had a system linked to the passport office which checked and verified them as ok. The rest was plain sailing.

Not sure if Ikea is open on a Sunday all year. The market is very close to Ikea so a bonus to do both on same trip i guess.

Re: Tools in Martos

Try the big market near the airport. Every Sunday. Very cheap but get there early for the bargains and the best stuff.

Re: Re registering camper van

Welcome, If all the lights and speedo are fit for Spanish driving it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Is it an EU model built for the EU?

Terrible that thousands of people have lost there money but I bet if they think about the sales pitch it was too good to be true.
