Re: Fuel prices

Going back to fuel prices some garages on the CDS in June were charging as much as 1.42. They vary vastly like the UK with some robbing motorway station charging 1.38 when other places were as little as 1.23

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

DA are you going back the same way? After A levels I spent 6 weeks in Las Navas del Rio Frio which may be very close. Not a remarkable village but beautiful countryside and there is an old palace nearby to visit with a deer park.

Re: Itchy Feet..

If you don't have a vision best to stay put. If you make a mistake it is harder to pick up the pieces when older. Don't fix what isn't broken.

Re: Dental implants

Absolutely agree, my nightmare from hell dentist story is documented on here somewhere. Cost thousands to put right. They maybe ok at routine work but are offering techniques way beyond their capabilities. Lots of adverts in UK for cosmetic dentistry in Poland and other Eastern European countries at...

Re: Prawn sandwiches

I love prawn sandwiches on crusty rolls, I love them on brown seeded sliced bread, love them on pizzas, Infact anyway as long as I don't have to top and tail them. Some Spanish friends like to pick up the heads and suck out all the mush. We have a deal they don't do it in my presence :D

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Never heard of Botellones? Been lots of problems reported in the press. I think some UK cities do have problems but I don't live close to a city so difficult to say. There has always been rowdiness at turning out time, remember when I was young and living in London. Seen it in the Daily Fail but a c...

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

In the USA if duty free is bought at the airport it is delivered straight to your flight and only handed over on landing. Has been like that for as long as I can remember. Athough they have always had strict alcohol laws anyway. Some places in California don't allow it on the beach. I haven't been i...

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Does anyone really buy alcohol at the airport when travelling. Cheaper when you arrive, even in Caribbean etc.

Re: Sites smiliar to Gumtree.

Thanks that was my thought but their gardener came up with an idea. Did them a sheet with photos and put it on a few notice boards including one outside the Ayuntamiento. Nice man, he even arranged to be there when people were viewing as I told him I was worried about their vulnerability. Most items...

Flu Jab

Going for mine today. Was told at the surgery that it will be different this year. Thought they meant the strain of bug but according to BBC something is being added to boost elderly immune systems as last year it only worked for one in ten. Hope it has been well tested :think:

Re: Rosé wine.

Yes I remember getting French wines from Alcampo. El Corte Ingles gourmet shop in Banus has a good selection....at a price! I used to buy Barbadillo White from Cadiz area, crisp and dry and not expensive, perhaps they do a rose?

Re: Rosé wine.

The Californian ones tend to be too sweet. Not a great lover of any but I prefer the blush with a hint on pink. There is a good one from Bilbao region which is barely pink. I prefer them from provence but useless to recommend here as they won't be obtainable.

Is there anything similar to Gumtree in Spain where advertising is free and photos can be uploaded?
