My wife and I were among a number of people recently who had to give up, and board the train without a ticket. We we going only one stop. I did not see a ticket collector before we got o...

Re: Voting in the Spanish election in April

Reminds me of the graffiti I saw years ago, on a wall in Holloway Road at election time...

"Don't vote - VOMIT "...

I believe Jeremy Corbyn is the local MP there days.

Need I say more !

Re: fee-free bank account

Morning all, I'm looking for a fee-free bank account without conditions (such as having a monthly salary paid in). Just wondered if anyone knew of a (preferably national) Spanish bank that offers this. Thanks in advance, Ollie That is like having "Brexit" without conditions. As they say, ...

Re: Finding a Renfe timetable

Have been using the "RENFE" site for years without any problems.

Easy to use, and not a taxi in sight ! ( or site )

Re: Driving England to Anderlucia

Not trying to be picky, but unless you take more care with spelling you will end up in the wrong place..... Reminds me of the story, of the American tourist couple flagging down a taxi in London years ago with the request to take them to "Tooting Common". On arriving , the taxi driver sto...

Re: Travelling around Malaga

Doing a bit more investigating...

Seems there is a bus from "Sailtre ( Jacinto Verdaguer ) to Paseo de Sancha ( escuela turismo ), which seems to cover 90% of the journey, with a walk either side.

Thanks costakid.

Travelling around Malaga

We shall be in Malaga for two days mid month. Is it fair comment, that the metro system is presently just west of Maria Zambrano station, and that any journeys in the other direction are taxi, bus, or indeed walking. Our initial journey on arriving is towards, Paseo de Sancha. I am not sure if there...

Re: none residents

Maybe I am phrasing that wrong. What he meant was, hitting the the part of the the gas bottle, from where the gas comes up, with something like the end of a match, ( tooth pick might work too I suppose ) unlit of course, to draw some gas, before reconnecting the whole thing. No flames involved ! Its...

Re: none residents

Going to arrange my 5 year "service" when I am out next week, so hopefully this may help the gas situation.

Glad I am not alone in that one. One trick from a neighbour, was to "prime" the gas nozzle of the gas canister with a match, before connecting it.

Re: none residents

My first job is trying to light the gas. Always after some months away, it never seems to want to start. I sometimes just give up, go up town for something to eat, and tackle it when I get back. Always a nice feeling when it finally decides to play ball ! We usually get in late anyway, so next day i...

Re: High Interest Bonds

The problem is, as the old adage goes.

There is one born every minute.

There are numerous stories of people being conned out of their pensions with dodgy investments, no matter how often they are told "if it too good to be true" etc.
