Re: Northern Spain

Yes, I live in northern Spain but I don’t live everywhere in Northern Spain.
To travel to Galicia is probably 5-6 hours by car. A litle more than that and you can drive to the North of Andalucia.

Premiership on the radio

This year, as the last, premiership football is received through Deezer , who have the rights for Spain so no VPN needed. For you phone, download the App. You need to sigh in cause it is a similar service to Tunein. You can listen to any match, useful if you follow one of the smaller teams or want t...

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

A big case is needed for various reasons. If you are spending over a week away or sometimes it might be a shopping trip.

Recent trips
London 2 day shopping trip, big case needed.
Dublin 4 weeks, big case needed.
London 4 days, small case.
Ibiza 1 week, small case.

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

The 20kg case already costs 70 euros extra and when I take one with Easyjet or Ryanair, I usually ask them to check in the smaller one as well at the check in desk to avaid having to take it with me through security.

Makes no difference because I have to wait at the belt anyway.

Re: SmartyDNS

They don't unblock the UK Netflix, only the USA one. More often and not the region settings don't work apart from Smart DNS' USA setting. I have changed the settings to UK in UnblockUs but I'm still getting the Spanish site. I think Smart DNS is one of the only ones that can circumnavigate the geo-b...

Re: UK Bank Accounts

There is a raft of advice in today's release of the government's Brexit "no-deal" papers"
I suspect that the no deal scenario that is being put forward by the government at the moment is project fear but aimed at the EU in order to get a deal.

Re: SmartyDNS

I'm not clear if your post says you prefer the USA Netflix or not. If you want to change it back to Spain or UK, it can be changed in the settings.
Sign in, go to regions, then click the Netflix off tab.

It's possible to change various websites region settings on the page.

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

I have taken 4 Ryanair Flights over the summer with no problem with delays or cancellations. I never reserve my seat because I'm not bothered who sits next to me. The strange thing with the large group of students because we bought the tickets at various times and the policy of having to reserve sea...

Re: Android tv box recommendations

Fire Tv is the best. You could buy a stick but fire TV is a box. It’s an Android based box but the apps you want are built for it whereas apps for Android tend to be built for small screens.it’s also possible to download Kodi onto it. Try downloading Iplayer from Google play on your PC. That’s how I...

Re: Help with accommodation in Andalucia

Have you thought about using Madrid as you center point? Easy to get to from the U.K. From there it should be possible to get to Andalucía and Barcelona by plane and high speed train. As already posted, Day trips are unadvisable due to the long distance between the main cities but in theory, it woul...

Re: Astra 19 with a 1.3m dish is it possible???

There are two other options.
Are you going down the the genuine Sky TV route with IPTV. if not use a Now TV box. I have never heard of anybody having a problem with that as long as you have decent internet speeds.
The other way is to look at the Spanish suppliers.

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

You could do a triangle route around Madrid, although the capital is always worth a visit.
Segovia, then Avila and finally Toledo all absolutely magnificent Castilian towns.

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

As with everything, there are good and bad points. Without Ryanair, I wouldn’t have visited many of the places I have over the last few years. They have often dictated where I have visited because they have made short stays and breaks, not only available but also affordable. Which company I use to f...
