Re: El Palo to Torre Del Mar

The M167 is the Malaga to Nerja route (it does not go to Vélez) and yes, it does stop in Torre del Mar as I said earlier. Most of the services go via the coast but the Directo ones don't, they join the motorway just before La Cala del Moral and leave it near the El Ingenio Centro Comercial to go int...

Re: El Palo to Torre Del Mar

You can catch an M260 service (Málaga to Vélez-Málaga) in El Palo which stops in Torre del Mar, or alternatively a Málaga-Nerja or Málaga-Torrox bus (don't know the route numbers for the latter two, sorry).

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

Francesco at Punto y Pasta makes it the Italian way, without cream, but also offers an alternative with cream for those customers who actually prefer it that way - probably because that's the only version they have ever eaten.

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

Are these places actually owned by Italians? lots on the west coast are owned by Spaniards serving awful pizzas. One genuine Italian chain is almost unrecognisable as authentic Italian. They have compromised and gone native, a bit like Chinese, they adapt to suit the clientele with dishes like gamb...

Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

Apart from pasta and pizzas, the menu at La Trattoria features hot dogs and burgers, plus steak and chips. That puts me off trying it as it wouldn't be my idea of an Italian restaurant, more like fast food. I also think it is not particularly good value at €7.50 for a pizza, when we can go and have ...

Re: The rain in Spain

The Junta de Andalucia has relaxed the restrictions on water use for irrigation in La Axarquia from the 60% cut originally imposed to a 25% reduction in the normal allowance. Seems sensible, as Viñuela is still well under half full. http://www.diariosur.es/axarquia/junta-suaviza-restricciones-201803...

The latest announcement from the Junta de Andalucia said that they would re-assess the situation once the current rainy spell has ended, with the intention of reducing the restrictions.

Re: Gas Estufas

We had a blue flame gas heater in our old house for a couple of years before we moved. It was more powerful than the old catalytic ones we'd had before (4.2kw) and the heat seemed to be more diffused around the room rather than it being very warm just in front of the heater but not further away.

Re: Applying Online for appoinment at INSS for Health Card

I think, once you have registered the documentation with the health centre, that you can be seen by a doctor whilst you are waiting for the actual card to arrive (I hope your Dad's won't take another 3 months!). In fact the administrator who registered us asked us if we wanted to make appointments t...

Re: Applying Online for appoinment at INSS for Health Card

When we registered our S1s with the INSS in Vélez-Málaga (at the end of 2014) we were told that we would receive, by post, a document confirming our entitlement to healthcare which would take around 2 weeks. Then we would have to take that document to our health centre and register with them, follow...

Re: Postal method for passport

As it seem from what Patricia says that they are still using DHL, I am sure they will. It's their standard procedure, I have had parcels delivered by them from companies as well as my passport, and they always do the same thing. You get a text telling you the delivery date and giving you the option ...

Re: Postal method for passport

From memory (which is a bit hazy by now!) once they had received the old passport the status on the system changed from Awaiting Information (or similar wording) to Application Being Processed.

Re: Postal method for passport

I sent it by certificado so will see how long it takes to get there. I presume they'll keep me informed. It seems a better system than it used to be by post so far. When I renewed my passport, which is about 18 months ago now, the Passport Office didn't keep me informed as such, I just had to keep ...

Re: Postal method for passport

The whole process was very easy. Give your email address or phone number and you will recieve notice of day and time of delivery. It was more a question of what method for sending the old passport back to the UK Mark. Delivery back to me with the new one may be a problem if it's by courier though, ...

Re: malaga airport bus

I think your distance is more than a bit off, Costakid. Calle Larios finishes at the Plaza de la Constitucion and you then have to turn to the left to get across to the Alameda Principal. It's a good bit further than 50m. More like 300m, I'd say.
