Transferring house sale money to UK

I would be grateful for advice of the best way to transfer the money from a sale of a house in Spain to the UK. I have a Spanish bank account but at the moment no UK account, I believe that I would have to be in the UK to open an account so the sale would have already taken place before I was there.

Re: RENEWING MY DRIVING LICENSE

I renewed mine the other day, I went to the van that visits the villages, check when it's in your area on Facebook or possible your town hall. You need your old Spanish licence, and residencia or passport. They will do your health check as long as you don't have serious health problems and take your...

Costa de sol news

Went to my local paper shop to collect my Costa and was told that it had finished, not sure if that meant that particular shop was no longer selling it. Anyone else had problems?

Re: Pay as you go

Didn't explain myself very well, sorry, I should have said a prepaid phone card, probable had a senior moment, I have a Movistar contract but do not pay the extra for UK calls as I make very few. The shop that I previously used has stopped selling them.

Re: British-style Bacon

I haven't tried smoking the meat in a smoke house or smoke kettle, the company produce a smoky flavour salt, as I was never keen on smoked bacon I haven't tried the salts.

Re: British-style Bacon

I asked for advice on this site some months ago and since then I have been curing my own bacon and ham. Curing salts come from Butchers Sundries, I use the Easicure Bacon and Ham mix. It is so quick and easy, 6 days curing in fridge then ready to cook or freeze. I have a ready supply of bacon anytime.

Check out a good map in advance and write out the main details in big letters to have beside you, if you feel a bit panicky find a safe place to stop and check. The roads in Spain a...
