F1 Barcelona

Looks as though Verstappen has AGAIN been handed the race on a plate, why was Perez told to hand over the lead ? F1 administration is becoming a joke !

Petrol prices

In the summer months I live in Helsinki and it's never been a cheap place to live but one adapts and gets used to it, today I filled up my car with petrol, a mere 2.38 per litre, I may buy a battery powered bycycle :crazy: !!

@elusive Haven't yet finalized everything. The trip is under process. But my wish list definitely has Córdoba, Ronda, Málaga, the Alpujarras, and the white villages.

Re: Moving BACK to Spain

You don't specify your age but, if you are over 70 I would advise you not to buy, I have been struggling with this dilemma for years and am still not convinced that it's a practical move. I divorced some years ago and I'm financially very sound, I considered buying in Gran Canaria (where I live in t...

Re: Spanish Wills & Lawyer no longer in business - questions.

I suppose the most important question, in my view is, do you have copies of any or all of your transactions with this lawyer and most importantly do you have copies of the will and after death instructions ? I'm no expert but these are the things that would be uppermost in my mind !

A friend of mine who has been a motorcyle mechanic for over 40 years has tracked down a Brough superior SS80, no papers, no background info and no pedigree.

Re: Eu long term residents wishing to move to Spain

From first hand experience I can tell you that it is not a simple task. regardless of where you live now you will still have to apply for residencia in Spain. The main stumbling block will be medical cover, you don't automatically acquire it as of right, the Spanish authorities will want to know (an...

Re: Welcoming the displaced people from the Ukraine.

Olive, I believe that they're just staying at the hotel for a short while to sort out papers etc. and then probably going direct to stay with families in the area. Also I hear that when they've settled in, the people who can work will be offered jobs, not sure how that will work due to the language...
