Re: Flying experience in these days of Covid

But don’t Ryanair still pen everyone in on the stairs between the gate and the plane?

Avocados

We’ll be returning to the uk end November. My question is whether it will be ok to leave the avocados on the tree until then or will they spoil and it would be better to pick and eat them now.

Cheap golf stuff

Need two manual two wheel golf bag trollies. Decathlon has the ideal at €40 but no stock, and I don’t really want to pay more. Obviously trawled a few charity shops but are there any second hand shops around. Obviously tried ebay and amazon but require them too quickly.

Thanks for that. I can’t see that brand online at Leroy but seem to have plenty other fijadores.

Thanks again.

External pre paint treatment

Our pool room external walls have suffered from damp and mould from draining flower pots above. When I scrape the old paint and mould off I’m obviously left with a surface that will not accept new plastico. What is the spanish brand or treatment I need to apply before painting with external paint to...

Justgiving

I want to set up a spanish JustGiving page for a local charity and accept donations in euros. Although the website says it can accept euros I can t see how to do it. Just to be clear it would have to take euros and pay those euros to a spanish account. Not convert them and pay to a uk account. Any i...

Re: Coronavirus

I too am coming out. for me this means a ferry and one night hotel. We’re taking enough food to last us if we consider it uncomfortable in the restauarants - in the hotel I’m figuring if there was a wedding or birthday celebration. My worry once I get down is restaurants. Is there really no distanci...

Re: Residencia. Yes or No ?

I presume they’ll start stamping passports to monitor the 90/180 rule. But what if you enter via shengen borders like France with no controls (or will they stop uk cars). It will effect us as we spend about 90 days apr-July and about 90 days sep-nov. I presume 180 days runs Jan to jun, jul to dec, s...

Re: Travel to the UK

Can’t see it being lifted until Spain’s infection rate (39 per 100,000) matches uk (15 per 100,000).

60% reduction ain’t trivial. WTF sanctioned opening nightclubs? :wtf:q

Pool inverter heater

Hi just been quoted €3,300 for a heater for my 8*4m pool, 60,000 liters.

Sounds like an awful lot of money! Anyone know of a good local installer to get an alternative quote. Frigiliana campo house.
