Re: Cadiz/Jerez/Arcos de la Frontera

Look for buses that go to Ronda-see here : http://www.tgcomes.es/horarios_16.htm and here: http://www.losamarillos.es/venta/busqueda.jsp On the Amarillos site go to 'comprar billetes' and you can put in start and destination to see what is available.

Have a good trip!

Re: Winter Trip-suggestions and advice please.

I second Puerto de Ste Maria and Cadiz. Sanlucar is a lovely place near there too-we stayed at a little hotel right on the square -fab seafood places and a short stroll down to the beach.

Does anyone know how BBC radio channels will be affected? I assume in the same way as the tv ones? :(

Re: what to ship clothes wise

I've found sleeveless jackets, fleeces and 'puffa ' jackets very useful-if you have dogs invaluable for early morning walks etc. I have one fleece hat that I use for a couple of weeks in the winter. YES re electric blankets...Also slipper socks handy in winter. I wondered about bringing out heavier ...

Re: Hot Tub - Jacuzzi

We have room for a pool but not the money ... also no mains water. We have showers in the house not a bath and I miss being able to have a good soak. Like Gerry and Steve I am interested in the bubbles for relaxation, cooling off in summer (I am assuming this is possible if the tub is in the shade?)...

Does anyone know if this firm is still in business? The English site seems to be down. If there are any other good jacuzzi providers or shops in the region I'd appreciate contacts/links. Also can anyone give me a ballpark figure for how much a small outside jacuzzi would costs to buy and install? We...

Prepaid smart phone

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a pre paid deal for a smart phone? I don't want a contract just to use a smart phone in Spain for three months or so. A friend in Germany says it is possible to by pre paid cards and you can also buy internet flat rates limited to a certain amounts of days. ...

Re: Vinegar- good for removing 'cal' from pans....

I use vinegar for cleaning -Mercadona now sell white vinegar in litre bottles very cheaply and I have one in each bathroom and one in the kitchen. Good for getting tea stains out of mugs too.
