Re: Coronavirus

Maybe more people will take the opportunity to visit the gems they have close to where they live. I'd hope so too Mark but it will purely depend on the pricing in the Travel agents window. We all know by now you can get a fortnights cruise or package holiday to Spain, Mexico, The Caribbean wherever...

Re: Coronavirus

I spent a fruitless half hour last night on Brittany Ferries and failed to make a booking to get back to Spain. Plenty of people booking. Haven't been on their site for a week. I log in to read the MD's updates. Last time I read them all the boats were on Freight duties. Why out of interest could y...

Re: Coronavirus

DA, I know i's a real conundrum. However, will millions be rushing to fly this summer? We like you have already taken the decision to holiday/have days out here this year and see how the land lies next year.....jeez I'll miss the Brittany Ferries experience and also both Plaza Nueva and a revisit t...

Re: Coronavirus

Another thought which I don't know has been addressed, anybody know what the score will be? Loo's? Our nearest shopping centre has had it's toilets closed throughout the crisis, much to the criticism of the public. They have now reopened with a one in one out scheme. Queues outside the ladies is non...

Re: Coronavirus

I agree but the problem is Mark, how do you take the advised measures in 2 x packed airports and 2 x flights?.....it's impossible. And as proven here people who think they are immune don't give a crap about the advice. Just wait until this mob hit the costas beaches. Would the death rate have been a...

Re: Coronavirus

Beachy, even if the air was 100% pure which I see no detailed evidence of you still have the issue of 200 or so people sharing the same few square metres and movement in the aisles. To allow that after months of strict lockdown is what I personally still can't understand,especially as people are sti...

Re: Coronavirus

And yet firms are spending money to improve things.

As I say my couple of bugs I picked up may have just been coincidence, however there is no definite answer to that.

Re: Coronavirus

I agree with the comments above but reckon they are minor risk and avoidable for many outside of London, ie flying from Manchester or Leeds you could easily use your own transport. The risk I'd assume if you are worried about picking up the virus is on the flight itself, 2.5 hours + and breathing re...

Re: Coronavirus

What do you mean by a 5km lockdown? Under Phase one you can drive anywhere in your province. However, if you want to go for a walk it has to be within 1km of your home. If you want to exercise on a bike in full Lycra you can again go anywhere in the province. You cannot go on the beach and sunbathe...

Re: Coronavirus

The real fun will start when winter kicks in and sniffles,colds and flu are rife as they are every year......people won't know what they've got and project fear will make certain their worries are not eased. I'm totally dreading the response when this starts. I'm still reeling from an earlier post s...

Re: Coronavirus

I certainly wouldn’t want to go anywhere in the world with restrictions but probably a lot will. We should have been on holiday now. Our feelings exactly Katy, no way whilst masks, one in and one out of shops etc. are being enforced, where is the fun in that?,ambience shattered. That said it could ...

So while those in malaga and granada cant leave their province. Ppl from other countries will be allowed in? As the dates are right on the border of the end of the phases.
Baffling I agree.

Re: Coronavirus

It will be very interesting as it pans out, it seems like maybe good news for people on mainland Europe to visit if they wish, especially by car but how many Brits will a) be able to go, b) be allowed to go and c) want to go. Were this 12 months ago I'd now be working on ways of getting there in Jul...

Re: Made in China

It should be easy to follow and see if the boycott works in Spain. There's a Chino shop on every corner and more open every time we visit. Let's see if they continue to thrive with the tat they sell. I suspect they will. Why buy a Bellotta lump hammer from your local Spanish run family Ferreteria at...

Talking about getting back to work. At the Mrs's place they furloughed 12 of the secretaries and office staff......My Mrs and the other partners all worked from home to keep what business there was ticking over. There were tears and screams from the young-ish ones who said they were being "victimise...

Re: Coronavirus

The population is not dense here in our village, far less dense than than Competa for example. I never see a soul when walking the local lanes usually. However the population has swelled since day one with the "exercise" brigade having to travel here and it's now coming home to roost. A friend poste...

Re: Coronavirus

Lovely to see our old area and surrounding towns with zero cases, excellent news. This must surely prove that the ultra severe lock down in Spain has worked, for this area at least. Rural villages here in the UK have all been hit with deaths in our neck of the woods......I'm certain that's down pure...

Re: Coronavirus

Confused here too, I don't know who's arguing what. I just know that if someone else other than Trump put this drug forward as a possible stop gap/cure it'd be received with open arms. I'm no medic but the drug has been used before and the side effects must be known so what's to lose? Times aren't n...
