It's strange that being a 20 year old, having lived here all my life that it was such a surprise to me, or maybe it wasnt. The areas shows are 99.9% of the time Benalmadena and Fuengirola which are well known as...

The spanish minimum wage system isnt as simple as something per hour, its more elaborate from what I know. I believe that it equates to 5€/hour as the minimum wage. My family have a pool company and workers get around 10€/hour. Also had a construction company and paid employees around 12€ per hour t...

Im no tree expert but surely if you dig it out with a big chunk of soil around it and wrap all that in a cloth to keep the soil and it together (wet) then transplant it immediately to the new site and water it in with fertiliser on the bottom, making sure the soil is the same ph and type as the tree...

Spanish Lad, with all due respect, installing a pool cover and particularly a heat pump is something very specialised and requires a lot of knowledge. I would suggest you stick to painting rejas and leave the above to the professionals

Well Mr S, let me ask you this, how is asking "shall i bring 15kg bottles to spain from uk" a legitimate question? Firstly why bother, secondly obviously they wont work or wont be legal, thirdly Im sure there is enough to transport here why add such a silly thing.
