Re: Acclimatising to the heat

I know people moan about the weather in the UK etc, but sometimes it's too hot! At least if it's a cloudy 15 degrees, you can still get outside! Not if it's 40. People come on their hols to Spain...

Re: Acclimatising to the heat

I've been in Granada since early July, and only for the Covid outbreaks etc, I'd have gone back to Ireland for the summer. Too bloody hot, and I don't think anyone can ever get used to it, even the...

Re: Current rules on entering Spain

Hi all. I fear I might well not get the answer I'd like but I'll ask anyway. Moved (more or less) to Granada last year, and have been working remotely while in Spain, and travelling back home to the...

Re: 23 years old thinking about moving back

Try a smaller city. Try it for a while. I would imagine it would be 100% a different experience than Paris. Worse case scenario, you can go back to England. Or try and find a city in France where you...

Re: Gibraltar 2

Do you work in the online gambling industry? Seems to be a lot of negative press these days about it. Some attractive salaries though for Gibraltar. I work in online marketing and am bouncing between...

Re: Gibraltar 2

My first trip to Gibraltar last weekend. Only stayed for the afternoon. First impressions. Strange! Very odd/different/interesting. Spain feels so far away even though it's not. It's a nice...

Re: Why do Mallorcans think they can push-in queues?

bob_bob I haven't driven there, but yes, I'd agree, they're bad there as well. I don't know what it is about the mentality of a lot of people in Spain and Italy. They've lots of great things in both...

Re: Why do Mallorcans think they can push-in queues?

It's the driving and parking that gets me in Spain. It happens everywhere, not just Spain, but I do notice it more in Spain. In Granada, it seems a lot of people just pull up in their car and do what...

Dog kennel/baby sitters in Granada ?

Hi all. My girlfriend, who is from Granada, have been looking at dog hotels/baby sitters in Granada. We only recently got a rescue dog so it’s all new to us.
We are supposed to be going to Ireland...

Re: Gibraltar 2

I've dragged the thread off topic. Yup, colony is just a word. That's how I see Gib and NI. I have no desire as such to see it returned to Spain. I think the Spanish right wing are provoking...

Re: Gibraltar 2

A large number of Scots migrated there and were given land: colonised. The British colonised Ireland. They took the best land. At least don’t leave facts out that are convenient to your argument.
So...

Re: Gibraltar 2

Ok then. Northern Ireland and Gibraltar are areas that were originally colonized by the British. Perhaps there aren’t any descendants in Gibraltar now but I still see it as a colony. I don’t agree...

Re: Gibraltar 2

Does anyone really believe this scaremongering? Even the language used: "REVENGE". It's like something The Sun would do to hype up the lads.
It's almost as hilarious as loyalists in Northern Ireland...

Re: Gibraltar 2

Not wanting to go off topic, but where did I say I was wrong? I said that I think Gibraltar and Northern Ireland are colonies. Ireland was colonised by the British. What other word could you use?...

Re: Gibraltar 2

Indeed, right to self determination is important in Gibraltar, as in Northern Ireland, but I still see it as a colony. I'm not saying that as a negative thing, just an observation. Same as Northern...
