I hate scooter riders trying to kill me on crossings when the green light is in my favour.

that isnt just on the costas, here inland they do it all the time to everyone. even when the police are standing there watching but doing nothing.
seems the only thing they get pulled for is rider or passenger without a hard hat, otherwise they are totally immune to anything.

My life is so much better for the warm climate, and now I have my three dogs for company life is just idyllic. I live nr Orihuela out in the countryside, and it's fantastic to watch the locals just tending the crops at their own slowwww pace, I get lots of freebies too, loads of lemons and oranges, now there's artichokes, broad beans and brocolli is just being picked, spuds up soon, wish there was more cauliflower though as I love that. yummy, life couldn't be much better, unless I had my Steve with me full time.


which goes to show that life is what you make it,
no need for all this trying to force your way of life, standards etc on the locals, that never works and only makes everyone short tempered.

As Concierge for the Spanish section of BE I would like to say hello and welcome.

BE is a very large expat website, so if you have problems finding your way around we have concierges who will try to direct you. The moderators for the Spanish forums are Mitzyboy and Fred James, moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE. Problems and complaints should always be addressed to a moderador who will look into the matter and deal with it efficiently and fairly. Our members who post in the Spain Forums are friendly and helpful with a wealth of knowledge of the issues of living in Spain. At the top of the page you will find a quirkily named thread called Free Beer which is full of important and useful information. Hope you enjoy your time participating in the forums.

Please let me know if you need any further help.

Rosemary
