    I once owned a condo in Calpe, on the Costa Blanca but would have loved to buy, and planned to, in Andalucia but on the Atlantic near Cadiz as oposed to Malaga and the Med. Alas we sold to a German couple and never did buy in Cadiz. Beautiful part of the world though.

    As an ex pat, I want to tell you what happened to me today.

    Walked through the church gardens and some bloke come out of an office there and says to me,"hOow long have you lived in Nantwich?"
    "seven years," I replied.
    "go home and bring me back proof of that and I,ll give yer £35"

    to which I did and he did.

    Apparently EVERYONE who lives in a certain triangle part of the town is elligible to have this money if they proove that they have lived her for seven years,AND continue to have it till they die or the legacy, left by a former benefactor, runs out of dosh.

    Now isn,t that amazing and well worth the soaking I got in the rain.

    I like very much what I do (properties abroad, mostly Spain) and know my onions; well, most of them. The one question I cannot honestly answer is which part of Mediterranean Spain would you prefer?
    Both have got their good points depending on your point of view of course.
    Prospective buyers are understandably edgy and suspicious when taking each vital step. Most can take as long as three years from saying, 'What about ....................' to actually doing it. They then say, 'Wish I had done it years ago.'
    I usually lighten the conversation by introducing myself as the organiser of the Escape Committee. Yes, I enjoy doing what I do very much .

    Sincerily, I prefer the north of Spain... I do not like the Sun, I prefer the cold, the rain and the long nights... here the weather like is perfect for me... Too, coz I do not like the Mediterranean culture... I love the virgin coast, I do not like a beach with a lot of people, tall buildings, hotels and more hotels, ...

    At Mediterranean I know somes are where are English districts...

    One is in Alicante, in a village called Torrevieja.

    And other is in Málaga, Mijas.

    Hiya Gerard. We got going to Alvor which we use as a base, in 1997 so this is our 10th year on the trot so the kids have pretty much grown up with the place and the locals we've got to know including holiday makers which always go out at the same time as us. Monchique up in the mountains shows you how the locals live too, the olive groves and little shacks. Alvor is a quiet fishing village with a harbour where they cook the sardines out in the open, it's great and not built up like your Benidorms with loads of high rise and burger bars. The 'strip' of a night though is just as lively as anywhere, chocker with stalls, street sellers, artists painting portraits and charictertures, karoake bars, themed pubs but without the drunken singles and stag parties of Albufera. We visited friends golfing in Villamora and one of our local friends in Silves. The Waterpark and Zoo Marine are at Guia and are spectacular but when you're up on the top of the water ride waiting to go down, it's a far way and nothing to see but barren land for miles around. My better half will normally go back with the youngest one who is 15 at about 3am while us 3 hit the lower end of the strip until 6. For those who want the night clubs, Praia De Rocha and Portimao are a 10 minute taxi ride away.

    Ha ha, I remember that story about that pair ha ha.

    We went with friends once, the woman is a teacher but is dead sound and down to earth, not one of the never off duty type. I saw her at the pool staring and grinning across at a lad facing us 'Yes, it is me' she said, lifting her sunglasses, it only turned out to be a lad she teachers at school, how much bad luck is that, going away during your 6 weeks school hols, 2000 miles away and meeting your teacher. We got talking to his mam and dad and met them a few times in the evening.

    We meet people who now who go out to the same place twice a year, usually April as well as August, lucky sods. We used to love the Veronica's in Las Americas, Tenerife until the drugs barons and riff raff made it their home and then the local mayor shut some of the pubs out there. That was our first choice from 86 until 96 with the odd Ibiza or Majorca thrown in now and again too but Ibiza is too young and clubby now haha.

    We went to Lisbon, very busy, a beautiful city, the architecture is fantastic.. Fatima is a great trip too. I'm not religious but to see the festival by night from the hills and look down on the thousands of Pilgrims in a candle lit procession is magical. It's where St. Bernadette is supposed to have seen Our Lady of course.

    If i ever make enough money to move abroad, i'd be in Barcelona like a flash. Absolutely love the place away from the tourist haunts and cheap as chips if you look around.

    Pity the cost of buying has shot through the roof there, and with a direct link to Speke as well.
