It's hot and we're bothered...so we're all taking our holidays this month.
This means that emails from us will be short on the ground and anwyay, most of you won't care as you'll probably be on holiday too.
So I just wanted to leave you with my list of the top 10 things can do to keep you busy throughout August, wherever you are:
1. Grab Spain Uncut Videos At The Reduced Rate :-)
The reduced price for Spain Uncut expires tomorrow on the public site so grab the videos now so you have plenty to watch and learn about moving to and living in Spain:

4. Relax With A Humourous Book About Spain
If you haven't read Deborah Fletcher's "Bitten by Spain" then you're not a true Spain aficionado. This is a brilliantly written and funny account of their move to Spain. I'm not going to spoil it for you, just read it whilst sitting by the pool on holiday!

5. Learn To Speak Some "Street" Spanish
Streetwise Spanish is exactly that and is perfect for those who want to make their existing Spanish more authentic and less text bookish. Peter Christian shares his own experiences with the language and culture, tying the two in a very down to earth, light hearted way.

related to Spain. If you're new to the site you will have missed some excellent articles from previous months and years.

7. Enjoy Some Siesta TV Time
We've taken a little break from filming for the summer but you can still enjoy all the great videos we've done for our Siesta Show this year.
The full list of videos is the bottom of this page.
Some of our favourite episodes are:
Spanish wine tasing amateur night (I get drunk)
Some funny outtakes! (I can't present)
How to order a beer in Spain (I get drunk again)
We visit the local village of Casares (A great day out)
Tapas tasting at Lo de Andres in Sabinillas (Yummy food and wine)
There are loads there, 78 in total, so plenty to keep you busy!
8. Not Booked Your Hire Car Yet?
Oh dear! If you need a hire car this month you may be out of luck as there don't seem to be any. It will certainly keep you busy trying to find an available car that won't cost the earth.
If you do need one try the car hire search on EOS.
9. What? You've Not Booked Your Holiday Yet Either???
Everyone deserves a holiday so don't let expensive hire cars put you off. There are some great deals on holiday apartments and hotels in Spain at the moment so do a bit of searching and bag yourself a cheap break.
10. Arrange To Meet Up With Your Neighbours
Use Eye on Spain for what it was intended! To get to know your neighbours. Find your community forum or post on the general forum and arrange some meet ups to make some new friends whilst you are in Spain.
Well, I hope all that will keep you busy this month.
If you're coming out to Spain on your holidays then bring plenty of sun protection and Euros and have a great one!
