Eye on Spain Newsletter 21 August 2007

Buenos dias

We all know what makes Spain great and many of us really enjoy living here, we don't need to "sell" Spain to you, but at the end of the day "it's not for everyone".  Susan this week takes a look at what might put people off from moving to Spain.  You can add your own comments to the list too!

We've also got some other great articles for you today (the ranting Grumpy Gringo is back too) so sit back and enjoy. 

Happy reading.

Do Not Move to Spain if...
The weather, the lifestyle, the culture, etc.  We all have reasons for moving to Spain but there are also many factors which could put people off from moving here.  Susan lists them for us.

El Grumpy Gringo - Good Old Telefonica!
He's back and he's still moaning!  Mind you, if anyone actually has a good word to say about Telefonica then please stand up.  I thought so, seems everyone is glued to their seats!

Cave Houses in Spain - ADSL Included!
Live in a cave?  Seriously?  Are we going backwards or something?  Apparently not.  Cave houses in Spain are incredibly popular and great value too.  Les tells us what makes them such a great buy.

Great Day Trips From Tenerife
I would assume that most people that go on holiday to Tenerife sit on the beach or by the pool and just chill, but Andy Burrows tells us that there's so much to do in and around Tenerife.

Galicia - Try Something Different
I don't think we've ever looked at Galicia but it is a very interesting region with a great deal of culture and history.  Stephen Morgan tells us what we need to know about Galicia.

Website of the Week
Not sure how to fill out a Spanish Cheque? A new website allows you to simply click on the equivalent buttons and the number in words is displayed for you to copy onto your cheque. You can also use this to write out utility bills, vet bills etc. etc.
