At this point I have to share a true conversation that I had last week. I am not fluent but my Turkish is quite good, normally I do not have a problem being understood, but this one had me and the missus in hysterics.

We went into a pet shop to look for a dog kennel, the conversation went like this:-

Me; Have you got any dog kennels?
Man; No but we will have later in the day.
Me; Ah we live 50km away and cannot wait, we will call in next week.
Man; How big do you want.
Me; Large, what are they made of?
Man; Made of?
Me; Plastic or wood?
Man; They are live
Me; How do you mean live?

At this point the missus twigged that he was talking about dogs not kennels.

I loved it.

We still don't have a kennel yet.

Re: Advantages/Disadvantages

Just a small heads up; there is some discussion in today's paper about UK expats paying an annual fee to live in EU with 'EU citizenship'. (The Times.Front page).

Re: Advantages/Disadvantages

Never been to Spain can't imagine having to eat good quality food and drinking decent wines when I can eat koftes and drink insipid beer. My brother in law has a place in a place called moirera I think it's called maybe one day when we sell yalikavak. But until then I will stick to the Greek islands.

Re: Advantages/Disadvantages

Moraira is about 35 mins from us. Beautiful and quite upmarket. It's the coastal resort to the town of Teulada and is very much a spot for the boating fraternity
Moraira has some exclusive/expensive restaurants and a beautiful marina. Like to potter about it on a nice afternoon but not my sort of place. Gorgeous, but expensive. Saw some 2 bed seaview appts, 400k Sterling

If it's the same place, you fly to Alicante and it's a 40 minute drive, I think he paid 350k euro about 6 years ago for a 4 bed villa up a mountain and he tells me there are loads of top class restaurants nearby, I think it's near a place called Calpe.
Just not sure posh is for me.

Re: Advantages/Disadvantages

That's it ok

Calpe too is nice though not as upmarket as Moraira.

Gets its name from the enormous rock located in the bay which can be seen all along that coast.

That whole headland is drop dead gorgeous.

We are inland from that area so prices for everything are dramatically cheaper but we do visit there very regularly.

Re: Advantages/Disadvantages

Linseys oldest school friend lives and works in Calpe so a visit will happen just not sure I want to stay hAlf way up a mountain, been there and done that but don't want to offend plus loads of the extended family have taken the piss and had plenty of free holidays so don't want to fall in that camp.

Re: Advantages/Disadvantages

It's a beautiful area Martin. You should try it,even for a week or less. A lot of people even go there for long weekends. As we are a wee bit further we are almost equidistant between Valencia and Alicante aports. Access is very easy and well priced inc car hire. Picked up car with extra ins last trip, 68 all in for a week-car hire for me in Turkey was 80lira a day
