Whilst I often use forums and Facebook pages as a source of information, I sometimes find the information misleading or advice provided off-putting. This was the case when I began researching registering a UK car in Spain. In fact I found so much contradictory information, out there, that i decided to write about my own experience of registering a UK car In spain in the hope that it would help others 🙂
Now some of you are going to say … “why did you bring your car to Spain, it’s easier just to buy a Spanish car”.
I am not going to argue with that. There are certainly many benefits in having a Spanish car and it maybe we buy a Spanish car in the future. For us, it was simply a matter of circumstances that led us to having a UK car in Spain. Continue reading
This wasn’t what I’d imagined my first contribution to the Blog would be … ‘The challenges of being a Vegetarian, married to a pork loving carnivore in rural Spain’ was more of what I had in mind.

Just as the title suggests, this is not really a blog entry, Instead think of it as a public broadcast service !
To be honest, It’s nothing that serious we just thought we would let you know that one foot in the cave has now branched out into the scary big world of both Facebook and Google + (make your choice depending on which one is your poison).
Forums have become part and parcel of our everyday life There are forums for almost anything you can think of and they provide a wealth of information. I have used them for digital photography tips, advise on cave diving setups, how to solve software problems, when to use specific spanish words … and everything in between.
So, when we started to look into buying a property in Andalucia in general and a cave house in particular, a google search of potential forums was one of my first ports of call.
