Default Greetings!

Hiya,

Im Yossa, short for Yossarian (Catch 22 anti-hero) not Yossa Hughes (Boys from blackstuff). Just turned 44 last week and quite happy with that. Avid climber/mountaineer and sailor, though not all at the same time...

Ive spent 27 years in IT and decided to quit my London-Newcastle-New York job (I kid you not!) and drop out for a while. Highly paid jobs come with high levels of stress and terrible politics. So, I bought a boat, set several of my suits on fire, which was lush, and decided that bimbling about was all I wanted to do for a while.

I sailed to some fantastic places, met some fantastic people, told many fantastic tall stories and drank fantastic amounts of grog.

Three years later, I find myself 3,000ft up a mountain in Spain, sans boat.

Must have been the grog...

If you want to contribute to a thread just click on reply and write away. If you want to start a new thread go back to the initial page of "La Tasca" or the main Spain page. Towards the top, under the flags, it says new thread. Put a title and away you go.

I'm on here most days 'cos I find it interesting - usually (!). I most enjoy talking about this, my adopted country, and am not so keen on talking about the wider issues of life on this forum, although I have been known to do so.
As I've been here a long time, and have Spanish family, I believe I've been able to help some people out over the last couple of years. And, although it sounds corny, I've also found out a lot about life in Spain through the people on this forum who are living in different parts of Spain and who are living a different life to mine.
Long may it continue!

It's such a great feeling, burning those suits ... (or in my case carting them all down to the Oxfam shop!)

Hepa here,

I am an old retired Git.

I first came to the Canary Island of Gran Canaria in 1962 on a Shell oil tanker called Achatina and that must have been the instigation of a life time relationship with this wonderful archipelago.

I first visited the Island of El Hierro in 1995, bought a house here in 2000. Having spent long periods here during the winter months, finally managed to sell, house, car, children, grandchildren, cats dogs, everything in the U.K., just over two years ago, and what a relief it was!

I do not have any educational qualifications whatsoever, I worked for fifty years.
I also paint, usually walls and ceilings, mainly in white.

Here where I live, there are probably another two English residents, we also have a Port Policeman of Spanish parentage, who says he was born in Wolverhampton. Therefore very little English is spoken. Crime is virtually unknown, people park cars with the keys in the ignition and engines running, some never lock their houses!!

Life here in the most southerly part of Spain is good, the climate is fantastic, the people are very accommodating and kind. My neighbours are Venezolanos and that is where my Pseudonym is from, I'm told it is a form of greeting in Venezuela.

Here is my home, here I am content to stay,


Hepa

I'm English, live in the UK and visit Denia several times a year.

I have two boys, 15 and 21, and love my life in the UK where my family and friends are. However, I've always had a soft spot for Spain and wouldn't rule out living there on a part time basis if my current work plans do not materialise.
