I hope he does come back to us, there've been a few who've made the move and we dont ever here from them again!!! And to me, thats the interesting and probably the most informative bit. The getting here and the first few days/weeks after arriving

The disappearance probably has a lot to do with trying to get telefonica to sort out the internet! It took us weeks to sort out and now I've seen the bills, I wish I'd not bothered!

I couldn't believe the extortionate amount I was expected to pay in the CR and Spain for internet. So I decided to abandon telefonica and use one of those companies that supply internet without telefonica,monthly price 34 euro instead of 70 euro we were paying telefonica. We use Skype so didn't need the landline.
I phoned telefonica to cancel the contract and they asked why - I told them and after some haggling they dropped the monthly price to 30 euros inc. IVA, internet and free calls throughout Spain. A reduction of 40 euros, just like that!!
So0 I suggest you try that, Lynn.

Originally I was moving to Alhaurin el Grande to stay with friends, Ended up just outside Velez Rubio....Long and sad story of pictures not showing the real condition of a property!

Todays been lovely! Tuesday night was so so cold - the snow was coming past the window horizontally and at its coldest was -6 thru the night. Couldnt get the doors open on the car the next morning cos the seals had frozen to the door.
