My girlfriend recently bought me some socks from this website : http://www.lemonadeattack.com/ I just thought I'd post about them on here because its a small Spanish business and the quality of the socks is really good, not like the rubbish sold on the street markets and in chinese shops. Good way to support the spanish economy and get yourself some comfortable, colourful socks at the same time!

Hi My partner and I are thinking of moving to the Almeria region.  He works offshore and is out of the country for more than 183 days a year, in the UK this means he does not pay tax on his earnings, does anyone know if the rules are similar in Spain?

Hi, me, my husband and 2 year old are moving to Almeria and hoping to open a little gift shop, but we are not sure of areas, obviously we are looking for somewhere with a thriving tourist trade but also somewhere to settle with a young child so a nice school is essential, if anyone can give us any suggestions regarding this we would be most grateful.  Thank you :)

does anyone have any info they can share regarding owning a small tractor in Spain, ie, what licences required, what paperwork needed, insurances.  We have seen one we are interested in, but the vendor says it does not have paperwork (at least he was honest!), so, is it easy to get paperwork?

We are considering buying a property on the Huerta Neuva development at Los Gallardos but have heard of several serious issues that might affect our decision. Has anyone had problems living here, is anyone aware of potential problems with certain property owners/renters or the condition of the development as a whole? Many thanks
