My friend informs me that if you are a pensionista you can obtain a rail card that allows upto 40% off the price of a rail journey. It does depend on which days you chose to travel. I believe Monday to Wednesday is the highest discount and its 25% the rest of the week. They travelled to Barcelona first class which included all their drinks and food! I am sure you could pick up a rail card at the station but if you book through a local travel agent they should be able to apply for it on your behalf.

Is anyone else being effected by the storms we have been having over the last couple of days?? Our internet has been down more than its been up for the last 48 hours and its very frustrating. God helps us in winter.

I give in, what the dickens is the difference between these tenses. I cant even decipher this in English so I have no chance in Spanish. They both appear to mean exactly the same in English but are formed totally different in Spanish.

Our air conditioning unit has been in since Jan/Feb but we have only really used it over the summer. I just wondered should I be cleaning the filters yet or is it too soon? I dont want to start taking it apart if I can avoid it.

I have just read on the Almeria site that Ryanair are stopping their flights to this destination. This is a real blow as when we bought on the Costa Calida we thought we had a good alternative from San Javier and could use Almeria as the distance from where we have bought is about the same. Has anyone else heard anything on this matter?

This would be our first christmas over here and I have heard that many brits head back to the UK as it is very quiet. What do others think? I dont want to turn tail the first christmas but equally dont want to be the only folk left on our urbanisation.
