malagatapas

Málaga City has for too long, been “tarred” with the image of the Costa del Sol. It is not. It is a City with a stunning historical centre and architecture, amazing cultural attractions, a port to rival anywhere on the Med … and don’t even get us started on the fabulous food on offer!
In the TapasInMalaga blog we aim to share our insiders take on this wonderful city that is fast becoming “the jewel” in the Mediterranean – a City that should be on your “must visit” list.

The Flexible Chef

I love living in southern Spain’s Andalucía in the Sierra Sur de Jaén between the cities of Jaén, Granada and Córdoba. It is an unspoilt part of the Iberian Peninsula and mi poco pueblo blanco is in the heart of Spain’s olive producing region where I am surrounded by zillions upon zillions of olive groves.

I suppose if you don’t like olives and the delicious greenish golden oil they produce then this place isn’t for you.

It would be dreamy of me to say that I live here alone with just my dog but I don’t. I do live here alone with my patio, roof terrace, travel wall, herb garden and Boris the spider who lives in the window between my office and patio.

And when I am not gazing at olive trees I read, cook, listen to music and write my blog.

Journey To A Dream Blog

This is our story.

Andalucia Diary

Andalucia Diary started as a personal blog for friends and family and has evolved into a comprehensive collection of seasonal travel notes from across Andalucia’s eight provinces. Posts include information and tips on where to stay, things to see and do, great places to eat as well as photography of the region’s beautiful natural spaces and historic cities, towns and villages.

Tamara


A Foot in Two Campos

Tamara’s blog aims to be more than just a travel blog or the story of a newcomer in Spain. She challenges stereotypes, waxes lyrical about the minutiae of life in her pueblo, contrasts it with UK life, and occasionally gets philosophical. There’s usually a dash of humour, and often a language point to help other students of Spanish. “A Foot in Two Campos” has been responsible for a surprising boost in tourism to Colmenar – up from seven to seventeen!

FLIS

Family Life in Spain

We are a British family living and loving life in the beautiful village of Mijas Pueblo, in Malaga, Andalucía in the South of Spain.

We chose Mijas as our home as Andalucía has a special something that pulls you and doesn’t let you go. It has so much to offer to so many people. As the saying goes: “Andalucía … sólo hay una” (There is only one!).

Our website and blog has been, work in progress, for many years and is a culmination of:

Our desire to enhance our own Family Life in Spain, by discovering more about what Spain has to offer
Our wish to have a diary of our family life
Our thirst for discovering new places and travelling whenever possible
Our ability to give others a genuine account of Family Life in Spain
Our desire to share our experiences and knowledge with others considering relocating to Spain
A need to keep people informed of the changes in Spanish procedures, laws and regulations to help us all maximise our enjoyment of Family life in Spain
We started blogging in October 2010. The idea is that our site grows with our children. Our lives are focused around them and, thanks to them, we are learning more about the country we have chosen to make our home and slowly expanding our travels to more distant shores.

Garlic and Olive Oil

Garlic and Olive Oil is a blog that deals with Sandra Staas’s experiences living in Spain in the seventies and eighties. It’s a lighthearted account of what life was like in Cadiz, Talavera de la Reina, and Tarragona.

Capture

SandraInSpain.com The clue to what this blog is about is in the title – it’s all about Sandra’s life in Spain – the good, the bad, the ugly but most of all the quirky and the enjoyable. Sandra has been living in Algorfa on the Costa Blanca for 6 years now, and in that time, she’s learned a lot of stuff that could be useful to others, and had some great experiences that really should be shared. If you want Regurgitated Guide Book, this blog probably isn’t for you, but if you’re looking for a personal, no-nonsense take on what life in Spain is really like, then you’ll love it.

LaPalma

La Palma – The jewel of the Canary Islands I originally came to La Palma to work as a software engineer at the British telescopes in 1990. I fell in love with the island somewhere between the aeroplane and the arrivals hall. A year later, I fell in love with a local man who I met in the Isaac Newton Telescope (under the stars in the heart-shaped island). The observatory job lasted twelve years, and by the time I was made redundant, I was married with a son. So I retrained as a tour guide and turned my hobby of writing into a business. After twenty four years here, I still look at the scenery and think, “Wow. I don’t have to go home on Saturday. I live here!”

StarIsland
