A Stranger in Town ..
An Englishman in Spain - thoughts and impressions.
The story of our adventure in Spain
In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.
This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.
A Bloomberg report of the 9/12 suggests that some European CEO's believe that Spain will exit the euro and return to the peseta.
Already firms are making plans to move money to German banks or move their headquarters to northern Europe.
What are the consequences for the holiday maker or expat residing in Spain?
If Spain was to return to the peseta and then devalue it would make the country a cheaper place to visit ( assuming Sterling retains it's worth ), expats on a pension would receive a higher income but the value of our holiday homes and residences would reduce even further.
Holiday time is a good time to catch up with some reading .
Death in August by Marco Vichi was among the books bought from Amazon prior to our trip out to Spain.It is the first Inspector Bordelli book and the setting is around Florence a city we went to recently.
Must admit it was not a book I really liked - rather a slow storyline.
Perhaps I crave for constant action and excitement in the books I enjoy.
