    Moving to Spain

    Oh Dear.............better not tell you where I originally come from then? Oooopsie You can move to Spain and immerse yourself in the Spanish lifestyle without even touching the "Northern UK" on the coastal areas It truly depends on what you want from your relocation...............learning the language IMO is a must whether it be coastal OR inland.......we are after all in a "host" country of your choice so why not? I live on the border of Granada/Malaga.............40 mins from the coast and 20 mins from the Sierra Nevada.........Sunbaking and Skiing all in one day :wink:

My Daughter worked in Australia for a year.................normal job/wage etc.........nothing above the norm 7 years later the UK Tax Office are demanding a re payment for money owed to them during the year she lived and worked in OZ We have sent them wage slips.....TFN......super annuation payments etc which proves she paid tax but to no avail She got the usual refund when she left OZ as a temporary resident less than 1000 AUD so I'm at a loss to understand why Any help/advice appreciated TIA

    What will you be doing on Australia Day?

    JUST to let you all know.............we had an amazing "Australia" Day party with all our Spanish Neighbours popping in and understanding the concept! The weather was brilliant...........22c in January was awesome although when the temp dropped at 4pm to 5c cooking a BBQ was a challenge lol They thought we were mad running around in thongs/singlets etc but a good time was had by all................feeling nostalgic tho...........missing OZ and feeling patriotic........

    Blackpool In Winter

    MY hometown..............I would Very good
  14. Wow.......wow and wow............ I am so disappointed to hear this..................shocking I am so sorry for your loss Have you pursued this and asked her why? WHEN you first enquired did they not send you a quote? I assume you bought the crate to get your doggie used to it first without locking in a date? I really am very sorry to hear this Absolutely shocking customer service considering I quote....from you on an earlier date Im sure they will be fine...I have every confidence in Narelle since meeting her You and me both I would chase this up..............she can't get away with treating people like this

    Another pet question

    What is the layover/turnaround time? I can assure you it is possible for the plane to refuel whilst the aircon is still at temp as in not exactly "on" but imagine the temp after 7plus hours flight? If turnaround is 50mins ....usual.... then there's plenty of time before it starts to creep................it is a separate entity to the rest of the aircraft............ However.............it depends on the layover time and how many "live cargo" are on the flight as to how the operation will proceed
