    Here’s my website – a link from Spain Scoop would be good.

  2. John Bentley says:

    A new planet has been discovered! Read all about it!

  3. Not sure if the #15M and Indignado movement would be of interest to readers here, but my blog is covering it in English. Be forewarned I have a tendency to use the F word.

  4. admin says:

    Great. I did look at your blog but didn’t notice any way to ‘follow’. Sounds interesting, the 15 grapes for M15. I also wrote something on M15 for, you can see it here:

  5. Great write up on the Barcelona Occupiers! I take back my snide comment from a few days back, you guys are really gonna tell the whole story — how refreshing in Spain! I have tweeted it to my Occupy friends back Stateside, I am sure it will get passed around.

    To follow my blog simply click the “follow” option in the top left corner (next to the search bar).

    P.S. Here in Madrid, the Okupa protesters shout, “Que pasa, que pasa, que no tenemos casa!” What does the chant sound like in Catalan?

  6. Here’s my blog, all about Gran Canaria and the Canary Islands.

    I also recommend for people who are thinking about living in the Canaries

  7. admin says:

    Thanks Alex!

  8. Anna says:

    Definitely and latasha’s “then I met javea and fell in love” . They’re both fulbright scholar teachers and show a lovely side that travelers don’t get to see.

  9. Awww hey thanks! I gotta add you to mine!

  10. If you check out my website: as well as articles on saving money we include info on cool Spanish websites with innovative products or services. (well, we think they’re cool anyway…)

  11. For holiday home owners in Spain, there’s also “El Blog”. It’s candid, it has a picture of Zorro and on occasion it serves up wise words on the market:

  12. Consider us? We’re a small family-run bar in Granada, Spain. Built from scratch by an English expat known as “Totes”. You can read about our story and see our activities on our blog. Technically we’re a bar but really we’re a community. We’d love for you to check us out. Thanks!

  13. admin says:

    Thanks for your info.

  14. Thanks for considering me! I hope you will think of my site when you need tips on what and where to eat in Spain.

  16. Cat says:

    You forgot your dear old media Sevillana! Can Sunshine and Siesytas get a little love, porfi?

  17. admin says:

    Yes! Sorry!

  18. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

  19. Chris says:

    I cover Spain quite a lot in my posts having lived in both Madrid (uni) and Valencia (work). I’d be grateful if you could add

    My latest post is about Belchite, actually


  20. Jack says:

    Great idea. Here’s our blog/website

    Forget just about everything you normally read about Tenerife, it’s usually the same old, same old.

    This is the Real Tenerife.
