Spanish Airport Info

If you are an expat like me or own a place in Spain and spend more time than you would like to at or between airports, then you ought to meet Gary Ingram. He runs a great site called Spanish Airport Guide and is more helpful than your average trolley dolly.

Gary has researched all the airlines, their destinations, the cheapest car hire and transfers at pretty much every airport in Spain. He currently runs a message board where he answers any questions and posts travel tips like how to save money on flights, for example.

In fact his message board has become so popular, he is looking at turning it into a forum, so he can answer more of your questions. Isn't he good?

Spanish property market review & forecast

For anyone considering buying (or selling) in Spain, read Mark Stucklin's great report on the current state of the Spanish property market.

Comparing stats and garnering opinions he points to a buyers market where vendors need to adjust their price expectations and where a clear oversupply of product will further the current price stagnation.

No huge crash though:

Based on the Spanish government’s figures, it looks like the Spanish
property market is on course for a soft landing, in which property prices will
rise in line with general inflation.

Rather than me misquote him, read the full report here. It is well worth it.

The gift that keeps on giving...

My best mate is getting married, and next week is his engagement party. Now I am the worst present buyer in the world. I once bought a (now) ex girlfriend a breadbin. You see.

So I am a crap present buyer, but fear not I think I have found the original gift idea:

Anyway it will be an interesting party.

What exactly is Web 2.0?

You may hear the term Web 2.0 bandied about by nerdy types like myself. What exactly do we mean by Web 2.0? Did I miss Web 1.0?

Rather than me waffle on watch this great video made by a professor of anthropology. It be good.
