Roberto,

Welcome from Minneapolis Minnesota USA. If you can figure it out,
post a picture of your scooter. We love pictures. Love Spain. Had
the good fortune to visit several times. Routinely on the East Coast.

Mi Espanol es muy spanglish. El problema es que los espaƱoles donde vivo quieren aprender ingles y prefieren hablar ingles.

Roberto1889,

I know that Spain was a popular destination for Brits over the
years on holiday. Reasonably priced flights.

So, Roberto, did you visit and just didn't go home? I met a
guy who was the captain of the scuba diving tourist boat in
Hawaii. He visited on vacation and simply never went home
to Ohio.

Hello from Reno Nevada Roberto. It looks nice there I am envious!

I have a very good friend whose grandfather was from Spain. Even though my friend was born and raised in United States and has never been to Spain he has Spanish citizenship because his Grandfather was exiled by Franco. Kind of an interesting story.

Here is a link to the article about citizenship for descendants of exiles...

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/oct/27/spains-new-citizenship-law-for-franco-exiles-offers-hope-in-latin-america

And here is a link to my friends Grandfather on Wikipedia. I never got to meet Jose but I knew his wife and my friends grandmother Alice very well. Even though she was much older than I she was one of my favorite people. I did the electrical wiring for her artist workshop in Santa Barbara when I was in my early twenties. Alice was a world traveler in the days when that meant getting on a boat and she took surfing lessons in Hawaii from Duke Kahanamoku's little brother. I have seen the picture of her standing next to him after a lesson.

We moved to the Alpujarras to a little village of about 50 people, talk about in at the deep end for a lifestyle change. We still worked online when there was only SKYPE. We sold moved round southern spain, bought and sold properties and traded up to where we are now over the Med. A long hard roller coaster journey but if it was easy .................... whats the point.

welcome..& Hola..
Southern Spain means near Seville or Malaga... or around there I am guessing.
Someday hope to visit that part of the world...

I live in the Costa Tropical which is about 45 minutes east of Malaga. If you get the chance please vist Seville or Malaga. Seville is beautiful very relaxed and amazing architecture and yet all different cities on one. Malaga is very modern and a buzzing city yet still feels old world. Our favourite is Granada at times it feels you have stepped back in time or in Morocco which influences its style and culture. All of them take another life at night when the Spanish venture out, all great memories.
