I spend more time reading than I do writing, and all of these blogs below are where I look to for a laugh, some interesting reading and inspiration for my own topics! Do investigate…
News & Expat-serving Blogs
The Olive Press – Constant source of Spanish news in English. They work bloody hard here and they keep stories short and to the point. And I blog for them!
The Spain Scoop – My primary resource for within-Spain travel planning. Great site managed and incredibly well run by Nancy and Regina.
Expats Blog – An expat blog created by expats for expats. It doesn’t get any more expat than this. I expat you’re getting tired of me using the word ‘expat’. I’ll stop then.
Tenerife Forum – A great resource for anyone concerned with or interested in the ongoings and hidden gems of Tenerife and the other Canary islands. The forum section itself provides an excellent means of contacting residents of the island and sharing relevant knowledge and experiences.
