We don't shop in German supermarkets unless we have too, we don't like what we are buying being thrown at us or being ignored at the check out.

Mercadona is much better.

In theory yes, we will see what happen in a couple of weeks time. We have only booked 90 days, so far but might extend if they don't stamp my passport.

If you stay more than 90 days in a row you are supposed to register with the police, so we split our trip at Christmas to avoid that. And obviously stay less than 180 in a year to avoid paying Spanish tax.

But we were never in Schengen and neither is Ireland, so if you are in the EU you don't need to be in Schengen for free movement.

Iíve now seen that Paul Ruane has posted some photos of the completed development on Facebook, and as you rightly say Nophead, the electricity will be turned on tomorrow.

Well done, that's interesting, so it seems you're ok then to stay for as long as you want now!

It has been open a while! Good size store with plenty of room between the aisles.
But still prefer Lidl, maybe because we are used to it.

Schengen is a joke anyway, it was brought in for free passage within the EU countries that signed up to join another stupid law.

That was until the migrants started turning up all over Europe, the Greek's put them on an Island, the Hungarians erected a barb wired fence & I see today the French have stopped an Italian ship docking because they have migrants on board.

I think the British Government need to learn & act like our EU neighbour's or better still do what they do & did down under, they don't have a migrant problem anymore.

My wife has her Irish passport now, so I shouldn't be restricted to 90 days when I travel with her. We tried to get clarification from the Spanish embassy in Manchester as to how it actually works at airports but they are useless. They said I had to stick to 90 in 180 since brexit but I found an official EU document that is guidance for border guards that states explicitly that I don't. We have printed the front cover and relevant pages in both English and Spanish to take with us.

Yes Spain recently announced their own Digital Nomad visas, so I don't see why they can't issue ones for snowbirds or perhaps property owners. They could charge a moderate fee but as long as it didn't involve jumping through all the hoops a residency visa requires it would be OK.
