18th July 2014

1PIt’s arrived!!! The season of “no parking spaces” and an influx of children enjoying our beautiful beaches.

Don’t forget there are only two weeks left before most of the government offices close for the whole of August. Any legal paper work that is urgent you are advised to get to the lawyers before then. Also, although it makes no sense, there is also reduced emergency cover at local towns. August is the time the Spanish take their holidays away from the island.

The tourists arrive, the locals disappear!!

Fuerteventura logic?
