Blogs about Spain

Best Spain posts: drinking in Spain, civil war in Malaga, plus more…

I’ve decided to do a weekly post about the top 5 blogs and articles I read about Spain, and expat life. The main reason is to share the love, spread some loving, and love thy neighbours. So, here goes.

Drinking in Spain

Yes, there is plenty, but what are the rules? Check out this post on Spain Scoop by Kirstin Hollingsworth titled No Gin and Tonics before dinner.

Camino Plans

Doing the Camino de Santiago has always been a dream of mine. If you’re interested in following someone on a walk, then check out this latest blog by Maggie on Trepidatious Traveller about her plans for camino 2017.

Tortilla de Patatas

Best way to a man’s heart? With one of these bad boys. Check out this recipe on The Local about how to make the perfect tortilla de patatas (potato omelette).

Civil War in Malaga

If you’re interested in the civil war in Spain, then you need to be following Caroline Angus Baker who seems to be an expert on the subject. Her latest blog 80 years since the Malaga-Almeria Massacre, gives an indepth account of what happened.

Just how safe is rural Spain?

This is quite a moving, and sad, story on El Pais in English, about how a British woman, Illona Mitchel, was treated really badly, or rather her animals were, on the Day of King’s in Granada.

That’s all for this week. Happy reading.
