Why, then, would you wait to register the domain name for that same product? Maybe you are afraid of someone spotting the registration and using it to spread rumors.

  • Costa del Sol’s Benalmádena – Beyond The Bar & The Beach

    The Spain Scoop
    7 Aug 2015 | 11:56 pm
    Sunny skies in Benalmádena By Emma Leiper When I was first invited to go on holiday to Spain with a group of  friends, my mind immediately conjured up images of snorting tequila shots, falling out of nightclubs at 6:00 a.m., and bouncing along the coast on an inflatable banana. All very Ibiza meets 18-30s-somethings club land. When I landed in Benalmádena I was therefore pleasantly surprised. It didn’t matter that we were (ahem) slightly out of the 18-30s holiday club range, nor was it even noticeable. Whilst there were certainly enough scantily clad young ladies who could fill a bikini…

    The Spain Scoop

    Passing through Barcelona? Pick up a copy of Eat Guides: Barcelona to dine like a local while in the city! $4.99 By Nancy Todd David, my son-in-law said, “Tarragona is my favorite city in Spain.”  Melissa, my daughter, and David, visited me from Portland, Oregon.  I have wonderful memories of spending the day with them in Tarragona. In this city, Romans frolicked in the Mediterranean Sea, fished, filled pottery vessels with olive oil and wine, and danced in the streets. Gladiator battles were fought in the coliseum and bad-ass bartering happened in the markets. Only one…
  • Ten Things I Love About Living in Spain

    The Spain Scoop
    11 Jul 2015 | 11:53 pm
    The author and her fiancé in Seville By Cat Gaa My Spain story isn’t very different than anyone else’s – on a short trip to the Iberian Peninsula in 2005, I fell in love with the country, its people, and the language. I made it a point to move back to Europe once I finished university, and the Spanish government hired me to teach English at a high school near Seville. Now, as I approach my seventh anniversary of living in Spain, it’s easy to reflect on just why I feel so at home here. My friends back in Chicago marvel at my expat life, but I pay bills, go to work, and wash my car…
  • Sales In Spain

    The Spain Scoop
    3 Jul 2015 | 11:01 pm
    Sales in Spain happen twice a year By Nancy Todd                       Comments by  The Blogdog Sales in Spain are weird. Regulated by the government,they are only permitted in January/February and July/August. Some small stores sneak in an obscure sale in the interim. Week by week, for anpit two months, goods are discounted three times. Lines are long. Customer service is non-existent and I have been in stores like Zara’s (a fab women’s clothing store) where there are 47 people in line and two cashiers. Buyers are undaunted. They scramble, wait in line…
  • Beautiful Beaches Near Barcelona: Sitges

    The Spain Scoop
    17 Jun 2015 | 11:36 pm
    Will you be spending time in Barcelona? Get a copy of Eat Guides: Barcelona and dine like a local in the city! $4.99 By Nancy Todd By the time it takes you to glob on suntan lotion and put on your shades, you can get from Barcelona to Sitges. Why Sitges for beaches? They are less crowded than Barcelona beaches and there are not as many vendors squawking “Beer?” “Massage?” The wide beaches are natural sand that has not been delivered in a truck.  Water is cleaner and warmer, and I am sure given the Grand Color Test, the water is bluer. We give Sitges a…
