Renewing Passports –                                                                                               (1)   I don’t know why people are having trouble renewing their passports. If in doubt go onto the British Consulates web site and all information is there.                  I have  renewed 2  in the past 2 years.  First go to the photo shop in the  Calle Andaluzcia , on the main road nearly next door to the Police Station in Torre del Mar. Ask for photos for Britain (they are a different size to those needed in Spain).  Then go on line  and fill in the online renewal form.  You can pay for the new passport online.  Take all necessay documents to any main Post Office and get  the equivalent of registering it.   The passport  office will send it back by courier.  Send  for renewal now and it will not take very long.  Remember if it has not completely run out they will give you the extra period.                  Gina                                                    (2)  Passport renewal – again.                                                                                               Strictly speaking John’s comment in Digame may have some merit – but we must also take into account the fact that the passport office couldn’t care less where you ‘live’, there is for example no requirement to notify change of address. If one is on extended vacation abroad away from ‘home’ and apply for a renewal – no point in having it sent to your home address!! Many ex-pats also have more than one house, some even three, in various countries- which one to send it to? The criteria here I think is a recognised address to which the new passport can be sent and received securely.     A.R.

Question – Writing Group ?

I understand there was a Writing Group that met regularly in Supersol Torre Del Mar. Now that store has closed the upper area where meetings were held the Group has moved elsewhere.

I was given a contact address <Hannah@streamwriting.com> but this is not recognised. If the Group is still active I would be interested in joining.

Before moving to Spain I wrote a regular column for ‘The Chichester Observer’ and several other publications. Out here most of my time has been devoted to painting but am now 23,000 words into a novel and a series of short stories.

If there is a Writing Group somewhere ‘Out there’ in the Velez Malaga (Where I live), Torre Del Mar area perhaps they would get in touch via


Many thanks,

Brian Reifer

Services Needed Scooter Insurance

I am bringing a UK registered 50cc scooter to Spain for up to 6 months on the back of our motor home but the cost of getting European cover for more than 90days, as part of my UK policy, is exorbitant.  Does anyone have any experience getting local Spanish scooter insurance for up to 6 months?
