Spain and Britain two similar yet vastly different countries ?
As we all know every country is different from each other and exploring those differences can be part of the fun of living in a new country like Spain(this is part 2 of the difference and similarity's series of blogs on the UK and Spain)
One big difference is the day events are marked here in Spain to in the UK
Father's day (Dia Del Padre ) in Spain is on the 19th March where in the UK it is 16th June (in 2019 anyway )
Mother's day (Dia Del Madre ) is also marked on a different day in Spain it is 5th May and the UK it was Yesterday (in 2019 31/03)
And even April fool's day is different as while Spain has it's own version it is not held on the 1st April but instead 28th December and is called The Day of the Holy Innocents (Día de los Santos Inocentet ) Which relates to a biblical event
And as mentioned before the celebrate the main day of Christmas on 3 kings day which in 2020 is the 6th January (that is the red day as like in the UK on some occasions if a public holiday falls on a Sunday they move the Red day to Monday however unlike the UK if a Red day falls during the week the day does not move )
Things you think are different but only kind of are
A good example of this is the main emergency number in Spain as in many other European countries is 112 however will in the UK it is 999 so at first glance that is a difference however if you dial 112 in the UK you will get though to the emergency service hence been in this section.
Well there are plenty as I covered in the previous blog entry on this topic, so I will try to avoid re-mention any I have previously mentioned.
Well in Spain the Vauxhall is called the Opel (like in the rest of Europe ) we have the same models of it and various other car makes as well (I know this is very obvious but I thought I would start on an easy one as I covered quite a few in the Part 1 )
Many Spanish towns have on there streets Orange trees, Turre is no exception nad has many orange tree around the town
And the litte old church on the hill above Turre

landscape Here are a few pictures from our latest trip we have just done (next due out 23rd November (fully booked ) and again out on 12 December return leg is the 15th December europeanrelocationservices.weebly.com/upcomingroute.html
So the van left our base here in Turre Spain and headed into France to load taking us though a new route in the Pryness then on to the New Galloway area ( Loch Dee) to unload in some stunning Scottish landscape then onto Galsheils via the lovely A701 the scenic route to Edinburgh passing various waterfalls and a loch a quick load and onto England via A68 then to the ferry in Dover and via France back to Spain
One of the great things about routes like this is passing though great scenery, and for example in France many roundabouts on our route have some form of sculpture including an aircraft in tours, the pictured fishman catching a fish and just before you start climbing properly land gear on a round about
