Re: smart tv's

I have the Amazon Fire Stick which is the same tech as the Fire TV Box. It did say that it will only work in certain countries - UK and Holland, but not elsewhere, so I presume the same will be true of the Fire Box. I'm not sure how it knows which country it is being operated in as the signal is via...

Re: Oh Dear........

Perhaps someone local might want to point the local police (anonymously) to this guy.

Re: Son Bou or Cala Galdana ?.......

Since 2000 we started taking our two youngsters to Jardin de Menorca and they (and so we) thoroughly enjoyed the place. The food is acceptable, the on-site supermarket sells everything you might possibly need at reasonable prices and the enclosed grounds are safe and very quiet even at the peak holi...

Walking on farmland

Is there such a thing as a 'right to roam' on Menorca ? We have been sent particulars of a property where the agent states that to the rear of the house there is land for walking dogs/cycling........ from what I can see on Google Earth this is private land, so my question is - whether we can walk fr...

Re: Ship possessions or buy when we arrive

Many thanks for the info Sue. It just seems a ridiculous amount of money to first ship, then store for an indefinite period only to find, perhaps, that the UK style doesn't suit the home we buy.

Starting afresh seems to be the way to go, building a new home together with a new life seems like fun.

Ship possessions or buy when we arrive

Greetings everyone. We will be moving permanently to Menorca in September 2017 and I would be interested to hear people's thoughts on whether it makes economic sense (or not) to sell our furniture and other goods here in the UK and save on shipping and storage. We can bring over personal possessions...

Re: Selling the house and kids and moving to Menorca

Many thanks for all of the helpful replies. The winter weather doesn't concern us in the slightest - we live on the Atlantic coast of Devon and the people walk at 45 degrees during the autumn and winter - never mind the trees. Even if the winters are windy to some - the quick turnaround to warm suns...
