SAN BANTONIO, Banned; Public Drinking. Banned; Late Night Drink. Banned; PRs & Parades. Not...

San Antonio Town Hall have added a raft of further measures designed to help shift the image and reputation of the municipality away from the boozed up Brits chips and tits that has been to some the ongoing blight and to others the lifeblood of Ibiza's second city.

Ibizans in Glass houses ….

In comparison to goats, led screens, and now mosques, I have seen nothing of outcry over this issue. Perhaps that is because we are all guilty, we all defraud the state when opportunity to do so presents itself, because that is ’the Spanish way’.

A Place Called Home? Accessing NHS services as a British Expat

Where do you call home? Even those of us committed as lifelong Ibizans may make a slip of the tongue when referring to the UK or Ireland as ‘home’. Perhaps that will never go away, but as much as we may consider our place of birth as that we call home, the reality is that we have turned our back on it and so perhaps understandably it has turned its back on us, certainly as far as health care is concerned.

Carnaval! What, Where & When 2016

It’s carnival time again! The main towns in Ibiza celebrate carnival (‘carnaval’ in Spanish or Mardi Gras as it’s also known in other parts of the world) with a parade.
