A Trip to Valencia

The official name for an irrational fear of trains is Siderodromophobia. Not very catchy and a bit long. Here is my suggestion – Renfobia, an irrational fear and dislike of trains (especially those operated by Renfe, the Spanish train operator). In the last month I have become Renphobic. The cause of this? A recent trip to Valencia. The purpose of the trip was to accompany my sister Kim and my brother-in-law Chris who had tickets to watch the motorcycle Grand Prix.

The Grapevine Magazine

The Grapevine Magazine initially started as The Competa Magazine and was also distributed in Canillas de Albaida, Archez and Sayalonga . Due to increasing advertisers in different areas, the magazine naturally expanded to Lake Vinuela, Puente don manuel, Torre del mar, el Morche Torrox Costa and Torrox Pueblo.  And finally this year, we have started to distribute the magazine in Nerja. The Grapevine Magazine is successful due to its local content, information, articles written by locals, professional look and affordable advertising rates.
