Always a great read

Great stories of life on an idyllic island about a small expat family and how it copes with life in a foreign country. Particularly enjoy the picture painted of living with locals and other ex pats, not usually seen on a 2 week holiday, and how the differences in culture and other adversities are overcome.. Keep it up..!

Thanks Vicki.....great article. Mallorca needs people in power that can see the full potential of this island. They need to realise that MAllorca is beautiful all the year round - not just a few weeks in the summer months!!

Thank you so much for this wonderful blog. As an expatriate living on the island of Mallorca, you are able to provide some much needed insight and the behind-the-scenes kind of action that only an expat who has been "localized" could do. I look forward to what insights your future posts will bring!

Moving house is one thing. Moving country, particularly to one where your language is not their language, is quite another. Vicki shares some great insights, funny stories and addresses some of the lesser known issues of living on an island that is known 'back home' as the place 18-25 year olds go to party.

Sarah

Vicki tells it like it is - no holds barred! And she has got in one regarding Delgado and the hunting trip - how can Mallorca be taken seriously when those in positions of 'power' allow themselves to be degraded - reminds me a bit of Putin - anyway keep up the clarity and truth Vicki and all power to your pen hand though its probably lap top finger these days. Good luck..x

The multi-talented Ms. Vicki McLeod's blog must be, without a shadow of a doubt, the most interesting & informative I've come across. She is a true professional in every sense of the word.

Love reading everthing that Vicky writes. I do think that she deserves to WIN the Expats in Spain Blog Award.

I always like to read so called small stories written like big stories! I like when the words flow, fast and funny and slow and considerate. I think that's why I like reading Vicki's articles and now her blog. She tells those family stories with care, there's an introduction, a set of problems and a big middle that gets better (or worse) and better until we have what is called an ending. Lot's of writers forget to....
