Must have and must know when traveling to Spain

Whether you are going on a holiday, on a business, or simply meeting families to Spain, everyone has their very own idea of what to do and what to bring. However, these things I have listed below are the things you should not miss on your check-list.

• Passports and Visas
• Credit cards
• ID’s
• Medications
• Airline tickets, train tickets, or boat tickets
• Hotel documentation
• Cameras & mobile phones
• Foreign currency or Travelers cheques
• Contact number of your health insurance
• Luggage’s – Which includes gears and weather appropriate clothing.
• Travel itinerary
• Spanish translation book (if you do not speak Spanish)
• And check out the weather forecast.

Now as you have noticed I had included the weather forecast, it is due to the reason that you can actually minimize your luggage if you know what the weather would be, by packing only what is needed! And the best way to get the proper forecast of Spain’s weather is to check this spanish weather website. I would highly recommend this websites mainly because my sister lives in Barcelona and when I asked her about this website, she said it is quite accurate! The thing I like about this is that unlike the some other weather websites, this is made specifically for Spain! You can check all the popular tourist destinations with some interesting weather information about the area, the current weather conditions of Spain’s cities and towns, up to 14 days ahead of time. Very useful indeed!

Since it is summertime, I have here some tips on what to bring on hot summer days in Spain:

• Light cotton- shirt, T-shirts or dresses
• Shorts and Jeans
• Cotton underwear
• Open toed shoes
• Sandals and flip-flops
• Towel and face towels
• And swimwear’s to enjoy the lovely pools and beaches of Spain.

Have fun!

Barbecue fire safety guide

Summertime is the best time to spend a relaxing time with family and friends, even at home. So, when the sun is shining, get your barbecue out in the garden and have fun! But before anything else make sure you know these fire safety guides.

• Keep a bucket of water, sand or a garden hose nearby for emergencies.
• Never use the barbecue indoors.
• Always set your barbecue up a good distance away from sheds, fences, trees, and shrubs, so they don’t catch fire.
• Never leave a barbecue unattended.
• Only use enough charcoal to cover the base of the barbecue. Normally around 5cm deep and don’t be tempted to fill it any higher.
• Keep children pets, garden furniture and toys away from cooking area.
• After cooking, make sure the barbecue has cooled before you move it.
• When you are cooking with a gas barbecue, make sure you turned the gas supply off first, then the barbecue control. This will then stop any gas from leaking.
• Change barbecue gas cylinder outdoors or in a well -ventilated area.
• Never store gas cylinder under indoor stairs as they could explode and blocked your escape during a house fire, instead store gas cylinder outside, away from sunlight and frost o a level, well drained surface.
