The Feminine Angle

Love a Child

I have previously mentioned the social and business-networking group called WomenWorks. It is a group of like-minded women who meet the first Friday of each month to connect, support and inspire one another.

Passion for Paediatrics

Anyone living here with children should be introduced to Alice Lauboeck. She is one of three paediatricians at the Almuñécar Health Centre (Centro de Salud). I was totally impressed with the passion she has for her profession, not to mention how sweet and utterly delightful she is.

The Gift of Giving

I am sitting in Vancouver and it’s snowing! Watching the snowflakes fall reminds me that Christmas is drawing near and that it is also the time for giving – usually in the form of presents.

Classifieds for Cancer

The AECC (Spanish Association against Cancer/Asociación Española Contra el Cancer) and The Seaside Gazette have teamed up to raise funds in the name of cancer. This project is in the form of the Classifieds ads page, which is now entitled Classifieds for Cancer. Starting this month, the Seaside Gazette is donating this page to the…

Woman with a Vision

Nicky Euesden is a woman with a dream and a vision. She came to Almuñécar nine years ago with her family because her hubby had a 6-month film contract with Sky 1. They decided this was the ideal place to bring up their kids and within three months, Nicky had sold their home in the UK – by fax!

NLP Life Skills

A very exciting art project called ArteCalle has been developing over the past couple of months in La Herradura.

Look It’s Music

New members are still welcome to join the Almuñécar Women’s Group every Monday from 13:30 till 14:30 at the Look It’s Music Academy in Almuñécar. It is a 1-hour harmony singing session with Russell Nash.

Brave New Beginning

Who is Susie MacLean? Well, in my opinion, she is a walking encyclopedia about the history and culture of Spain. Her Scottish last name is misleading, as she is actually from Denmark. One day, 10 years ago, she made a spontaneous decision to board a plane heading for Spain. It was an impulsive decision that would change the course of her life.

Kürbis & Kaviar

There is a little hidden gem located opposite the church in La Herradura. It is called Kürbis & Kaviar (kürbis is the German word for pumpkin). It is a combined art gallery and studio owned and run by two very creative and talented ladies, Andrea Auer and Rosario González.
