Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Someone bashed into Maggie's car whilst it was parked down in Cartagena. The damage wasn't significant in that we didn't spot it for a couple of days but there were dings and dents in the front wing and bonnet. The bumper was hanging loose too.

We talked to the insurance company and the claim process was simple enough but in the end it worked out cheaper to get the bumps fixed at the local bodyshop in Pinoso than lose the 210€ excess. Indeed the prices were so low that we asked the bodyshop to fix a couple of other dings and scrapes in the car.

Somehow I can't ever imagine that it would be cheaper in the UK to fix a car yourself than let the insurance take care of it.
