Re: Pharmacy in Spain

use Google maps

In the maps search bar
type in your chosen Spanish town name
press enter
type farmacia in the search bar
You should see farmacias displayed on the map

(this works in Maps for hotels, restaurants etc)

However an American airline, will dispute this, and if so, you will need to escalate to the European commission for airli...

In Sept I have caught large Mackerel from Boat from Port Leucate, using feathers

Most ports will have some kinda of fishing boat trip, approx 30e from 0700 to 1130

These tend to stop mid Sept


I would be interested to see if there is wreck fishing , targeting bigger fish

Id have to agree fishing is poor here, recent tried Barcares beach, Cap Leucate head, rocky area south between Collouire and Argeles, Southern pier at PV

I used exactly same lures etc, as I do in the British Isles ,
Nothing caught in the PO areas above
Plenty in British Isles

Car hire, is about 300m from terminal and the track is not ideal with a buggy

one parent might be better staying with baby and luggage in terminal, which is small. from the terminal, you will see hire car pulling up

other parent picks up car, and drives to terminal to meet baby and parent
