Are you wondering about us, who built this website, how it came into being?
If you are, then you’ve come to the right place. For here, you’ll get to know a little about who you’re dealing with and why the site was built.
The Internet can be such a faceless place so I do hope that, after reading this, you’ll feel more confident about using the site.
Also, for British people in particular who dream of one day settling in Spain, I hope my story will make you realise that your dreams can certainly be realised …
My name is Linda. Although English, I’ve lived permanently on the Costa Blanca
in Spain for a good 25 years.
Most of that time I spent in the area’s main tourist resort of Benidorm. But, some
5 years or so ago, we moved just outside, to the quieter town of Alfaz del Pi.
Before living in Spain, I worked in Brussels as a bilingual secretary – French and Spanish.
But my years on the Costa Blanca have been mainly dedicated to the travel and property industries.
Along with that, I’ve also been busy raising my daughter – Vicky – who is now 23.
Although of English parents, Vicky was born and raised out here in Spain, attending local Spanish state schools and colleges … as a result, she now seems more Spanish than English!
Top Tour of Spain Was Born …
As my daughter became older, she didn’t need me so much and, for once, I had some spare time on my hands.
I decided the time had come to take up a new hobby – I was going to build myself a website!
At this time, I knew very little about the Internet and absolutely nothing at all about building websites … but the idea appealed, and so I decided to go for it.
During my years here, I’d amassed a tremendous amount of useful knowledge about Spain and the Spanish language – travel, culture, property, living here, bringing up children here …
Moreover, Spain and the Spanish people had been absolutely wonderful to me … and I felt a strong urge and need to spread the word about them, as a sort of homage.
The aim of the site was – and still is – to give as much helpful information and advice about every aspect of Spain to you as I can. And, of course, to introduce you to the beautiful, romantic Castilian Spanish language.
Top Tour of Spain’s Future …
We have tons of exciting things planned for the site’s future – more powerful information … unique and affordable products … plus, we’re in the throws of redesigning the site.
So, I guess I’ll just continue living in the place I love, writing about the subject I love, and expanding the business.
Life is good when you work at following your dreams …
