Re: Masked up!

Ouf! :D Bearing in mind that masks aren't supposed to protect you from catching the virus, only from spitting on people, maybe coffee filters would be better than nowt! :D

Re: Masked up!

My husband has just been told that chemists have been told to only supply to health pros, who use an average of 18 per day. Bonne chance quand meme! :-)

Re: Banned from the beach

I think that there were quite a few people taking to the beaches, particularly with this lovely weather, in groups, families, kids etc so it was decided that the only way to stop this was to ban everyone.

Re: Interesting Restaurants in the Vallespir and other PO?

Couldn’t agree more. Both excellent in different ways. Have you also tried the Salamander in Sorède? Another superb restaurant experience.

Re: Hygene - particularly important now!

I took someone for an appointment at Montpellier CHU last week. Sitting in the corridor with loads of others waiting to see the consultant ( the waiting room was full) I was shocked to see there was no hand wash anywhere and the one loo for the whole corridor was decidedly grubby.

Re: Where to get a flat white coffee?

More from Facebook

I can confirm Coffee Mood in central Perpignan does excellent and genuine flat whites. L'Albera cafe at Gran Jonquera shopping mall also makes flat whites but they called it a coffee with milk!

Re: Where to get a flat white coffee?

From Facebook

We're coffee afficionados. The best places for a Flat White in the P-O are Josephine's in Thuir, Cafetiere Catalane at the Auchan Mall, Marabouthe in Perpignan and I have heard that there is an Aussie café in Collioure maybe it is OMVIO.

Re: Hotel in Barcelona

We stayed here last just out of the centre, about 5 mins away by tube which is just next door. Cost us 65 euros inc breakfast. Obviously, prices change depending when but we found this really good. https://www.booking.com/hotel/es/casa-vaganto.en-gb.html?aid=345724;label=banner-728x90-minimal;sid=c1...

Re: French or Spanish Pyrenees?

Welcome to the forum Phil.
French side any time for me.....but I suppose it depends on lots of things; which language you speak fast, what your interests are.....
Bon courage with whatever you choose...or maybe I should say ‘animo’. It’s a great life on either side of the border!

Re: Alarming drop in Passenger numbers for Perpi airport

Dimitri has moved onwards and upwards Deb and don't know if he follows the forum any more as he is now based in Toulouse. You can tag him on the Facebook group but as far as I know, he's no longer involved with Perpignan airport - our loss as he really did try and get things moving there.
