I am planning a first trip to Grenada Spain in May, and wonder about recommendations for off- the- beaten- track restaurants, unique cafes, jazz bars etc. Also, any info on fiber and wool shops would be most helpful. Feel free to mention anything unique or worthwhile. Thank you.

About nine years ago I spent a couple of days in Tossa de Mar on Spain's Costa Brava. One night we had a fantastic buttery-garlicky fish dish which my memory (and Google) tells me was called cimi tomba. Does anyone know of the recipe for this masterpiece of Catalan cuisine?

I'm a qualified British TEFL teacher with about 2 years experience living in the UK. I want to teach in Spain and have applied for a few jobs online in the last month but heard nothing. I am thinking of just moving to Madrid to find work, is that the only realistic way of getting a job quickly (I don't have a lot of cash) or should I hold on and try and secure a job before I leave?

Are you great at reading horrible handwriting? Your expertise is needed!
Last year, I met one the most kind men I had ever come across while traveling through Europe. Unfortunately he gave me his address while rushing for a train and the handwriting of the street is pretty impossible for me to read.
Can you decipher it?
And if you happen to live in either Alicante, Spain or Rabat, Morocco, perhaps you know him? His name is Idrissi Hafid.

I plan to drive from Venice, Italy to Valenica, Spain in April or May 2009 using the following route.
I will stay for a few days or weeks in little spots along the way. I should have about six weeks in total. I mostly want to see a little of Spain and Italy, the French Riviera, Montpellier, Marseilles and finish at Valencia. Apart from that anything else I should try to see? Any parts of the chosen route I should avoid? What's driving like along that route? Any rental car companies which will let me pick up in Italy and drop off in Spain?

How does a 40ish year old male with enough money find his way around Europe without foreign language skills? Is it possible to hire guides to travel with, or at least to show them around on a city-by-city basis for this sort of thing? I'm thinking specifically France, Spain, Italy. Willing to use University students or some other creative possibility.

Spain Camera Hire : Attending a best friends wedding in Majorca in September, and have been asked to be the official photograper. Instead of dragging my gear across the pond from Australia, wondering if anyone knows somewhere in Spain (specifically Barcelona or Majorca) where I can hire the gear I'd need.

I've just finished business school and have landed myself an internship at a very respectable multinational company in Barcelona, Spain. The internship is great, the salary dreadful. So, I'm now in a position where I can barely afford to live and need to find something else to suppliment my income.
Can someone give me an idea of what formalities I need to address in order to sell food in the streets of Barcelona? [more inside]

Some friends and I are planning to spend a few days in Cadiz for Carnival. All the hostels and hotels are booked (and we're students so our budget is fairly tight to begin with), so we figured we'd just pack light and sleep on the beach. Any advice on how to do this comfortably, and without getting our stuff stolen while we're asleep? Should we plan on stowing our stuff in lockers at the train station? Should we bring costumes with us or get them there? Any scams, sketchy areas, etc. that we should watch out for? Any and all advice is welcome, we don't really know what to expect!

We are considering a one week trip to northern Spain including at least 2 days hiking and photographing in the Picos de Europa region. One of us is an expert hiker and the other is a beginner. However, the concern is about the weather. The plan is to go late April/early May however, we do not fancy hiking in the rain. Is this timeframe a bad idea?
