Client Testimonials

"We used Paul to help us organise a wedding in Ronda for my English daughter and Scottish son-in-law. It was a very tricky matter, because it is not normal for foreigners to marry in the town. Nevertheless, we persevered and Paul did all the interpreting, talking to officials and making phone calls on our behalf. Needless to say, the wedding went perfectly, with a large part of the thanks going to Paul."

Ashes to ashes ... PDF
Wednesday, 29 December 2010 00:00

Well, our boys down under did it! Contrary to the view of the bookies, England have retained the Ashes today.

Yes, despite their crushing defeat in Perth in the 3rd Test just before Christmas, England’s cricketers have fought back magnificently to thrash Australia by an innings and 157 runs in the 4th Test in Melbourne. After the drawn 1st Test in Brisbane and England's stunning victory in Adelaide two weeks ago, they are now 2-1 up in the five-Test series. Even if Australia win the final match in Sydney, a drawn series means that England, as holders, retain the Ashes.

Personally, I think the lads should go all out for a win in Sydney, just to rub the Ozzies’ noses in it, like they have done to us for over two decades. Who said cricket was a gentleman’s game?
