Hi from Spain
« on: October 20, 2016, 12:13 PM »
Hello all from Spain.

My name is Antonio. I've been reading this forum for near two years now and I've decided to register.

In the last three years I've bought a good number of Festool tools. It all began when I bought the TS 55 saw, and then I was "bitten by the green bug" as some of you usually say.

This forum is huge, and it is a very good source for Festool tool info, but not only that. I like the partnership shown here. People are always ready to help.

By the way, I'm not native english speaker nor writer, so please don't expect too much. I'll do my best. :)

Regards.

Hi Holmz.

Just in case you are refering to where in Spain, I live in Toledo and I work in Madrid.

Thank you all for your warm welcome.

Hi Holmz.

Thank you all for your warm welcome.

Yes "in" was the operator word, and not "is".
(I actually found Spain on a map once.)
And your streets are narrow in Toledo, better for a person or horse rather than a car.

There are some stunning old woodwork examples in Toledo and elsewhere.

Oh, I see that you found Spain once in the map and came here too  ;D Toledo is wonderful, but it is not "car friendly", not the old part of the city. Toledo has been there for 3000 years before first car arrived there. First inhabitants weren't too "forward thinkers".

It is a long travel from Australia to here. Only New Zealand is further from Spain. I hope I'll visit Australia someday.

It was a good trip.
A few days in Granda, then hired a Seat and went to Malaga (which could not leave quick enough), Ronda, the little white villages, Gibraltar, Sevilla, Toledo, Madrid.

Aboriginal culture is older, but they also did nor foresee automobiles. I am sure you could find something here to see. ;)
