Should have come to Greece

Highway robbers are hitting tourists in Spain. Crime gangs target hire cars and cars with British number plates

In March 2013 the British Government issued a warning to everyone visiting Spain.

Thieves distract their victims with faked accidents or supposed vehicle problems. The gang hotspot is the AP7 motorway heading to the Alicante region in southern Spain. British consulates reported 140 robberies last year on the AP7 motorway alone.

Roadside robberies reported to the Barcelona consulate are currently running at almost 1 per day!  Authorities believe that many thefts remain unreported by embarrassed victims.

The best way to avoid these incidents is HOLIDAY IN GREECE

About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through Lesvos Calendars. Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
