What is small talk? Small talk is like appetizer. It is the light start before a full meal of heavy discussion. It can create wonder by turning a challenging situation into a favorable one.
Timing. Set aside time for the family or group to be together when no one is stressed. Make a day event of it. If you’re shooting for a special occasion, like a Yoga Holidays Nicoya peninsula card, do it far enough ahead of the deadline in case of accidents.
Swimming is so relaxing and refreshing after being out in the sun but be careful with your dog. Your dog should not be allowed to drink out of the pool because it contains chlorine and other chemicals. If he is allowed in the pool, his coat should be rinsed well with tap water to get the pool water off it. And although there is a swimming stroke call “the dog paddle” not all dogs can swim. Watch your dog carefully to make sure he can swim. If he appears to be unable to swim or is tiring, remove him from the water and make sure he cannot get back in.
This is the biggest social networking crime of them all. How many times has it happened? You haven’t seen someone for 20 years; you vaguely recognize their name but not their face. They add you as a friend on Facebook and then after you accept them, you never hear from them again.
You might like to rent a place or you might prefer to buy somewhere. Renting usually involves the payment of a month’s rent as deposit and then the rent on top. You get your deposit back when you leave if there are no damages and if you give a month’s notice beforehand.
It’s one thing to add an old friend and then never speak to them. It’s another to add anyone whose name you kind of vaguely sort of recognize. It’s like that old man in the pub who slaps everyone on the back as if they were old pals, when in actual fact he has no friends, largely because of this habit.
As long as you are prepared to make a few little adjustments to your life and keep an open mind about other cultures you should have fun in Gran Canaria and find that it makes a good place to live. I should know – I spent nearly eleven years there!
