The story of our adventure in Spain



In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

ABC Wednesday - A for Arcos


A is for Arcos de la Frontera in sunny Andalusia southern Spain. One of the many " White Villages " ( Pueblos Blancos ) visited so much by the hordes of tourists en-route from Ronda to Jerez or Seville.


Here away from the red hot midday sun is a quiet corner with some shade - a welcome relief.

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a red midday sun at the moment. It snows here in Norway... Spain is beautiful.

A sensible colour to paint buildings in a sunny area.
