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.

The rain in Spain ..

When it rains in Spain it can certainly do it with great force - Spain is not only sun and hot dry weather ...

The rain causes a stream to flow down the road - the drainage system can not cope with the water ..

Water flows from the roofs not to a drain but in many cases straight on to the pavement complete with any debris from the down pipe !!

The street is deserted - suddenly it rains and there are no longer any tourists !!
