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.

April 22nd ... Did you know ?

On the 22nd April 1529 the Treaty of Saragossa divides the eastern hemisphere between Spain and Portugal along a line 17 degrees east of the Moluccas.

Pity they did not consult the English, French or Dutch.

In 1451 on this date Isabelle I of Castile was born.

And in 1898 the US Navy begins a blockade of Cuban ports in the Spanish -American war.
