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.

Barcelona the Catalan football club failed to pay their players at the end of June it was revealed by club president Sandro Rosell.

A loan of about £125m has been agreed with the banks in order to pay wages.

This is the first news I've had that the club is in financial problems but they insist they are still in the transfer market for new players. Recently they sold Dmitro Chygrynski to Shakhtar Donetsk and Yaya Toure to Manchester City.

The club insist that they still generate income and that there will be no problems - the fans do not need to worry.
