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.

World Cup - Who will win ?

Spain meet Holland on Sunday but who will win ? - we all seem to have our favourites ..

There are two unusual sources of prediction however -

From Germany we have Paul the psychic octopus from an aquarium in Oberhausen who thinks Spain will win. The octopus has correctly forecast the Germany results in the competition by picking a mussel from a choice of two boxes , each emblazoned with a team's flag.

From a Singapore fortune telling store a parakeet called Mani chooses cards printed with the countries' flags. Mani's prediction is Holland.

Who do you believe Mani or Paul ?
