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.

I think it is the first time I've been in Guardamar for Halloween

The reason I say this is that I do not remember seeing the young children dressed up as witches and demons trawling around the bars and restaurants with their parents in tow and receiving handfuls of small sweets from the bar staff. This may of course be a recent trend??

I suppose it would be difficult to access the apartment blocks and knock at each individual flat hence concentrating on the bars.

Unfortunately some of the older children /teenagers take delight in throwing eggs mainly at bars and Bank ATM machines.

I hope this craze does not get copied in the UK.....

Trick or treating licenced premises is way superior to door knocking. Parents can have a nice drink, patrons dare not say no for PR reasons (even grumpy Spanish ones), and you tend to get nicely wrapped after dinner mints and biscuits that travel well...
