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.

Spain's Tourist Trade

We are all aware from the media of the troubled events in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt.

Problems in the Middle East and North Africa will drive the tourists away from Egypt and Tunisia and assuming they are looking for sea, sun and sand many will head for the relative safety of Spain thus giving the tourist trade a well needed boost.

Looking ahead though the rise in aviation fuel prices which will follow any cut back in oil production will have a negative reaction in the tourist trade - number of tourists will fall.

All very much a two edged sword ...
