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 - Real Madrid

My last post about the Manchester football teams was posted on this particular Blog in error - it was intended for my Rambler Blog - but never mind there was a slight connection with Spain - that being Barcelona who meet Manchester United at Wembley on May 28th.

On our recent visit to Guardamar I had the misfortune to watch some of the Real Madrid v Barcelona matches and what a sorry episode they were - some really talented players but the antics they got up to was disgraceful.

Diving, pushing, tantrums, screaming, shirt pulling and lots lots more ... what a display of how not to play football.

Let's hope that the Champions League final will be played in a better spirit !!!
