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.

Champions League Final

Barcelona are thinking of flying to London early for their Champions League final on Saturday against Manchester United.

The eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland has resulted in a cloud of volcanic ash descending over the north of the country and flights in and out of Scotland and the north of England are being cancelled.

Last year disruption of flights in Europe resulted in Barcelona travelling to Inter Milan by coach for a semi final match - a game they lost.

At least 20,000 Barcelona fans are expected at Wembley - there will be many disappointed people if the UK airports shut down - it's a long way to London via train and sea.
