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.

We returned from Spain yesterday after a 4 week stay and the first news we heard was that there had been two earthquakes and sadly much damage and loss of life in the Murcian city of Lorca.

When you are relaxing on the beach you tend to forget that Spain can be a centre of seismic activity.

Several years ago we stayed in Lorca for a night whilst touring around the south of Spain and found the place to be very pleasant - if my memory is correct it has the only church in Spain dedicated to Saint Patrick.

My sympathy goes to all affected.
