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.

Spanish election ..

Yesterday the local and regional elections were held amid rising unemployment and demonstrations about the poor economy.

With 91% of the vote counted the PSOE have had the worst results in three decades and the gap between them and the PP has increased to 10%.

The control of important cities Barcelona and Seville have been lost by the PSOE.

If these results are maintained next year then we may be heading for a PP government.
