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.

Tomorrow November 20th is a general election in Spain.

When I was in Spain the electioneering had already started -low key compared to the UK- with debates on television, hoardings being erected and the noisy vans/cars roaming the streets with loudspeakers.

The good money is on the PP to win and triumph over the PSOE who are blamed for the economic mess and high unemployment.

I think the Spanish people will not be too happy if when elected the PP impose severe austerity and fiscal cutbacks. We holiday home owners will just have to wait and see if there are any new taxes imposed on us.

More news to follow.
