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.

Guardamar - Parking charges
Guardamar has joined the group of towns who now charge for parking - 850 parking spaces have been created near to the beaches and payment has been required since July 7th.
A new idea for this part of Spain but in the UK you will find very few towns that do not charge for parking. Car parking charges have been a way of life for many years and add a considerable amount to town hall coffers.
No doubt there will be a lot of complaints and arguing !!!!
