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.

Virgen del Rosario - Guardamar

We had a few weeks holiday in Guardamar during a very warm and dry October. Not many photos taken but managed to take these of the local fiesta.


Sergi Darder

It is reported that both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the new 19 year old starlet Sergi Darder who currently plays for Malaga in La Liga.

Will they entice him to the English Premier League ??

Originally an Espanyol player he is thought to be worth about 11 million on the transfer market.

We await the next round of transfers with expectation.

Canal Nou / Nou 24

Unless there is a change of heart by those in authority we have seen the last of the Valencian TV channels Canal Nou and the news programme  Nou 24.

They were disbanded on November 5th as untenable - previously Radio Television Valenciana had reduced the workforce by 75% because of financial reasons however this labour adjustment was nullified by the National Court and RTVV was unable to continue.

Operating from Burjassot the channels broadcast in Spanish and Valencian.

No doubt they will be missed by the Valencian speaking community.
