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.

Real Madrid progress ..

More success in the Champions League - last night saw Real Madrid beat Roma 2-0 and progress to the next round.

With goals from C Ronaldo and J Rodriguez in the 64th and 68th minutes.

The aggregate score was 4-0 over two games

The next round is likely to be much harder when it is assumed that they will meet a far stronger team than Roma.

Valencia win !!!

At last Valencia have won in La Liga under their new manager the ex Manchester United player Gary Neville.

After 10 La Liga games this is the first win for Gary.

A 2-1 win against struggling Espanyol with goals from ex Manchester City player Negredo and on loan from Real Madrid winger Cheryshev.

The team and Gary have a lot more work to do to improve on their position in La Liga which is 11th.

These flowers added some extra colour to the balcony last year - now a forgotten memory. Faded and gone...
