Travel. It's good for you !
Me, myself, I.
A big hello to all who land on my home page. I have always loved travelling, so it was natural that I worked for the railways for 26 years!
My first travel over seas was to the Isle of Man. Then I got the desire to visit another country propper, and thus, I looked through the holiday brochures and booked a holiday to Malgrat on the Costa Brava/Dorada in Spain. I enjoyed that so much that I went to the exact same hotel in the same resort one year later.
This really got me hooked on Spain, and as such, I have been back to Spain ever since although to different locations.
Benidorm, I thought was a bit over commercialised but fine for me THEN in my tender years.
A great gap in travel abroad then followed as the girlfriend at that time would not fly or sail, so many breaks within England and Wales ensued.
When I quit the railways and went to work at my other passion, that of running a pub, I got the oportunity to travel abroad again and went to Alicante. Very different to Benidorm although being just down the coast.
After this a fact finding tour to the Costa del Sol was organised with the idea of purchasing a bar there. There were four of us in the enterprise and one just hated Spain.
Things transpired that just two of us absolutely fell in love with Nerja, and we visited regularly as a break from our new chosen profession of house renovation, or property development on a small scale.
We have made many friends in Nerja and when the oportunity to move there AND own a bar came up, it was too good to miss. So there you are. This is now the present day and I am at the stage where the house in England is sold subject to contract and I shall be heading for Spain within a month.
Most pages are now complete with hyperlink shortcuts.
Many of my locations have current REAL TIME' local weather links, so that you can see what the weather of that place is RIGHT NOW !
My next planned travel is to: Nerja - December 2005 ONE WAY !
I am going to run my own bar!.
I specialise in useful, (hopefully), info. on Spain in general and here featuring Nerja (Link) on the Costa del Sol.
There's a travelogue to help you locate Nerja at base of my Nerja page.
Link: Where is Nerja and why should I go there ?
Shhhhhh. Don't tell everyone but there are around 900 places that you can get a drink in Nerja.
That's one hell of a pub crawl. See my Nerja nightlife (Link) section.
However that does include the hotels and cafes as well as the bars.
That's still not bad for a villiage though !
