... show up at the appointed time and enjoy the fellowship of some very nice people.
On the last two Wednesdays we tackled a couple of easy/moderate routes, one a good climb, the other a long (19kms) walk on a beautiful abandoned railway bed.
Here are the descriptions that Bill shares with the group in advance of the walks:
... bit of paperwork (typical Spanish type) but we were able to take ownership of the car this afternoon. We returned our rental to the airport and took a taxi to the dealership.
It is now safely parked in our underground garage. Lars is busy thinking of a name for our wheels. I'm just excited to contemplate our next road trip. We may be headed for the south of France soon...Annelie and Jan, be warned!
... walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner. It was after 20:00 but true to Spanish habits we were the first diners through the door. It has been a long day for us and we were happy to have a simple dinner before returning home.
True to form the next morning we had a magnificent sunrise. We love waking to our seaside view.
In the next few days we will get settled, enjoy some walking and reconnecting with friends and neighbors. We're happy in ...
... was only the arrival of Jenny's Christmas card to their UK address with an Alicante postmark that triggered the question.
It was quite amazing sitting in a cafe in nearby Hondon where four of us had worked for Panel Systems (me, Mark, Jenny and David) and Steve had worked for Sheffied Insulations, from whom David had bought the business! Of course reminiscing about all the employees who had worked for the company through the ...
... pretty little town where Mike discovered that he would like to die buried in a pile of French food...and French pastries...and French wine. Weirdly although I was on a quest to eat my way through Europe I am not a fan of French food...I know right? What a weirdo. From there we were off to Miramas to start our first workstay in France. So far it has been fun but more on that in the next instalment haha. Later Spain! ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Lucentum Alicante
Very Good Hotel
We stayed 3 nights at this great hotel. Reasonably large modern room with huge bed and well fitted bathroom. Well located just yards from the bars, restaurants and nightlife of Alicante. We paid only 60 Euros per night without breakfast which was good value. Happy to recommend this good quality 4 star hotel.
My husband and myself booked a cheap flight to Alicante from our local airport and after reading reviews decided on staying at the Hesperia Lucentum. The hotel reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were given a high floor room, as we had requested on booking, and were not disappointed. The room was large with a comfortable bed and had a beautifully designed bathroom with a good powerful shower. The weather in Alicante that weekend was extremely pleasant (19 - 21 degrees) ,however, this did mean that the room was quite warm because the air condition was not working (It is winter in Alicante too even if the weather decided it wasn't) and we needed to open the window when we were in the room, which of course then resulted in us hearing quite a lot of noise from outside the hotel. The only other fault was that only coffee was kept hot and available at breakfast. They did have a pot of water on a heater for making tea but unfortnately decided not to turn it on for the 3 days we were there and they also decided no one would want the bread toaster on either. So my advice is if you like a cup of tea in the morning take a travel kettle. All in all this hotel was a good choice though and I would stay there again
Stayed here last week of december with my family of 8. The location is excellent, about a 10-15 minute walk to the esplanade. Of course, in the Summer you might want to be closer to the beach, but it really is a nice walk through town, and you get to see all the restaurants and businesses,etc. It is across the street from the central market. We walked everywhere from this location easily. There is convenient parking in the underground public garage.
This is a smart upmarket business hotel. And heavily caters for such clientele.
Just returned yesterday from a quick one night trip to Alicante.
Enjoyed the Hesperia Lucentum
This was a really pleasant hotel... modern, clean and stylish. The breakfast was great and the location was good. It's bit farther away from the beach than many of the other Alicante hotels (maybe 10-15 min), but the walk is enjoyable... right through town. At first I was disappointed not to be on the beach, but after a couple days appreciated this more central location. Overall, an excellent deal.
Well situated, modern and affordable. We stayed for 5 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were spacious. The bathrooms were well fitted out with nice thick cut dark slate vanity unit tops, limestone wall tiles and nice dark porcelain tiled floors.
Super Hotel im Zentrum
Super Hotel im Zentrum von Alicante. Zu Fuss sind alle interessanten Plätze der Stadt in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Sehr schöne, neue Ausstattung der Zimmer, sehr auber, drahtloses Internet gratis im ganzen Hotel, freundliches Personal. Top!
Great location, exceptionally good breakfast
Hesperia lucentum is one of the latest additions to Alicante's top-end hotel scene, and not a bad choice for a long weekend break.
Location is brilliant, everything is within walking distance; museums, bars and restaurants, shopping streets, and even the beach and the lovely harbour area.
The hotel is very design oriented, sometimes at the expense of practicality but also very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is incredible and well worth the money !!!
The common areas (coffee bar, lounge) were a bit lifeless when we visited and there is no restaurant or room service as such. Luckily there's plenty of places around the corner for eating and drinking!
All and all a great base for exploring Alicante and the surrounding areas.
