... Rio Serpis. A beautiful Easy or Easy/Moderate walk (depending on whether you choose to do the full 19kms or turn at the halfway point)
Mainly flat (only 160m ascents), 4.5hrs (full walk), good pathways throughout as we follow part of the disused railway line between Alcoy and Gandia (we walk from Lorcha to nr Villalonga). Stunning scenery as ...
... 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!
Ok yet again we have been slack in updating the blog but life is to be lived after all.
Not all of you may know that we moved to Edinburgh in July last year and what a fab place. And also found a great Bikram yoga place that both Mr and Mrs Mac enjoy ( yes he goes too) A castle and Harvey Nichs what more could we want ? A great Hogmany followed by ...
... a bit, but finally we were on our way.
It's always a happy moment when we turn the key in the lock and see our sun-filled apartment with that lovely view of the sea. Our home for the coming winter months!
It didn't take us long to get settled. And to our delight, shortly after our arrival Vincent, Alexia and Madlyn came by to give us a warm hello....and a few minutes later Marie appeared to make their welcome complete!
... 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 Prince Park Hotel Benidorm
After reading mostly uncomplementary comments about this hotel, we were relieved and pleasantly surprised at the standard of this 3 star hotel. The staff throughout the hotel were welcoming, helpful and courteous at all times.
Spent a week in this hotel on a Half board basis & cudnt fault the food @ all.......lots of choice catering 4 all nations........rooms were clean & spotless......yes I agree with some comments about walls being rather thin BUT its nothing that we cudnt live with....our room didnt ova look the road but we heard several road noises.....again nothing that we cudnt live with.....staff were not as helpfull as some hotels I have stayed in.....yes the hotel is up a hill but this walk back & 2 the hotel was very enjoyable......the Old Town is nearest & given the choice of staying in Old or New town then I know which I wud choose........Old town......all in all I was very satisfied with the hotel & wud return there again & recommend it 2 others.
Just returned from a week's holiday in Benidorm staying at the Prince Park Hotel, full board.
We had never been to Benidorm before so had no expectations other than a week in some warmer weather.
Had an absolute blast
I arrived at Prince Park Hotel with little expectation of having more than a couple of weeks rest because I was with my son and his girlfriend and in effect on my own. Instead I ended up having the best fun I've had in years. The activities put on in the hotel by the pool are great fun and the evening entertainment is great. All delivered by one guy with a larger than life personality. The food is superb and the rooms are great. I'm only just home and setting about booking for next year again. Maybe I'll even go for christmas!
Had fantastic xmas 2004. We where the two mad ones with wigs. I recomend u go there for christmas but take ur earplugs if u face the clinic cos it gets very noisy.
My two friends and I arrived at the hotel with much excitement and anticipation, hoping to find a nice, clean hotel that we could enjoy our week's holiday from.
A Hotel to far?
Hotel to far from beach and town up a steep road.
Hotel staff very rude and not at all helpfull. Food not bad hotel and rooms very clean. Nice resort if you like blackpool and drunks.
Very clean Hotel but.....
This hotel is very noisy day and night with a main road very near. Mainly a hotel for the Spanish, doors are slammed well into the night and conversation is at a high rate of decibels. You have to be fit as the dining room is down several flights of stairs and the lifts are tiny. There is no entertainment for children and the swimming pool is small with the noise of the road alarmingly close. The food was awful, accounting for the highest amount of complaints to the reps, hardly any choice and very bland and unimaginitive.All in all to be avoided, disabled visitors would find it very hard as this hotel is not centrally located and access within the hotel would be difficult for wheelchairs.
A place to return
A good place to stay, friendly people, good food, good bed, music en bar are OK. Hotelgeusts: Spanish, begian, french en dutch people in a very good mix. We were there for the fifth time. In october we will be back!!! Latest news: Internet is also possible
