Most people need to go to a chemist at some point during their stay in Spain.  Spanish chemists differ to those in the UK, they are qualified similar to your local GP and  this saves time by not having to go and find a doctor if it is a minor ailment. However, if you do need to see a doctor make sure that you have your EHIC - the blue health card with you when you go to the Centro de Salud (Health Centre) which you will find in every town.

If you fancy a change from Benidorm's busy Levante or Poniente beaches why not try Albir beach ... just a stones throw away - even the No 10 bus goes there from Benidorm. Albir beach is wedged between Benidorm and Altea and the beach is ap. 600 metres long... from here you can see as far as Calpe - the "Penon de Ifach" or Rock of Calpe - a reference to the Rock of Gibralter can be clearly seen.

Who watched the last series of ITV's "Benidorm" where two of the characters were arrested by the local police for "frolicing" on the beach ? Well I certainly laughed at the far fetched scene as I imagined most other viewers did ... Benidorm is certainly not Dubai!!!! How wrong can you be ...... then  following a post on twitter I decided to investigate the matter.

Easyjet's new pricing structure.

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Easyjet have launched to much fanfare a "new" concept to ticketing ..... the "Flexi Fare" !!!!! Now I remember some 20 years ago that British Airways use to have fully flexible fares so Im not too sure which smart ass thought it was a new idea. Back in those days you even use to get a FREE Daily Mail newspaper, sandwich, drinks - including alcoholic ones and you didn't have to pay extra for baggage!

If you walk all the way up to the point - where the Levante and Poniente beaches meet you get the most beautiful panoramic view of both bays.At the top is a very pretty white and blue tiled gazebo with seating which is a lovely backdrop for a photo ... and at the front is the "Love Padlock"monument.  This tiled gazebo area was used as a "restaurant" in the last episode of the ITV  Benidorm comedy series

Went for a walk along the Levante beach this morning and there, moored just off the shores was a sight to defy belief... a monsterous American Warship. The holidaymakers sunning themselves on the beach didn't know what to make of the scene - certainly an alternative holiday snap of them in swimwear with a Warship as the backdrop! The "CG64 USS Gettysburg" from the VI fleet has docked for a 4 day break.

Today and last Sunday were 1st Holy Communion weeks across Spain. Many people were rubbing their hands together at this annual windfall .... from retailers selling the "mini bridal gowns" or sailor outfits for the boys to restaurants and photographers!

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

With the influx of visitors to our shores at this time of the year this creates alot of extra traffic on the roads - especially in holiday hotspots such as Benidorm ..... a welcome site for the police! Whether you are hiring a car here or driving over from the UK there is one particular rule you MUST remember. NEVER EVER drive in flip flops, croc's or anything without a back - it is illegal and subject to a hefty fine.

If you are fed up of pie & chips and fancy a taste of real Spain then head to "Tapas Alley" in the Old Town. It is so named because the entire street is made up of tapas bars! The biggest and busiest is  "La Cava Aragonesa" which has a constant stream of visitors - both locals and tourists. The word "tapas" is derived from the Spanish verb taper - meaning "to cover".

News Snippets

  • Olive Oil +

    Prices of olive oil are expected to rocket as crops in Italy and Greece have been hit by bad weather. In some areas harvests are down by 60% and subsequently, wholesale prices have doubled from €3,000 to €6,000 a ton! But the saving grace may be Spain, where they had a bumper olive harvest...
  • That's crackers! +

    The Royal Mint are launching a gift range which will include 58 select items, one of which is a 'gold' six pack of Christmas crackers costing £5,000! But obviously for that price you are getting slightly more than a paper hat and plastic spinning top - you may be lucky to pull open a 1oz gold bar, 24 carat bullion coin or even an 18 carat gold diamond necklace!
  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
  • Powder ban +

    The Government are considering restricting air passengers on carrying powders in hand luggage under a new security clampdown. Baby powder, cosmetics and coffee may be limited to no more than 12 ounces. Australia, New Zealand and America have already introduced the restrictions.
