Flossy run from Benidorm

User Rating: 4 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

When I first heard the term Flossy I had absolutely no idea what it was.... perhaps you are clueless too? Flossy is the brand name of the biggest Mediterranean footwear craze of the decade. Flossy shoes are basically canvas espadrilles and come in a variety of styles and most importantly colours - to me they look a bit like old fashioned house slippers or deck shoes.

If you've ever headed inland from Benidorm, past La Nucia you may have wondered what the silver white meshes are that adorn the mountain-sides.

Many of you may have wondered what the semi built concrete skeleton in the middle of the Avd Europa is.....well obviously a building site - it doesn't take a genius to work that one out with SIX cranes sitting idly by! The "project", which actually started back in 2007 is for a colossal 35,000 sq mt Cultural & Conference Centre - which had an initial budget of 40 million euros.

In the UK political correctness has gone mad and thanks to all the do-gooders there is NO justice system.  A drink driving footballer, who killed two young boys was let out of prison to attend his son's birthday party - he was sentenced to just over seven years and is due to be released this summer after serving just half of his sentence. Yet a looter that started a fire during the London riots was jailed for 11 years! Today's Mail

Benidorm Palace is usually on most visitors "to do" list - even locals go on a regular basis, especially when they have visitors.

Did you know that as a resident Spanish pensioner in Spain you are eligible for cheap holidays throughout the country. The Spanish government heavily subsidises over one million pensioners to go on holiday every year. The programme is called IMERSO (Institute for Senior Social Services) .... Can you imagine the UK government doing that - they barely pay enough pension to cover the basics!

Since the smoking ban was introduced in Spain on 2nd January 2011, many bar owners have complained about the detrimental impact on takings. The anti-smoking laws are one of the strictest in Europe and the introduction was met with mixed reviews. The rules were first introduced in 2006, which outlawed smoking in the workplace but allowed bar and restaurant owners to choose whether or not to allow it.
