I had a week away in Benidorm with my friend Corinne, the weather was fantastic and the whole place was buzzing. It was so good to see it like it was a few years ago, no empty buildings and people in all the bars and restaurants. They will have a super summer that will make up towards the loss over the last few years.
This new way of renting places to stay in from weekends to long holidays is proving very popular in Europe at the moment. It is so much cheaper than hotels and normally a better deal than B&B or guest houses. We had an apartment that had everything in it you would need in fact it is like home from home, one bedroom with twin beds plus a sofa bed in lounge, fully equipped kitchen and even a washing machine so you don’t have to take dirty clothes home. A nice balcony to enjoy a sangria and if you get too hot just pop the air conditioning on.
Opposite our apartment there was an Indian restaurant and kebab house so we popped over for a meal one night, I have to say it was one of the best I have tasted, the service was brilliant and everything was so clean.
Then we bring the sun home with us so my holiday mood continues.
