El Medano – Another place where we have left a piece of our hearts, you can not help but fall in love with this laid back, surf town, with it’s abundance of cafe’s lined along the promenade.
I could quite happily pop El Medano into my pocket and bring it out when ever I felt down…will we go back ‘Hell Yes…this place will definitely be added to my must do again places…
Read about our stay in Paphos, Cyprus, where we found Archeological sites, good food, good weather and great people. It was also where our intrepid Boss came all the way from NZ to track us down for a work meeting 😛
It was a very easy place to spend 6 weeks, and when Jake managed to join a local football academy we really felt at home.
Check out Roquetas De Mar in Spain, looking for a summer or winter break, you can’t go far wrong with a view like this…
Alicante is the perfect family holiday destination, a huge soft sand beach lined with more than enough little playgrounds for the littlies..
Alicante has something for everyone, a cute old town with little streets filled with adorably decorated houses, Spanish poems scattered around for you to practice your Spanish, a massive more modern shopping town, tons of cafe’s and restaurants, at least four Malls, a castle, and more…with Valencia not far away, Benidorm for a laugh a tram ride away and the stunning Altea it pretty much has every box ticked for a great holiday.
As you probably all know by now I work through the nights to keep NZ hours for my colleagues and customers, locally that means I’m up till 6am Spanish time.
One bonus is that it’s a bit cooler, and it’s great if you like taking snaps of the moon. Check out the sequence I put together earlier today, might show the moons face in a new light for you. (Spoiler: check out the craters, full screen recommended as I don’t have a telescope)

Lagos is the first place we have returned to for a second full months stay, check out our photo’s for our most obvious reasons, but the scenery isn’t the whole story, this time we got caught up in football fever, made new friends and even found a Portuguese grandmother?

Podstrana Croatia, a little tourist town just south of Split.
We had wonderful hosts, a great apartment, a steep hill to get our legs in shape :/, great restaurants, beautiful beach….to read more click on the photo..
Kastel Stari was 1 of 7 little towns, all within easy walking distance between each other.
The whole area was so peaceful and tranquil, with crystal clear waters, a few little cafe’s and some good restaurants.
We even got to see another ‘Game of Thrones’ backdrop in the very pretty Kastel Gomilica.
