It captured my heart when I was 14. And despite lots of other experiences, sights and delights, it has held a very special place in my heart ever since. We’d gone to Spain on holiday to meet some friends; they’d chosen Mojacar – we booked late, so couldn’t get a package as there were only […]

Devon – London – Paris – Barcelona – Lorca – Las Piedras Stage four: Barcelona to Lorca Stepping off the train in Barcelona, I was filled with a strange fear.  So very strange as I have spent much of my life in Spain, I love the country and the people, and have always felt at […]

‘Let’s have a package holiday’ he said ‘somewhere with fun stuff for kids’. It seemed like the right idea, the 10 year old (who was then eight) deserved a kids focused holiday – plenty of action and things to do.  So, we three were agreed and off we went to get some brochures. We’d never […]
