It’s a journey day. We are getting good at this! All packed and off by 10am for our travel to Albecete. Wow how the scenery changed. Getting nearer to our destination we travel through mountains and gorges very reminiscent of our journey in Colorado. Trees everywhere. Arriving camping rio Munro ???? it appears basic, but does have everything and amazing wifi. I watch interstellar on Netflix it’s so good. Lazy night. Mike buys cakes and the best cheese puffs ever. Diet blown. The air is cooler here on a night. Benidorm tomorrow. Am I excited or scared? It must be 20 years since our last visit…..

Hello Benidorm! Great site villaSol with an amazing pool area. We get a lovely pitch 021 and set up. A cycle into the metropolis, along the levante front to the old town. Heck what a difference of 20 + years can make. The old town is almost the same and we had a quick recci. Saw some familiar names. The bar we almost bought had been pulled down ready for another block. Back to site to put up the awning in cooler temperatures, meal, shower and we’re off into town. Starting at barcode (they had slimline tonic) gin and tonic for me red wine for Mike. They make things too strong! We should stick to red wine as my body knows what to expect lol. Kings bar next (they give nibbles) rainbow popcorn, jelly shots, crisps. We found People bar under new owners and it was fab. Great music and crowd. We will come here every night I expect. Attention was paid!

Read, swim, rest, eat, shower, party, repeat. I broke a tooth first thing on the Saturday so will have to wait until Monday to sort ????. Benidorm is crazy.

We stuck with our weight ????. I got my tooth sorted with a temporary which cost 90€! Lazy day until cooler night. The weather has been lovely. We tended to go to Kings bar (not because of the rainbow popcorn, the free crisps or the vodka jelly shots) early and then onto People bar. We had a very nice stay!
