Day trips & short breaks.

These articles are all about short trips or day trips that I have taken, the places I went to & the things I have seen on my travels.

Raft on the Segura river.

River Rafting 2018.

Last week my friends Bernice & Angelia said they were going river rafting on the Segura river & asked me if I wanted to go. I had been before with my friend Mick & decided to go again as it is great fun. We were joined by other friends from Los Alcazares & the UK & had a great day out.

El Carmoli.

This is my second stay in Los Alcazares & I decided when I moved here to learn more about the area I was living in & also to see more of Spain in general. This would be my first tour in the area & would be a walking tour around the extinct volcano at El Carmoli.

On 26th January I set off early to pick up Karys for a day at Disney World. We had got one day park hopper tickets & were going to see as much as we could. In the end we saw a few attractions & enjoyed some of the rides at 3 of the parks, we had a great day.

Alan Morris at La Union.

La Union Mine tour.

My ancestors in Wales had been miners & I have always been interested in what they had to go through as miners. The conditions they had worked in, in Wales, would have been different but I would get an idea what they went through after visiting a local mine in La Union in Murcia.

La Lupi.

Flamenco in Cordoba.

When I got my health insurance & travel insurance sorted out after moving to Spain I decided I would go away for a short break. After scouring the internet for somewhere to go for a couple of days I found a 3 day 2 night break to see the 'White Night of Flamenco' which is in Cordoba & consists of ten Flamenco shows on temporary stages around the city.

Alan & Jean Morris on the Rock of Gibraltar.

Gibraltar trip 2005.

Whilst living in Spain my mum used to come & frequently stay with me for a while. On one such occasion between Christmas 2005 & New Year 2006 I had an electric problem on New Years Day. I contacted an electrician about rewiring the whole house & he said he could do it immediately but that it would take a couple of days. Not having any electricity we decided to go to Gibraltar for a few days.

Amsterdam Weekend.

In 2004 my friend Martin was 40 years old & for his birthday he decided he wanted to go to Amsterdam for a long weekend. Originally six of us should have been going but this soon became 3, with his friends dropping out because of pressure from wives & girlfriends.
