We had one last trip out with our friends Ol Bill and June before we left Marjal. They needed shopping and so did we so tagged along. Before shopping we went out to lunch in a Spanish bar. Set menu, you get four different staters, a main meal, a pudding and a beer, all for €15 each and it was very nice. The shopping was boring, I left that bit to Nikki, she does it better when I am not there anyway. I do help consume it though.
Our next site was only an hour up the road at Villajoyosa a old roman town. We booked the site back in July, bit of a gamble as it was a brand new site and only opened in July. But all is good. It’s called camping Imperium.Easy to find of the main motorway, greeted by a loverly Spanish girl who spoke very good English, all checked in and off to our pitch. Dry nice with great views all round.
Our pitch gets the sun all day when it’s out which looking at the forcast is going to be for the next week. Sorry about that. Yesterday we had a walk down to the sea, about a twenty minute easy walk, passing through the town and across the tram lines. The tram goes north to Benidorm or south to Alacante. We will be on the tram at some point to the delights of Benidorm, that’s the old part, not the kiss me quick, wheres my full English breakfast, give me another beer mate, I am going to be sick stag and hen brigade part of Benidorm. Villajoyosa is known for its painted houses along the sea front. They say it’s so the fishermen could see there house from sea. It does look very nice.
At the other end of the beach is a marina which we will explore another day. You can’t do to much in one day, when would you find time to have a beer and watch the sun go down. Also within walking distance is a place on my must do list a chocolate factory and a chocolate museum. Yum yum looking forward to that day. We are on this site for 35 nights so will update you all further as and when.
