A to Z Dating... E is for Espana!

E is for Espana!
Edinburgh - Escape Room - Exhibition

Okay, we've cheated a bit here. We'd originally planned to try an escape room for E, but life got in the way and we never made it (in or out)! Luckily for us we had a trip to Spain planned and decided to call it our E date - Espana, since I'm learning Spanish after all!


We spent the week exploring the Costa blanca, soaking up the sun, indulging in good food, sipping cocktails and discovering a new found love for vino tinto (red wine)! Weather wise it could have been better but despite the wind and clouds it was warm and our Scottish skin still managed to burn!


We visited a couple of our favourite haunts from our last visit to the area. La Zenia Boulevard is always good for ice cream and a spot of people watching! Twice we revisited Brooks California BBQ and Gordon ate this monster of a burger, complete with lettuce, slaw, cheese and pulled pork mountain!

 

It wasn't all eating out though! A visit to the local market helped us stock up on local fruit and veg, freshly baked goods, garlic olives, cheese and Spanish charcuterie. While I love a good market, I also enjoy a wonder around the local supermarkets. It's so interesting to see what these are like in different countries. Of course I stocked up on my favourite cheap and nasty sangria fizz at Carrefour on day one!


When we did get good weather our mornings were spent in the pool or running along the canal. The afternoons were ideal for romantic walks on the beach (how cliché) and lazing together with a good book in the sun. Smothered in factor 50 of course!


I will  be writing some other posts about our trip to Spain over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for more.
Some say holiday, I say a whole weeks worth of E dates!
