The annual Patronal Fiesta begins on Friday 8 July with the crowning of the Fiesta Queens, and continues through the week. Highlights are the Chupinazo from 10.30 am on Saturday 8.

  • Easy home made lemonade

    Easy home made lemonade

    Most of the orange and lemon trees on the Costa Blanca are bare now, but there are, as always, plenty available in the markets and supermarkets at ridiculously cheap prices. Lemons are good for much more than seasoning paella or livening up your gin and tonic, so here’s an idea for you.

  • Protein alternatives when the heat is on

    Protein alternatives when the heat is on

    Summer’s here, and that means high temperatures here in Spain, which probably means you don’t want to eat a lot. If you’re starting to get fed up of salads, and feel the need for some protein, but not the sluggish feeling after eating a huge steak when the mercury is hitting the 40 mark, what can...

    The Blair Witch Project' with sun: How 'The Cucaracha Club' came to be made

    If you were in Torrevieja in the summer of 2015, it’s quite possible you were on the scene to see cinema history in the making. Especially if you happened to be down by the Marina, watching the Blues Brothers strutting their stuff, closely followed by local comedian and drag artiste Stevie Spit, ...

  • Parking or camping? Staying motor home friendly in Spain

    Parking or camping? Staying motor home friendly in Spain

    Europe – and particularly Spain – is much more motor home friendly than the UK. There are very few height barriers, and if you take up two or even three parking spaces, nobody seems bothered. Also, there are lots of places where you can pitch up for free – or ‘wild camp’ as it’s called in t...

    Shopping experience: Poundshop.com

    One of the (very) few things I miss about England – along with spring flowers, and all the green fields, which of course, need lots of rain, which I don’t miss – is hitting the Pound Shops. That’s those hallowed halls where everything is just £1 (or even 99p) so you don’t have to ask the p...

    No Ordinary Expats: Jim Barry and Jan Cave Barry, the ‘Man of Action’ and the ‘Woman of Faith’

    People move to Spain for all sorts of reasons, and often turn to something different in their new life in the sun, but it’s unlikely that too many of them possess such extraordinary talents as Jan Cave Barry and Jim Barry, or have such a prosaic reason for moving. ‘We were fed up with the weather...

  • Alternatives to alcohol in Spain

    Alternatives to alcohol in Spain

    One of the many advantages of living in Spain is the low tax on alcohol, which means that you don’t need to take out a second mortgage to have a good night out at the bar, or sit and nurse one drink for hours. However, it has its disadvantages too – the fact that booze is so cheap and readily ava...

    Home made lemon curd recipe

    This year, for the first time ever, we had about 50 lemons on our tree in the garden. It’s a big improvement on last year’s three, but you do have to think hard about how to use them. After all, there are only so many gin and tonics you can drink and still have a healthy liver! After making prese...

    Not into golf? Try walking football!

    Think of sport in Spain, and most people think of golf, closely followed by water sports such as swimming, diving and wind surfing. But what if you’re a man past the first flush of youth, who thinks golf is a good walk spoiled, and isn’t into water sports, but wants to keep fit? Walki...
