    Just back from sunny Benidorm

    Post by Daryn on Sun 25 Jun 2017 - 15:21

    Got back midnight last night, woooooooow its been scortchio over there, never dropped below 30c for the whole week through the night and I didnt expect that. Had a great time away with a mate, met up with lots of people from our town. The resort was chocka day and night the whole week. Got a few photos I will post when I get them off the phone. Not long for Tenerife too, hope its not as hot as Benidorm I struggled

    Tenerife is just right temp wise Daryn, for me anyway. Usually mid to high 20s with a nice sea breeze.

    Done the Caribbean a couple of times, 10 hour flights,,, not worth it, apart from the flight times the cost, we were in all inclusive hotels, you were advised not to leave the hotel complex, also if you were going on an hotel run excursion you were told to remove rings and watches and leave them along with your wallet in your hotel room safe, we did venture from the hotel complexes a couple of times (no jewerly and just enough cash for a couple of drinks) to see what local life was like, weird would be the answer, you'd walk past two or three mansions/nice properties then next to them would be a shanty town the difference between rich and poor was the thickness of the brick walls surrounding the mansions/nice properties, got to say did not feel at ease out with the hotel complexes, so 4/5 hours to Tenerife it is...

    Friends of mine ask why I always stick to Europe, well although it has its dangers the likes of the Caribbean, Jamaica etc is alot worse. Nothing there for me, I like sight seeing that would be the best part but I also enjoy the nightlife and club style entertainment. 

    BUT a few places I would like to visit, Japan, really low crime rate, Thailand is supposed to be lovely but not too sure about visiting there but the Galapagos Islands would be somewhere I would really be interested in. Always loved natural places and been fascinated in watching documentaries about this place although they say its getting spoilt now with the tourism. 

    Also would love to visit Varosha in cyprus, I think it would be real interesting to see inside this time capsule, its mad what happened there. If money were no object obviously their is other places but these for starters

    Going to Albir in September, so will have a night or two in Beni , as for Cyprus ,my mate was with the F.C.O based in Nicosia for a few years ,and he took us to every part of the island ,he had diplomatic immunity, it really was fascinating to see and talk to the people in the north, we heard some heart warming stories about how people looked after their absent neighbours property etc , love it.
