Alicante Airport → Torrevieja Bus Timetable

~ Disclaimer - information correct at the time of publishing this post ~ When we first moved back to Spain a couple of years ago, while Mark was commuting to the UK I would rely on public transport to get me around, especially for getting to and from the airport, for when I'd fly over to visit Mark during the week. At first I did find it hard to track down information for bus timetables etc for our little Orihuela Costa, but I did find a handy website called The website contains all the information for the bus from Torrevieja to Alicante airport and back. If like me when I find information like this I want it laid out in the most easiest, simplest, not have to think about it at all in anyway, kind of format. So, below I have grabbed the information from and laid it out hopefully in an easy way to read and something you can always screen shot and save for the future. The bus fare is   €7  each way. I alw

It's quite a small marina, but a lovely display of boats and a couple of restaurants too. The first restaurant is The Clipper, which we've been too a few times now (it was closed on that particular day though, I'm guessing as it's the low season).  Then further round the marina there's a much larger r

Exploring when you're visiting somewhere new

I mage Credit - 'Exploring when you're visiting somewhere new' is a contrbuted post to my blog which may also contain affiliate links, see my disclaimer/contact page for more info.

A lot of people go on holiday or see many places, but don’t do very much actual exploring of the area they find themselves in. While this is a perfectly acceptable way to go about things, the truth is that you can also gain much more by taking the time to explore a little. But if you are not used to doing that, you might find it a little difficult knowing how to actually make it happen. In this post, we are going to discuss some of the things you might want to consider if you are thinking of getting exploring in some exotic setting.
