Back in January for Mark's Birthday we went to La Manga for the night and stayed at the La Manga Club Principe Felipe Hotel. 

It was well over due to do something special for Mark's Birthday and after the previous six months (health wise and hideous commute) he definitely deserved a little treat, we both did.

We've wanted to go to La Manga ever since we bought our first house here on the Costa Blanca. It's only an hour away and after 6 years of being here in Spain we finally got round to it.

The drive was so easy and the roads were nice and quiet.

The weather was a beautiful sunny day with just a little chill in the air.

We drove up to the grounds of  La Manga Club and it instantly felt special and had that little bit of luxury we'd been looking for.

On check in the staff were lovely and to our surprise said that we have been randomly chosen as their star guest and we were given a free upgrade. 

The room was lovely. Overlooking the golf course, a huge bed, beautiful bathroom with a large bath and separate shower. 

Equipped with tea, coffee and a kettle too. Which if you've been following the blog for a while you know that's always a winner with me! 







After a chillout in the room, a couple cups of tea we got ready and headed out for a birthday meal. 

Just outside the hotel, literally a two minute walk is a small commercial center with some lovely bars and restaurants. Being January quite a few were closed, but we headed to La Barra for a drink first.

After some lovely glasses of wine we went next door to Dantes Pizzeria Steak-House. 

Being mid-week in January we expected it to be quiet, but to our surprise it was bustling. A continuous flow of people all night, which is always a sign of a good restaurant!

We had a great meal, the service was fantastic. the waiters were so friendly and made you feel so welcome. They even brought out a birthday cake for Mark at the end of our meal. Chocolate of course!





Breakfast was included and oh my it was a very good spread!

Mark and I do like our hotel breakfast buffet's and this one had everything you could imagine.

As usual we ate far too much, but it has to be done doesn't it! Our theory is it'll fill us up all day so saves us a lunch, that's our excuse for pigging out anyway!

We had a little walk around the grounds before we checked out. The golf course which the hotel is on looks lovely. I'm sure if you're a golfer it's definitely a course you'd want to have a round of golf on! 

We would of usually stayed for the day and use the pool and facilities, but being winter I think it would have been a tad chilly! So off home back to the fur-babies we went.

It is definitely a place we will return too. We're lucky that it is only an hour up the road if we fancy going to one of the restaurants, but also it's not too much of a trek if we fancy a night away again.

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
