Flag of Spain  , Valencian Country,
Thursday, December 11, 2008

Woke up in the dark this morning around 5.00am (after not getting to bed till 1), and Rima's Mum had breakfast all laid for us ... I don't know what time she rose, but her hospitality was incredible and hugely appreciated. 

Anyway, Grandfather came to collect us by 6.00am, and to cut a long boring story short, it took us 3 hours to get out to the airport.  We arrived at 9.15 (for a 10.30am flight), raced in, and this time we got most of our luggage on, bar a couple of bags which were small enough to take on as hand luggage, albeit very heavy hand luggage.  

Our flight was a short 2 hrs 20, just enough time to have a quick bite, do some travel blog, and then we were descending.  (Our car trip to the airport was longer than our actual flight!)  

As we landed in Alicante airport, I looked out the window to the cloudless skies, into the mountains of Spain, and took a deep breath - we've finally made it.  What started out as a shared thought and a dream one evening back in Normandy Road, has now become our reality.   Do dreams really come true?   Yes!  As long as:   one - it's meant to be and two -  you plan it and work to achieve it.

We couldn't be happier, and now our next journey begins ....

Hi guys,

I have not been on the computer for a couple so have just caught up now.
Every blog has been great reading which makes me think the next stage for you Christine, apart from enoying everything that Spain and Europe has to offer of course, should be writing books....just a thought...
You all look great!!
