We spent  Christmas Day evening with our friends Rosie and Carl at the Benidorm Palace. In addition to an excellent 6-course meal with wine, we were entertained with the usual exciting and colourful show, called this year Icons, and at o1:15 the next morning The Four Tops! The show goes from strength to strength and we have now seen it 6 years in succession. 

The next week we packed for a month-long trip to Ireland, UK and then a wonderful holiday in Vietnam and Cambodia. New Year was spent at Simon and Mary Louise’s new home in Wexford, Ireland. Chris and Georgie eventually joined us by driving to Fishguard and catching a ferry to Rosslare, after their flight from Southampton to Dublin had been cancelled due to fog.

Here are some photos of the partying and bracing walks we enjoyed.

We enjoy walking in the mountains and valleys around our home and although our activities were curtailed during the very hot summer, the weather has cooled considerably since September, making it more comfortable. Sometimes we walk from our villa across the ‘campo’ or countryside in our own valley and recently visited Isbert’s Folly, the small but disused dam in the gorge in the Vall de Leguart. We had only previously visited this place by car but the 10km walk there and back was very enjoyable.

We also discovered this year the Ruta de los 8 pueblos, the route of the 8 villages, in the Vall de Gallinera which is a half-hour drive away but allows to vary the distance we cover each time between the villages, where we are able to stop for a coffee or sometimes for lunch.
