Alicante the final day

Always shitty the last day, especially if you are flying and the weather is not cooperating (although better than at home)

So what do you do?!?

Drink and eat! Jamon de iberico!

Tapas and cocktails! Because the museum I wanted to visit was closed… Too bad. Just enjoy the Costa Blanca to the fullest.

And I did. I found the best spot in Alicante;

but the Garda civil kicked me off :(

But I did get a really nice shot which is rather unique (since it’s out of bounds)

Now to grab my stuff I left at the hotel and onto the airport! Back to Holland… :(

All good things come to an end. And this is the end of my awesome trip to Alicante.

And it all ended with a triple chocolate cake… 🍰

And now it’s like 19:30 and I’m Waaaaaaaaaay tooo early at the Aeropuerto… F*ck me a 2-hour wait. Lucklily i brought my laptop and there is ample WiFi avaiable… So Netflix is possible 😀

Aah…. It was all worth it!

Till the next adventure. Jay over and out.

Alicante Day 2: Sunday

Decided to have the same breakfast at the same place… €4,50 not bad!

Everyone was looking their “Paasbest” because it’s Easter ofcourse! Now (12:15) fireworks are already being prepared and tested I guess for tonight.

Currently I’m having a Tinto de verano at SoHo Heineken best the port.

But after breakfast I decided to climb the walls of the Castello. Definitely worth it!!! Remember the elevator on the way down is free! And the walk up is amazing so don’t go up with the elevator.

Castello Alicante

After a coffee at the top of the Castello, went down (for free!) And landed at the Beach. After some strolling around markets I landed at a terrace… Is it time for Tapas yet?!?

Port from the Castello

No! Time for a big parade with Jesus and Maria as central pieces.

Easter parade

But after a bit of Catholic culture… Time for…

Patatas bravas y Sangria!!!

And then some siësta again. After snoozing and calling sweppie in the USA I was very hungry…

So let’s score some beef! And why not the ‘Pan de la casa’ but what I didn’t know was that the bread was served plain… In a takeaway bag… Without butter or anything.

I had some with my entrecote, the rest I saved…

Because like anywhere in the world there are beggers and homeless. The ones who don’t deserve this lovely bread said no, but I made one guys day, since he was genuinely very hungry and accepted it with gratitude.

I fulfilled my Catholic dues this Easter.

After the casino, I headed into town. But the vibe is currently not there, must be all the old farts now sitting out the winter as Benidorm Basterds… Or because all the academia’s currently are having exams…

Although the cocktails are lovely as ever at my favorite spot on the Esplanada de Alicante!

So ill go score some Netflix (although I need to fix my VPN else I have everything in Spanish…) on my tini tiny travel laptop. While uploading some pictures to the corporate website of Meander. Which is celebrating it’s 5th year online without downtime! Thanks for that guys and girls @ – lovely hosting.

Living the life! Till blogs!
