Any where near Maspalomas per chance :D
From you, head towards Gibraltar, then travel the entire length of the Med ;)
was there last week, filling hire car up, 98pL, fags 22 per 200,  diserano 12.50 for huge bottle,, otherwise nothing else is cheap.
Petrol is about that here in GC, flags vary between 20-35... Biggest shock was that a litre of JD is 30 :o had I known, I would have bought some with me ::) Still at 12 a litre, Malibu is perfectly drinkable once the hotel bar shuts at 11 :D
Ahh, you've gone to one of those parallel universe things. ;)

It wasn't the hangover I was worried about. Only time I ever tried it, it bounced.. and my similarly afflicted mate baggsied the only loo before I got there. :(

If the fatty admin is off on a cruise then it may need a freighter for the return flight.
Upon landing, the plane didn't slow in time for the usual taxiway exit.

The amount I've scoffed/drunk, the landing in Blighty is likely to end up on the M1 ;D

I'm hoping said Fiat Whatever has a really small tank, as its used a shed load of petrol already.

Its a pleasant enough car, slight squeeze for 5 adults when we decided to take a single car to beach yesterday late afternoon, probably one of the better hire cars I've had recently.  But I feel no love/desire or anything for it, and wouldn't want one. Yet there is nothing annoying about it (granted this one feels like it has a 500cc engine, but sure other engine choices are available). Strange.

True, but I live near this one and the parking is free :P

Jesting aside, after two weeks all inclusive, I very much doubt that I will need to eat until September...  ;D

I do prefer self catering - not that we ever cook - for convenience and variety.  All the Inclusive breaks I've been on the food was a bit naff.  Probably a combo of below restaurant quality food at most hotels, and the fact I don't eat seafood, which is a probably at most beach type holidays.

But I can understand the desire for Inclusive :y


Also not a fan of hotels, a bit too impersonal and regimented.  Whereas now, I'm laying in bath, door open so I can see the news on the tele downstairs (on a bit of a mezzo floor here), and shortly will shout to one of the girlies to order me a pork kebab in pitta.


I too will never need to eat again!

I love hiring a villa, own pool, own house, own rules  :y

Sadly it was easy peasy with just me and MrsT as we could hire any POS box with seats.

With the Little Miss T's it gets rather more expensive, due to car seats and thus larger car. Looking forward to doing these again when the girls are older.

Expect number 6 to be different...

135 coil pack comes out without touching anything else :o

Undo the bolts and unplug, lift as far as possible then roll to the wing...

Contrary to urban myth it is possible to change all six plugs in less than 30 mins...  :y

Seems a favourite for garages to save on these days. A neighbour, who was charged for new plugs at last service, the plugs hadn't been out for years! :( :( :(
