After a quick stop in at Benidorm....
We finally reached Kieran’s family in the quaint little town of Pego.
I was pretty nervous considering everyone spoke only Spanish and my language skills are poor to say the least! Kieran picked up the lingo pretty quickly and now even talks to me with hand signals. Haha. I found smiling was the best form of communication. I feel like the best way to describe everyone is welcoming and lovely. I have to say that we have both become Buddha’s.
10.00 am: cake, biscuits and coffee (yes, sweets for breakfast!)
11.00 am: nuts, crisps, beer, soft drink
Noon: olives, yellow beans, nuts, crisps, beer, wine
1.00 pm: Noodle Paella
2.00 pm: Fruit salad
2.30pm: coffee and various cakes
5.00pm: coffee and crepes
8.00pm: tapas, wine
10.00 pm: chicken and noodles
11.00 pm: coffee
So it’s safe to say we rolled into bed – well that is after the fiesta. We all dressed up (I went as “spider woman” and Kieran as a “hippy”) and went into the town centre for the celebration.
Next on the agenda was more food (and lots of it) and a bit of site seeing. We checked out the local beach, rice fields, Denia, Oliva, La Cueva de Las Calaveras (skull cave) and more.
