I’m back to work after a fabulous week away on the South Coast of Spain, an hour from the city of Almeria. Every day was spent on the sun kissed beaches (playas) of Vera, Garrucha, Villaricos, Carboneras and Mojacar. I just love Spanish names! Everyday was over 30 degrees, and everyday we were drinking either a mojita, a pina colada or a spanish beer at one of the many chiringuitos (beach bars). We ate beautiful seafood, huge prawns, tender calamari and paella (which ended up being a bit too fishy for my liking).
Did I forget to mention I got stung by, what must have been, a huge jellyfish from the size of the mark on my chest. On day one! It felt like I was electrocuted, followed by a nice blistering mark, followed by the itchiness of a 100 mosquitoes… The memoir is still tattooed to my chest today, and in every photo taken.
Yup that arrow points to the location where I spent 6 hours soaking up the sun, drinking the best mojitos ever. Ever.

You can imagine how happy I am to be back behind my desk working on websites.
P.S. I don’t think “Hasta la vista” was the correct way to say goodbye in Spanish. It’s direct translation is “See you later” and probably the reason why the restaurant waiters and water park ticket sales person looked at me a little funny.
