Seville to Morocco

by delnero80

Hi!
I am going to be in Granada and Seville in December and wanted to hop over to Morocco. How long will it take to get from Seville to coast to take the ferry over to Tangiers? Will there still be ferrys in December?
Thanks!

Spa Holiday in the Canaries?!

by RussCrowe

Hi all,

Hi guys,

Just come into a bit of money and my lady friends wants us to go to the Canaries for a winter break. Anybody got any info on that? Apparently she's got the notion in her head, from someone, somewere, that the Canaries is a great place for all that 'wellness' guff - seaweed baths, massages etc.

Would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

PS And given that the IMF have just come to Dublin, we just might not come back at all.

I am sure there are spa hotels in the Canaries but sorry cannot recommend any as I prefer a hotel or villa away from the coast.
If you google the title of your question - you will find lots of hits - also some replies on several other forums to the same question - apparently also posted today by you - or your namesake (!) - on Thorntree and a few others. Perhaps worth taking a look at the replies there.

Thanks Ranger!

I am putting the question out there, because nobody I know has been to one. I prefer getting the low down from people that have been there, rather than rely on what brochures and the like tell me. Much better to get a review from a real person that's been there, done that, rather than somebody looking to sell you something.

Rgds,
Russ

December in France- where to go?

by ah117

I'm spending this December in France to visit my boyfriend, who teaches there. We are looking for a nice side-trip to take for a week. Based in Lyon, where would you recommend going? We are thinking something Christmasy, romantic. Any ideas? We've tossed around Germany, etc... Something easily accessible by a quick plane or train ride would be the best! Suggestions??

Re: December in France- where to go?

by royalempress

Check out the La Posada del Torcal in Southern Spain. A very nice villa that has a terrific Christmas dinner and fireworks for the 1st. The tripadvisor reviews are terrific on this Villa. We stayed a week and plan on returning.

From Lyon you can take a really beautiful train ride up into the alps to St Jean de Maurienne,a small alpine town and winter sports centre in an absolutely spectacular setting. The trip takes a couple of hours. Given the season you'd best book ahead. Google will get you lots of information about St Jean d. M.
Might be a bit small for a week.
Another possibility: How about Aix en Provence? Fast train to Marseille and then a one hour local to Aix.
Oh, and the train from Lyon to Marseille also stops at Avignon, very worth a visit.

Travel Tips for Alicante

Pack light

by BlackTshirt

Bring an extra one to cart back some of the excellent food and clothing that can be found here. Or buy one at the mercadillo for 15 Euros to take stuff back with you. Sandals - probably better to pay Spanish prices here. Spain is still home to a thriving shoe industry and they're sold at very reasonable prices. The mercadillo has a huge selection for under 10 euros. Forget it. Everything is likely cheaper here than where you're coming from. If you forget something just buy it here. Beach towel. If you forget, you can find them all around on the explanada. Bring a great attitude and a smile, along with some knowledge of the Spanish language, and you'll get along great.

by baserena

I didn't go to eat to the restaurant in Tabarca but all the isle it's full of them.
My impression was that they really looked like touristic places where you usually don't eat well.
I preferred (and suggest) to buy a sandwich with ham(boccadillo con jamon serrano) in the unique food shop of the isle. It's very cheap and really good.

Isla de Tabarca

by Aitana

To reach Tabarca island you can take a boat from Alicante port (about 1 h) but also from Santa Pola port, which is closer.
The island is not big: less than 2 km long and about 400 m wide. It has been a refuge for pirates and a prison.
Today there is a small fishing village in the island. Most people go for one day, but there is a hotel for those who want a short quiet vacation. In the restaurants near the beach you can try a caldero, a typical dish based on rice and fish.
The waters around Tabarca are a good place for submarinisme due to the diversity of flora and fauna.

Swimming in November

by little_mouse

Temperature outside was +21C and sun was nicely shining. It was the very end of November and sky moods were changing rapidly. I went to catch last sun beams in the early morning and swam in the sea. It was wonderful and fresh experience, and of course - locals thought i am crazy swimming in a winter time - specilay when i went to swimm during the rain on the very coudy day. Honestly - water temperature that day was warmer then outside! Take a try!

Hogueras de San Juan

by Aitana

If you come to Alicante in June, from 19 to 24, you will enjoy the Hogueras de San Juan, the main festival that takes place in the city. The hogueras are bonfires built with papier-machê. About 180 hogueras are built along the city. Also barracas are built, where groups of neighbors join for the celebration. Every day at 14:00 there is a mascletá, a long series of firecrackers, in the city center. The last day, June 24, at midnight, a big firework with the shape of a palm tree, called palmera, marks the beginning of the end: just after the palmera, the official hoguera is the first to be burnt; the rest of hogueras follow it.
During these days, many streets are closed to traffic, so it is a good moment to walk along the city with no care for the cars. People are relaxed, there are many barracas where you can enjoy the typical food of this period: coca amb tonyina (a cake made with tuna) and brevas (early figs). There are also parades where men and women wearing the typical dress take part, parades of gigantes y cabezudos, passacaglia, etc.
I have posted some tips on local customs and two travelogues where you can read more about this festival.
