RE: Global Car Centre in Denia
You have probably found this place by now, but if not, it is on the main road that runs into Denia from the junction 62 off the motorway. As you go along this road, in towards the town it is on the right, near to Caprabo supermarket and opposite side of road to MacDonalds.
Travel Tips for Denia
In all restaurants service charge is included.You do not have to tip if you do not want to but tipping if you have had a nice meal is what i do as it shows i enjoyed it and the food and service was good.Waiters and barmen are not paid much too so tipping helps them out.Spanish people mostly leave their small change in bars and restaurants and 5% of total cost is a sensible amount to leave.Tip a taxi driver about one euro and around the same for porters.
Electricity-The electric voltage is 220 or 225 AC.Plugs are two pin.I bought a toaster and kettle over from England and just changed the plugs and they work fine.You will need a travel adapter plug if you want to bring say a hairdryer over on your hols.
Always tomorrow-Remember in Spain life is laid back and things can always be done tomorrow.When i had my house built it took alot longer then the builder said and i was prepared for this.When i had my sofa delivered it came 6 hours late.Expect this to happen.Its the Spanish way.Relax and go with the flow and dont expect things to happen on time.Its all about a different way and pace of life.Thats why starting a business in Spain may be hard going as things get done when they get done and not when they are booked to be done.
This is partly why i like Spain.Laid back lifestyle.Enjoy it ;-)
As Valencia has a strong arab influence from the Moorish rule most dishes contain rice.My favourite dish has to be meat paella which has rice, beans,garlic,chicken and other veggies and is lovely with lemon squeezed over it.Ive also tried the seafood one but prefer the meat paella.Valencia region has many dishes which include rice and in Alicante they make paella a la alicantina which has seafood in it.You can also get a dish called paella alicantina that has chicken and rabbit in which i found delicious.
In Elche a dish called hidden treasure is a must try too.It has sausages, black pudding,chick-peas and pork meat balls in it and i really liked it.This has a crust over it made by beaten eggs.
In Tabarca you can get rice cooked in squid ink.Ive not tried this yet.I think this is the dish ive seen called black rice and must try it sometime. had a paella meal for 8 euros and you have to have a minimum of two people order it as its bought out in a big dish. I had paella at El Port restuarant which is along Denia seafront just past the port.It has a great outside area and also a nice cosy inside area.Ive been here now 6 times as they do the best paella ive tasted as yet.Their menu is extensive and the waiters are friendly and helpful and its a very relaxing easy going place.Their wine is good value and their is a great choice of drinks.The menu has fresh fish and rice dishes,grilled food, salads, veggies,,, loads to pick from.
What to take
You can buy most soaps, creams and deodrants in Spain and if anything its probably a bigger selection there.Shops are as well equipped as England.Some of them have Tescos products in them too.What clothes you pack depends on what area and time of year you are going.Light clothes during the hot summer, t-shirts-shorts-sandles for during the day and something abit dressier for the evenings.Ive been winter and summer and found Costa Blancas climate very mild even in Feb.I wore trousers and t-shirt during the day and had a thick fleece with me for when the wind blew.
Bring prescribed medication along with you and Spanish chemists are also very helpful with medicines etc.
