Outside of the USA there is not a better place to play golf than Spain. The sun shines 320 days a year and we don’t see that much rain. In fact it is a golfers paradise and in Murcia you have some of the best golf clubs all within 20 minutes of each other.  Ryanair have cheap flights to San Javier airport all the year round and hire a car or a quick taxi ride takes you just 20 minutes to reach the most of them. There is a new airport opening next year ( Corvera) which is even closer and in a few years time one of Europe’s biggest theme parks will open. Think drop the wife and kids off and they enjoy themselves whilst you have a game of golf. There is lots of projects there with key in hand properties at prices less than what they were 10 years ago. Just drop me an e-mail and I will send you information.  harry@perspective-espana.com

Since Roman times the Spanish horse been the choice for the great rulers of the world. They are also the foundation of the breeding stock in the USA. The Spanish horse has been in great demand as very prized gifts for the European monarchs and the very rich.

The Spanish people pride themselves in their horses and a lot of culture and tradition surround the Spanish horse, to appreciate this we have to go to the country and witness this.  Every weekend you will see many horsemen and horsewoman showing the skills and beauty of their horse. Nearly all fiestas have horses in the parade all colourfully dressed for the occasion.  The Spanish people are extremely proud of their horses as it part of their tradition and everyday life.

A magical day and a trip down to Cabo de Palos. Sea food restaurants in abundance, with lobster on the breakfast menu and the smell of fresh fish as never before smelt.  The views take your breath away, the colourful villas and apartments, The number of people out for a leisurely walk was amazing, grandads, grandmas, mums and dads with the kids too. Old men smoking their pipes and watching the world go by very slowly and enjoying life at a stress free pace.

The divers all putting on their gear (how they get into those suits I will never know). All shapes and sizes with a smile on their faces looking forward to the great adventure in these warm waters and no sharks, it can’t get better.  The small boats leaving the harbour with the divers to take them to destinations where there are old wrecks below the warm mediterranean ocean. Perhaps a lost treasure or just a small colourful fish who knows and who cares.

We are feeling thirsty and hungry now so we will visit one of the small restaurants and order a toastado and marmalada with zumo de naranja (toast with marmalade and fresh orange juice) and sit like the old men and take in the lifestyle of Cabo de Palos. Don’t you feel jealous? Have a great week.  Hasta Luego. 

Cabo de Palos is a charming seafront village with a unique 19th century lighthouse and two delightful beaches.

The Costa Calida begins at El Mojon, an old fishing village with a superb beach. A short distance from El Mojon you will find the Regional Park of Las Salinas y Arenales de San Pedrodel Pinatar, the most important wetlands in the region ofMurcia. Flocks of pink flamingos rest here every year.

Here there are saltworks which date back to the Romans that feature a complex network of pools. From Torrevieja take the road to San Pedro del Pinatar and visit the Casa del Reloj on the San Sebastian Farm and around two kilometres away is Lo Pagan, a town with the largest area of open-area mud baths inEurope. The mud baths are recommended for all kinds of skin complaints.
