While travelling through the Murcia region we came across a small village called Ojos, which happened to be in fiesta, so we stopped to look at the fiesta.  The people in the village made us most welcome and invited us into the church and then join in the festivities. They must have realised we were Scottish and enjoy a good party.  It was a traditional Spanish fiesta and the village folk dressed in traditional Spanish dresswear. It was colourfull and the music was indeed unusual. It was like being back in Spain 100 years ago. We used our best Spanish to have a conversation with the locals which they appreciated, as they do not often meet forieners in this inland part of Spain. It made our day and we stayed for longer than expected enjoying the atmosphere and we even had a lovely tapas with a traditional sangria.               We will be back Los Ojos

Its that time of the year in the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida, Spain. The fruit pickers are out in force, first it was the pomogrants, now it’s the turn of the lemons and in a few weeeeks the oranges will be ready to be picked.

When you live on the Costa Blanca or Costa Calida ( Murcia ) you see all the fruits being picked. Lemons are picked twice a year and oranges, tangerines are usualy picked from early November through till February.

There is nothing as refreshing as making your own fresh orange juice from freshly picked oranges with no preservatives. Yes it’s tasty and frothy and the smell is fantastic and the house is filled with fresh orange smell..
Freshly picked lemons squeezed over salads and fish makes them even tastier, and if you can pick your own all the better. Our garden is abundent with all sorts of fruit. Oranges, lemons, tangerines, pink grapefruit, grapes, olives and figs.  We are surrounded by pomegrants but not growing in our garden. The area is 4,500 square meters and also has a selection of herb and flowers which are flowering all the year round.

Sorry I just could not resist showing a Scottish version of Ryanair called Highwayman in the Sky. Honest I like Ryanair ha ha its just they don’t like me. I hear all the moans and the groans from lots and lots of people. Where do I hear them?   On the Ryanair flight of course.

What the feck are they doing on the flight I ask myself. CHEAP FLIGHTS is the answer, so the guy is right but its the way I tell them says Mr O’Leary. There is no such thing as bad publicity. The video quality is rubbish but the words and music are pure brilliant (Glesga Patter).
