Arrival in Spain

Up at 3am and on the road by 3.30am meant we had clear roads all the way to East Midlands Airport. We used the ‘Meet and Greet’ to park the car, which was interesting as we drove into a booth and a series of cameras took photos of the whole car before parking and walking across the road into the Terminal.
Everything went really smoothly until we were on the plane, a half hour delay in take off due to something in the cockpit, only to be told the plane had just had its annual checkup and the pilot was “sorting it out”. The flight with Jet2 was really easy once we took off and passed quickly.
We had choosen a Goldcar car hire and boy oh boy were they busy, we found the car and were soon on the way once Chris realised it was a gear shift and on course we are now driving on the wrong side of the road.
It is cardigan warm here, as opposed to thick coat and scarf cold in England.
A quick stop at Lidl for bare essentials and we meet the house rep, who took us through the security gate to the property.

Our house for a month and hire car. All looking very grand.

The front porch, roll on the sun and meals out here.
The back terrace overlooking the pool ( think it’s too early in the season for the pool!)
Our house number at Roda Golf Resort. 

There are three bedrooms two bathrooms and all mod cons. We settle in and then register the car with the security gate and visit Mercadona Grocery Store to stock up on food to last a few days. It is so nice to be back in the area we know and the house is the icing on the cake.
