Torrevieja 2004

Click each photo to see the full-sized one.

Nick, Stacey in the airport

Nick looks pissed off (this didn't change all week). Stacey's all blurry.

Cat, Nick, Stacey on the plane

Nick's fake smile.

Coach at Alicante airport

I don't know why I took this. I just took a random photo while waiting outside Alicante airport.


In Spain, milkshake is called Batido. This caused us endless amusement.

La Mata... Porn!

Yes, this way for porn.

Funky Clubbing!

We went to Pacha's foam party. Funky clubbing all round!


In Spain, they have a brand of bread called "Familiar Bimbo Sandwich". What's with Spanish products? (Unfortunately, I never did manage to get a decent photo of a Bimbo.)

Stacey, Nick on the sofa

Definately a "what the fuck?" expression.

Danielle, Colin on the balcony

Danielle and Colin, outside on the balcony.

Colin's Camera. On the balcony.

Colin. With a camera. Need I say more? :)

Colin taking a photo of me taking a photo

Mmm, recursion.

If looks could kill...

... I'd be twice dead

Cat reading


Stacey, Nick, Danielle, Colin in the pool

The pool we had was pretty cool :)

Postcard material

Cat, Danielle, Colin, Stacey, Nick

This is about the most integrated Nick and Stacey were all week.

Groupo Accion

What company would SERIOUSLY call itself "Group Action"?

Danielle, Camel

Danielle, with a camel. It kinda looks like she has an afro. But not quite.


In Spain, they have brown laundry tablets called Flota. Funniest. Thing. Ever.

Nick, Colin riding an Elephant

One of those random things aimed at 5 year olds that wobble a bit.

The Night Market

Just what WERE they talking about? :P

Danielle, Colin

Ack, I've been spotted!



Oh the fakeness.

Nick, Stacey





Pineapple Trees!

These trees looked like pineapples!

Danielle, Colin in the Chinese

Mmmm chinese!

Stacey, Nick in the Chinese

Fakeness once more.

G Spot

Yes, a club called G Spot.


Colin, as we're leaving

Ohh, we have Bimbo bread here. And Bimbo snack cakes. And Bimbo tortillas, which I just happened to have in my fridge now...

Does Bimbo mean the same there as it does here?

Aug. 3rd, 2004 05:24 am (UTC)
Yup :) That's why I grin every time I see the racks of Bimbo products at our local stores (the west coast has a large hispanic population, so that must be why they're popular here). The first time I saw those products I did a double take then started laughing out loud, I'm sure my mom thought I was crazy til I showed her WHY I was laughing *smirk*

I got a lot of funny looks taking photos of Bimbo bread and Flota laundry tablets...

Mi pueblo!!!!

(How are you, by the way? I've not spoken to you in...forever!)
Aug. 3rd, 2004 06:12 am (UTC)
Not too bad. Life's hectic.

It's not technically my town, but Alicante is the airport I go to, and I'm at less than an hour's drive from there.

How's yourself? Read things a bit shaky due to external factors, so hope that's improving a bit for ya.
Aug. 3rd, 2004 07:18 am (UTC)
I heard about you and Charlene. I'm sorry.

Where abouts was it that you lived?

I'm okay, other than little things. Things are mostly improving for now, though, which I guess I can't complain with.
Aug. 3rd, 2004 07:39 am (UTC)
S'okay, c'est la vie.

In Spain? Just next to Altea and Benidorm. http://interhotel.com/hotelkey/mapas/provincias/alicante-s.jpg See where the word Blanca is in the sea? To the left of that.

Ah, that's good. Always good to hear that things are on the uphill struggle than the downhill fall. If that makes any sense I'd be surprised, 'cause I'm not sure if I've expressed it right, but ya know what I mean. ;)
Aug. 3rd, 2004 08:22 am (UTC)
Ah, so Torrevieja -> Altea is pretty much the distance from Torrevieja -> Alicante doubled.

It makes a lot of sense. Thank you. :)
Aug. 3rd, 2004 08:37 am (UTC)
Anytime, mate.
Aug. 3rd, 2004 06:05 am (UTC)
i had the randomest dream ever, where you decided to fly here and we went on a date... and then u left. then a special thing was happening here, so i invited u over again, and u just got on a plane and flew over again ;) and u slept over, but u were gone by the time i woke up, and i was all sad.. i so wanted you in my dream ;)

anyways, i have no idea why i would dream of this stranger from my past, but i figured i would share it with you ;)
Aug. 3rd, 2004 07:21 am (UTC)
How random. :P

Unfortunately it's not a great time for this comment due to major problems with one of those internet-obsessives. Last thing I need is something else to spark off. One emailed Cat and said I was cheating (I wasn't!) and things are crap right now. Blah.
Aug. 3rd, 2004 09:24 pm (UTC)
haha yeah well, if it was feasible to fly to america to go on a date with me, then perhaps u were cheating with me.. two days in a row, mind you. and even better, in my dreams i kept trying to kiss u and u wouldnt let me. so honestly man,... ;)

is life well?
Aug. 5th, 2004 03:53 am (UTC)
Aaron, you went through all that trouble and you didnt even kiss her? Whats wrong with you man!
Aug. 5th, 2004 06:55 pm (UTC)
hopefully he would be smarter in real life ;)
Aug. 6th, 2004 02:49 am (UTC)
Haha, yeah, you would hope so. :p
Aug. 6th, 2004 04:09 am (UTC)
But unfortunately, as we all know, that isn't necessarily the case. :P
Aug. 3rd, 2004 06:38 am (UTC)
ah beautiful! looks about a million times better than my trip to new jersey haha.
Aug. 3rd, 2004 08:23 am (UTC)
It was a lot of fun except for certain "friends".
Aug. 3rd, 2004 10:33 am (UTC)
OMG He's so thin, so ugly and has such a messed up head.

*wanna go to a foam party tomorrow?*

'OMG He's so thin, so ugly and has such a messed up head.' And to top it off he's a complete wanker as well.
