The Safari Park.
Stella is all set to go.
Hello all. We have now left Spain and flew to Bergen with Chris, Hege and the kids late Monday night. So Spain is finished and our 4 weeks in Bergen begins. Spain was fantastic in all ways, apart from the fact that I caught a tummy bug which shot me down for 3 days, but all is well and thats what happens. We spent most of the time at the beach, pool or wondering the towns, but also visiting a Safari Park and a fantastic water park called Aqualandia Benidorm. The safari park was interesting with all sorts of animals and we were driven around this on trailers towed by 4 wheel drives. We managed to hand feed giraffes and Lilly rode a camel. The water park I missed due to being stuck at home unwell, but I am told it is unbelievable. It covers a huge area and has so many different types of water slides, gentle, wild, long and short, set in nice pools and country. I am peeved that I missed it although I don't think I would have done the extreme one that Chris did. We got to know Alicanti much better and while some of it
Lilly sits calmly and lets a snake slither around her neck.
is a bit messy, the old town and the water front is great. A fantastic marina and some magic little streets with interesting shops and restaurants. A fort overlooks all of this and is quite impressive looking up at it. Perhaps one day i may find the energy to walk up to it.
I did mean to put a blog out before I left NZ about a visit that Martin and I did to the 3 farmers and families that were on Therapy with us in 2012. Great day catching up with everyone, having a great lunch and having a quick look at the farm which is a long way out toward the coast in the North Wairarapa. Robert and Bruce of course joined us again on Therapy last year. We will catch up again when I'm back in NZ.
So to Norway and we have arrived with wonderful weather so will hopefully not lose to much of my tan. Pip/Rod
