Holiday And A Few Tips To Playa Flamenca

From March when I last visited Spain.

Sunbathing on the roof balcony.

Ready to go home....
This is a view of the pool with the villa in the background, top left.
I can't wait till Thursday. I'm going on holiday. This time it feels like I need a holiday more than ever as I have been struggling with my health so much lately and been working full time at the same time so I feel very drained.

Mike's sister has got a lovely villa in Torrevieja, Spain. The villa is part of a complex with lovely gardens and pools. It is a perfect place for a quiet and restful holiday. I look forward to sitting out on the sun terrace in the mornings having lazy breakfasts with fresh breads and lots of lovely fruits. Looking forward to long hours in the pool, nice barbecues on the patio and day trips to Cartagena and the little island of Trabarca. 
The summer and autumn have been quite hard on me with unknown health issues so I really need this brake from work. 
When first in Spain I will visit several markets that I love. My favourite market is the local one in Playa Flamenca . Every Saturday it is a market just down the street from the villa and this market is a big and very good market. They sell all kind of stuff you can imagine. Fresh fruits, berries, vegetables, nuts, clothes, shoes, belts, handbags, accessories, sunglasses, art and all kind of things you can imagine. I haven't found much plus size clothing here, but it is an eldorado for accessories so I always manage to find some cool bargains.  It's very popular and busy, a real experience to see all the haggling going on to secure a bargain. As all other busy places there are pick pockets so I always take extra care of my valuables like phone and purse.  
Last year it was opened a brand new shopping centre just 5 minutes drive from where we are staying. Zenia Boulevard. It is a big shopping centre with lots of different shops and you can easily spend hours here. Plus size clothing is something I find very difficult to find in Spain, but at Zenia Boulevard you can find Primark, H&M and C&A where I can find nice things that I can fit into. There are lots of other lovely shops that I have found bargains in before so it is all about taking a look. There are also great shops for shoes and jewelry in and not to forget they have the most luxurious bathrooms I have ever seen. Amazing.

Toilets at Zenia Boulevard. So pretty!
I'm sure I will have a great time and I can't wait to share my outfit photos from Spain with you guys and also some new buys throughout the time I'm there.
