Benidorm

Originally posted on Covetotop:

Covetotop loves art, solitude and wandering off the beaten path … and he blogs accordingly.

And if so, what the hell is he doing in Benidorm?

Benidorm is not off the beaten path; it is at the very center of it. Benidorm is a Mediterranean madness, a never-ending fiesta, an ecological crime, a sunny, noisy, lazy and archetypical tourist mecca.

Yes; it could be a nightmare for sensitive people … but it’s so funny … the weather is so good … its beach is so magnificent … and the Mediterranean sea is so blue …

I beg your pardon, my little bunch of loyal and sensitive readers, but today I’m blogging about Benidorm. It was a little fishing village (Southeastern Spain) long time ago, but over the past decades it has been transformed into … eerrr … the kind of “Beni York” you are about to see in this post.
