    I'll try.... The Spaniards do a drink called a lumumba.... Chocolate and Brandy!!! It starts like a hot chocolate but gets stronger the more you sup it!!! ( It originated in Sweden, but HeyHo )....

    We had a similar holiday in Spain too and we were so relived to land in the pouring rain at Birmingham Airport. But we have had some really good holidays in Spain. Air conditioning in the hotel is a must, but I think you are asking a lot to expect good internet. Spain is not like Rochdale.:D

    From what I hear Internet access in Spain is considerably BETTER than the UK :D

    Ahh!! Does Mallorca fall under that recommendation?? And Cala Bona, nearly furthest north on the east coast?? I'm sure it was more like a 3G internet connection...

    You must have been lucky. In my experience even making a phone call in the Balearics is a nightmare.:eek:

    A couple of years ago I spent a week working in Tarragona docks and stayed at hotel in a little town a few miles (kilometres?) inland. The WiFi internet access in the hotel was one of the best that I have experienced, nice and quick, no problem.
