Blogs in this series

Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Going up the Hill

We took a couple of friends to the airport in Alicante this evening. When we left our house in el Culebrón, it was 5ºC. When we got to our pals in Crevillente, which is close to the coast, it was 10ºC and it was 11ºC at the airport in El Altet. By the time we got home it was 0ºC in Culebrón.

Culebron is 600m above sea level (1968ft), Crevillente at 131m (429ft) and El Altet at 30m (98ft). It just shows what a gentle gradient can do!

The snow on our palm tree is from last January. No settled snow yet this year.
