Sorry guys. We went out for evening drinks and the had pizza. Got chatting to a young couple from Rotherham. We got back late.

Can only answer yes or no, so a question asking which language doesn't work.

All so far is No.

Clue?
Big holiday destination.

Clues in EU, warm and sunny, by a coast!
(Not a bike in sight? Watney's Red Barrel?)
Big holiday destination. Pizza.

Too easy then!

Not quite worthy of a riddle?

La Réunion would have been more interesting. :wink:

Yes, there are bikes and electric ones too.
Not seen any Red Barrel yet, but there is time.

Still here.

Long walks this morning after breakfast along the coast next to the beaches. Stopped for a couple of beers and snacks, then back though the town via Sunday markets to the hotel. Wine on the balcony now.

Temp today hit circa 23degC in cloudless skies with a cool sea breeze.

Loads of bikes, eBikes, eScooters, and mobility scooters.

Where are we?

Spot on! :D :D

Really Blackpool I suppose, but on the Mediterranean rather than the Irish Sea.
Sunshine, sangria, sausage and chips, and sand.

Off out shortly. More booze and something to eat but I have to wake a certain someone up from her late afternoon nap. It's hard work, this Benedorm stuff.

Back later, if I - and her - can stay the course!

:D

My daughter in law took my grandaughter there a few weeks ago as a treat before she went off to Uni. They told me about the killer mobility scooters :shock:

We thought about hiring a tandem mobility scooter just for an hour or two.
Trouble is, they only hire by the week. We still would like to do it, so we'll call in and ask.

Should be a laugh to drive one about, and we could take it in turns in the driving seat.

Back at the hotel now. Going to be watching YouTube shortly............Benidorm. :D

What is the name of that beach resort in the South of France popular with the swingers, hedonists and nudists?
