Thanks for telling the "Lou thought the window was possessed" story... I'm not even sure what I thought was happening, but at least you didn't tell the "Lou almost got killed by a cyclist and it was all Robb's fault!" story!! ::lol::

Can't wait for more Hector, I'm loving it!!

Don't worry, I only have like three pictures of us (as in the group) from when you were here in August. I'm really surprised I took that many pictures over the whole trip and that so many of them were just freaking awesome!

Great pictures as always.

That was it! It strated moving as soon as we moved to go pose for the picture.

Great pictures! I am loving the report. I believe that Ron took the picture in the plane.

Lou, I must say, you did kind of freak out about the possessed window... I'm just sayin'!!

THANKS! And don't forget to take a power converter to Europe!

Sweet Photo TR, Hector. I wish I had been on the Plane instead of infront of the control booth when Lou saw the window going down and freaked out LOL

And I'm glad you wrote something about the Wave Swingers, because I think that they are pretty damn fast too.

BTW, the Buckets on a Stick are not as deathy as you make out hahaha you just have to be used to the height and the tilting of the bucket :P

It was a nice opportuniy to meet some of you (those who came to the Plane Ride :)) though you spent little time in the park :P Well, maybe you could come back when the Vekoma Terrain Coaster opens next year.

I'm not going to lie, I was freaking out a little too before I knew what was going on lol. And don't worry, we were glad you were at the control booth.

This park was great! What spectacular views. The great thing, and scariest thing about the chair swings is how it looked like you were going to fly right off the mountain.

YAY Ron! You don't know how many times I've heard myself say "Girl Please."

Stayed tuned for lots of pics from Benidorm!

So there's not much to really write about for this. We had the night to do pretty much whatever we wanted, so I'll let the pictures tell this chapter of this story.
We were the top, but then we got some new experiences being the bottom. At this point we were going down.
After what seemed like forEVER on the bus, we arrived at the nicest hotel I will ever stay at and we had an amazing view of Terra Mitica.
We're just happy to be off the bus!
Freakin' Walk-in Closet
Most (all?) of us headed over to Downtown Benidorm on the bus.
This was our destination, the credit/ flat ride at Festilandia
Draky, something I didn't feel needed my money
Indiana jones? Is this Disneyland Spain?
well, thee are the teacups (notice the lack of fence around the ride)
Off to the beach!
The other side
Beach Blanket Bingo? Is this a 50's surfer musical, is that what's going on?
New Sea credit!
Do the twist!
We twisted too hard :(

(One of these things is not like the other. One of these things is not the same!)
Almost as if someone else took it
"Pretend like you're going to dive in!"
YAY more people are here to join us!
Enough of that foolishness! Time to wash up and head out to other fine establishments.
I'm pretty sure they sold two girls one cup here
We found the british pub and I go to try windex! I'm now on an epic quest to find Jones Bubble gum soda and try to re-create it
Sand art
Looking down the Boardwalk
The last supper?
Some of us had a rather intresting dinner.

Some people (*cough* *cough* me *cough* *cough*) just had other people's (*cough* *cough* Lou's *cough* *cough*) yummy pizza.

More pics from Benidorm and the Hotel and the AMAZING view from it.

Next up is a few pics from Terra Mitica the following morning.
Lou picks yet another fight with someone on the trip.
The bathtub in the room
They gave us robes and slippers which were way too small for my humongus Size US 13 feet :(
The view into the room as you walked into the door. I was FLOORED how nice the place was.
The view from our room.
The reception area.
From one of the many rooftops of the hotel
The pool, one of three, and this was the middle sized one, the big one has a man-made beach.
The smallest of the three pools, and the non-working jacuzzi (maybe?)
Playing with long exposures with Benidorm
Naked time with TPR!
Another pretty artsy shot.
The model of the whole complex when completed.
Part of the big pool the next morning
I really like this picture, and not just cause it's of me.
Benidorm hung over from the night before

Wow, that really shows how amazing that hotel was. I loved it, definately the nicest place I have stayed in and I so wanna go back.
Drinking in the pool until stupid o'clock was one of the highlights of the trip for me!

LOL! I was just in Brookstone and saw the converter/adapter thing and said, "at least Hector had the converter!" So, I definitely learned my lesson! Somehow between the two of us we got everything charged.

Love the Benidorm pics!

FAO Dave Thomas!!

Notice in this picture-
I am wearing on my wrist a neon bracelet (unpopped), which I believe was one of Hector's awesome Elissa Bingo prizes. I thank you. ::D

"One of these things is not like the other" cracked me up so much!!!! Hector is hysterical. LOVING it. :lover:

I Love Eli Manning!

^^lol glad you're enjoying it!

And oh yeah, somewhere in all the traveling, I did in fact win Elissa Bingo: The Spain Edition where I got an amazing CD of random Dave Thomas music (thankfully NOT the scary kind) Some glow Bracelets (which I still have yet to actually use) and the book Ghoul by Brian Keene, which I really want to read but just haven't had the time to yet.

Thank you so much Dave for the awesome time killing game AND the awesome prizes!!

^I was seriously shocked at how nice this place really was (as well as Hotel ling bao at Phantasialand, but that's a little further down the line) and I'm glad Elissa and Robb were able to get us in there. This is why I would rate the Trips as a HUGE valuefor what you are really paying. It seems like a lot if you just look at the price, but if you look at everything you get it's more then worth it if you can swing it.

Thanks everyone for the kind words so far. This is taking a lot of time to do (500 pictures will be posted!!) so the kind words mean a lot to me.
