Corvera (RMU) after half a years opening.

Once again I came accorss this news bulitain from Murcia Today.

This time I wonder if Corvera is not actually fulfilling its promises or are the charges too steep for the bucket-flights? Reading between the lines, it looks like a bit of this and some of the other.

Anyway, this headline caught my attention: Corvera airport lost over 69,000 passengers in first months of operation. Frightening thoughts went through my head like “don’t do this to us again, please don’t go bust for a second time”. The so-called international airport is mostly servicing flights to-and-from the UK.

If you are going to my flat check this out.

More about Corvera (RMU)

I was checking up on RMU (Murcia’s International Airport) especially who was flying to RMU and from which London Airport:

Gatwick (LGW) Easy Jet & Ryanair
Heathrow (LHR) British Airways & Ryanair
London City (LCY) no direct flights
Luton (LTN) Ryanair
Southend (SEN) Easy Jet (2days only)
Stanstead (STN) Ryanair

My main reason for this survey was that I had heard rumours about Ryanair NOT flying to RMU and that they had switched their passengers from RMU to Alicante, wow that would be an expensive switch if you had a car-hire lined up in RMU. I definitely wouldn’t be happy.

After having looked a flight schedules it looks like Ryanair, after the changeover from San Javier to Corvera have got their act together and are now flying on a regular basis to RMU.

Catching up with Spain

So much has happened since I last placed a post.

Novasol – my letting agent – suddenly, without warning downgraded me from 4 to 3 Star.
It just didn’t make sense; but I had too much on my plate to consider a trip to Spain to sort it out.

Novasol had contacted me stating that they couldn’t get hold of my key-holder, I tried but couldn’t either.
The lodger in February was NOT happy with the cleanliness of the flat!
This was now the second time I had been informed of said.

Also, when I was there at the end of 2017 I had noticed that the flat was NOT spick and span.
I did tell the key-holder that anything that could shine MUST shine, and the place should smell clean
– use furnishers spray to dust with, and air the flat for atleast day before any lodgers take over.

Anyway, I had told the key-holder that I was coming with a friend for 10 days.
We spend the 10 days cleaning the flat. Grrrr. It really was filthy.
The key-holder had put me in touch with a decorator, who decorated/repainted – the whole flat from top to bottom,
incl. stripping the metal railings and re-paint them. Make good any damage to any of the walls.
And of course, clean the flat afterward.

I had arrived home when I remember that he should also check the air-cons and get them serviced if needed.
Guess what? They needed servicing.

I also got him to install a air-went in the bath-room.

All this happen prior to the next 2 lots of lodgers.
And that was very lucky because of the temperatures during their stay.

Bookings update for 2017

I was tidying up my background database in readiness for 2017 and when I looked at the booking from 2016 I was so pleasantly surprised to see that there had been 118 days booked by my letting agent, many, many thanks.

So I entered the calendar for 2017 and moved all the pre-bookings and was even more surprised as there is already 110 days booked (28 of which is from my friend in Sweden).

Status Update on the flat

I had 2 rents late summer by returning customers and they were both delighted with the flat and its surroundings (as usual) and impressed with the changes I had introduced to the flat.

It is free for Christmas so if you fancy a cheep self-catering holiday away from all the hazel; why don’t you treat yourself to a week or two in a warmer climate than the UK? I have a special offer at £200 per week this 2015 Christmas.

There are lots of things to do, even at Christmas. Their midnight mass is something else. Christmas is different in Spain, which means the month of December is different too. How is Christmas different?

Well firstly, Christmas is not a major gift-giving celebration in the way it is in northern Europe; therefor no merchandising onslaught from October onwards and no huge pressure to buy unnecessary gifts for the kids – the Spanish do give gifts, but not on the scale of here in the UK and not until the Night of the Magic Kings in early January.

Christmas in Spain has not become the vulgar, materialistic excess it is elsewhere with all the ensuing insanity and stress; not yet anyway. So that’s great news!

Secondly, because of this, the things we do together are likely to be very different from Christmas in the UK. La Navidad (Christmas) feels like a celebration of family and community rather than an excuse to spend what we cannot afford and to drink too much. Spanish Christmas is a joy and truly, I have found it to be very joyful.
