Lopesan Costa Meloneras Hotel

We've arrived, but the Internet is soooo slow that we're not going to be able to do many updates! The hotel is very posh and already had a run in over shorts/trousers to dinner, stupid Spanish!

World War Z Movie Review

What a great start to a zombie flick! No namby pambying around with back story and scientists fiddling around, there just is a zombie infection outbreak! Lets get on with the action! And it doesn't really let up until the few remaining survivors are rounded up on a boat and Mr. Pitt comes out of retirement to go and try and find patient zero. Even after this little break the action ramps right back up again, this is basically a full on, non-stop popcorn zombie flick. That is until Brad does something very, very stupid and annoying with a crowbar, you'll know it when you see it, but literally it is so dumb its unbelievable they left it in! Apart from that ace film.

Man of Steel Film Review


Forget everything you know about the old Superman movies, this is definitely the new darker 2013 version. New Superman, new suit, new sci-fi styled Krypton, just basically everything new! The story is a bit flaky and not made very clear, but basically Zod wants to terraform Earth and change it into New Krypton, let a huge battle between Man of Steel and the badies start! And what a battle it is, people being thrown miles and through several blocks of buildings, big flying things drilling the planet, a fairly weedy army trying to hold their own. There is also a nice back story, done through flash backs, of how Clark Kent grew up and maintained his secret identity. Not knowing anything about this film, it took a while to take it all in, and we really weren't sure if we enjoyed it or not. It took about a week to analyse everything and piece it all together to realise that we did and want to see it again.

Go Ape Segway

Today we headed to Swinley Forest near Bracknell to do Go Ape Segway through the forest. The hour experience starts out on a test track, moving onto 3 looping tracks of varying difficulty, then onto the long trip home, which takes the long way round Swinley Forest back to Go Ape HQ. Great fun and highly recommended. No photos this time, but video below...

Basingstoke Kite Festival


It was such a nice day and on the way back from a quick visit to town we saw signs saying "Kite Festival", so we decided to visit! Had a nice wander round in the sun, saw a giant teddy bear kite and watched the stunt show kites.
