How To Tell When You've Been On Too Many Cheap Holidays In Spain...

Mar 21, 2008
If you want to have a really good time, enjoy the sun and yet not put too much of a hole in your bank balance, you simply cannot do better than a spur-of-the-moment, cheap Spanish holiday. The country has a huge amount to offer and is very welcoming to us visitors.

However, once you've got into the swing of things and become a regular Spanish holiday maker, there are a number of important things to remember when you return from your latest cheap holiday in Spain - those habits you learned over all those weeks in the sun might not go down so well when you get home. Here is a list of the top ten habits to break when you get back from a Spanish holiday - including unfortunate hairstyle mistakes and the urge to sleep from 2 till 5.

1) During your cheap holiday to Spain you discovered that adding lemonade, fanta or even coke to red wine is perfectly acceptable, especially at lunchtime. Your UK friends aren't so sure.

2) On holiday in Spain you could party all night long. Now you can't get over how early bars and clubs shut back home - surely they're shutting just as you should be going out?

3) A bull's head on the wall of a bar is no longer a talking point for you; it's just a regular part of the décor in any normal drinking establishment.

4) When you left the UK for your holiday in Spain you were used to greeting people with a handshake or a nod. These days not giving every new acquaintance 'dos besos' (two kisses) seems terribly rude.

5) Since you got home from your latest Spanish holiday, you will only eat lunch after 2pm and would never even think of having your evening meal before 9.

6) You resolve that at 2pm there's no point in going shopping, you might as well just take a siesta until 5 when things are bound to start getting going again.

7) It occurs to you whilst you're on yet another cheap Spanish holiday that that the mullet isn't just an unpleasant memory from the 80s - it is a totally acceptable style choice for the modern youngster.

8) You don't see anything wrong with having a couple of beers before lunch if you feel like it - that's what you did on holiday. Cheap Spanish alcohol was always so tasty in the mornings, after all!

9) After a few too many Spanish holiday knees-ups, you see clapping as an art form and not just a way to express approval. Well - it adds so much to the atmosphere!

10) You have a number of close friends named Jesus, Jose Maria, Maria Jose, Angel, maybe even Inmaculada Concepcion...

But the most important thing to remember when you realize you've been on too many cheap Spanish holidays is to just give in and go and book your next one. After all, where else can you feel so relaxed that you take on a whole new lifestyle in the space of a couple of weeks?
