Random Traveller Hello and welcome to the long discourse on Rhiannon’s Adventures So Far, that I finally made myself sit down and write because of the impending DOOM that is called Manufacturer Default.

However I will soon have to send it off to some unloving ruffians who will beat it and tell it not to keep randomly shutting down on me.

Alicante is a small city a few hours south of Valencia on the Costa Blanca. I went to school here for 3 weeks and had a ball. Traditionally everyone has classes for a few hours in the morning and heads to the beach for the afternoon. For me the beach ... Read more >
