23OCT16 - I have added details of Public
Holidays for 2017 applicable in the Murcia Region of Spain and local holidays
in various municipalities within Murcia Region. Please visit my 'Links' page
and the 'Public Holidays' section there to find this information, or you

6JUL16 - I have revised the page of travel
directions from Alicante-Elche(ALC) airport to Mazarron Country Club (MCC);
the previous revision was in February 2014. The latest revision aims to make
the beginning of the journey onto the motorway from the airport clearer and
less ambiguous, also a slightly later part of the journey less prone to error.
However, as many people now use SatNav for many journeys (I use TomTom, for
information), up-to-date mapping now includes most street addresses at MCC
under City/Town name "Mazarrón", for example the main avenue at the
entrance (with the statues) to MCC is called "Avenida Victoria" so if your
SatNav mapping is current, it will probably take you straight to your MCC
address, but my notes are designed for those who do NOT have SatNav, and
in particular those unfamiliar with the area. To see links to travel directions
from various nearby airports, please click on 'Location' from the menu at
left, but to go straight to this revision of directions from ALC please click
19JUN16 - Although I update parts of
this website on a regular basis, I do not always mention minor changes here.
However, I have today updated part of the 'Links' page extensively and in
particular the "Social Clubs & Groups" sub-section of the 'Community'
section, where the changes affect both a new group called 'MCC Life' and
the existing 'MCC Social Club'. To go straight to the 'Community' section,
31DEC15 - Toll rates effective 1JAN16
for all Spanish toll motorways supported by the State have been reduced by
0.6% as compared with those for 2015, the first time in at least 15 years
that tariffs have fallen, in accordance with a formula agreed in 2002; toll
rates are usually revised at the beginning of each calendar year. Please

19FEB15 - In July 2014 I started to include
information about national and local "Water Reserves" across Spain and in
the Murcia Region ('Segura Basin'). To make this information easier
to access, I have moved it from its former location as a sub-section within
the 'Spanish Info.' area of my 'Links' page to its own section there. To
view this information now, please visit my 'Links' page, click on 'Water'
in the top menu bar, or scroll down the page to the section called "Water
Reserves" - or go straight to the "Water Reserves" section by clicking
