Cheapest network to use your mobile in Spain

As you may know, I travel a lot and spend a lot of time in Spain. One of the biggest outgoings when abroad can be staying in touch with home.

24 Things you have to do in Benidorm

Watch Sticky Vicky’s sexy magic show. Eat something claiming to be food at John and Joseph’s. Do afternoon karaoke in The Black Chicken. Stay in Cafe Benidorm until the sun comes up.
