First english lesson after summer break

Hallo to all!

This is my first posting after a long time and after my very short holiday. I spent my holiday in Spain on the Costa Calida. The place where I lived the two and a half weeks is called La Manga del Mar Menor. It's very nice there, because there are two seas, on is called the Mediterranean sea and the other one is called Mar Menor. I went there with the plane. I flew from Vienna over Hannover to Alicante. On the airport I rented a car and went hundred kilometer along the cost to La Manga.

During the two and a half week I made a lot of short trips through the province Murcia. I also went fishing, but I caught only two small fish. The holidays past very quickly and so I am now back in Vienna.
