Viviendo en Benimassot, Espana

23 August 2009 No Comment

As with attending any sporting event, the location of where you live or where you decide to stay determines what sporting events you can attend. For example, if the Ultimate Sports Wife and I did not live less than one block from Wrigley Field, we would not attend nearly half the Cubs game we actually attend. Second, living in Chicago, allows me to attend many more Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks games than attending Chicago Fire or Chicago Wolves games (teams based in the Chicago suburbs), since a 20 minute drive to the events in the city makes a big difference than traveling 45 minutes or more.

Nicole and I chose to travel to Spain to study Spanish. And since our friends from London allowed us to use their vacation home in a remote village around the Costa Blanca region of Spain, the location for our trip was determined.

Given the fact we are about a 90 minute drive from Valencia and Alicante determines most of the sporting events I will attend while staying in Spain. For example, while we are here, the Spanish national soccer team is playing World Cup Qualifiers in La Coruna (a 10 hour drive) and Merida (a seven hour drive). But since those events are so far away, we will not be attending – even though they would be a top priority otherwise. However, the Vuelta a Espana (Tour of Spain) actually rides through our area of the country so we will be attending the tour as they come through the region with drives of up to 90 minutes for the starts of multiple stages.
