To be fair Ferenc is actually Hungarian, so time to add an additional Flag Wink

well just had chat with pep, we're back in the hotel amic horizonte this year.
Advantages:
Short walk from porto pi shopping centre Thumbs Up
Decent food Thumbs Up
Decent rooms Thumbs Up
Good showers - unlike last years hotel.
The tap water is good to drink - this is not so at all mallorca hotels.
Nice lounge
Reasonably priced beer
Fairly near airport - not that that makes any difference to taxi fares.
Reasonable wifi - I'll be able to watch the rugby over the weekend Smiley

Disadvantages:
The coffee can best be described as brown and warm.
You have to pay for table water at the evening meal - David you owe just about everybody for table water, ya mooching scrounger  !
Bed bugs Sad


But I have my big spray bottle of bed bug killer spray.

So I'm good to go Smiley

Once I've done mine - it'll be 10 euros a room Wink

this is the stuff I have.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0117OTXD2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o...
Didn't need it last year, so it's still unopened.

I'll do the bedside furniture and mattress when i arrive.
Might not need it, but better safe than chewed to bits like last time !

Nope last year you did not come.
We went there yesterday, the slinging area is cordoned off with electric fencing and has donkeys in it.
Also for the first time in 5 years, we actually went round the museum. Some great stuff, I will post lots of pucs when I get back.
To whet your appetites, here's a sunset in ibiva.

Also, it's cold on the beachhead, doubly so if you come from Guam Smiley

Currently at training ground in Ibiza, went to stone beach this morning for play and collecting ammo.
Come to conclusion that my slings and fig 8, while perfect for tennis balls - sucks for stones.

So changed to a Shepherd sling, I think judop made. I'll ask him Thursday. So new sling, new way of holding it and byzantine style and throwing harder.
After practically no slinging between the last international and this, due to buggered thigh - all I'm looking at this year is not to blank. Smiley

Got trophy yesterday for being third foreigner out of three. Pep didn't want me to have it without points so I went back and kept throwing till I hit something. Was a Diana as it happens.

Sometimes just showing up is enough Smiley

Also got ancient lead glande and coin from Marcos. Great family !

I don't think I can express how jealous I am. I REALLY need a holiday. A slinging holiday would be perfection.

If it's black and brown jute it will be- I hope it serves you well!

I'm in a race against time to build a new sling before I head down... Got a decent-ish balearic one now, but it's a bit loose on the braid (this seems to always happen when I do it wet) and the pouch splits are a little thin for my liking.

A nice short shepherd sling will do me well if I can get it done!
