Time for another Spain Trip update! Now that I'm back home I have time to finish all the "mini-updates" and then I'll get started on the full versions.

 

First off, a poem by MrMorgan to all those whose complained about the lack of updates....I hope you all enjoy it!

 

Then next up is "Festilandia" which is a small little kiddie park in Benidorm where James rode is favorite coaster of all time!

 

Enjoy!

 

--Robb

Dinner was awesome. Our night in Benidorm riding Draky was awesome. And the hotel kicked ass!

 

Enjoy the video, hope you like the update, and next will be Terra Mitica!

Hoffman Girl went around to take up a collection for next year's TPR trips. Anyone want to donate to the fund?

Hoffman Girl and KidTums! Fanboys rejoice.

"I"d like to have 3 tomato and cheese salads, an order of nachos, and plain pasta."

Yes....Elissa DID in fact order that much food and she ate it....ALL!!!!

Back at the hotel police offer Rich uses the scale model of the place to plan his raid.

Behind that blue door (I thought it was supposed to be a green door) is the most seedy sex shop ever!

festilandia_13.jpg.d4c10f2be4c65fa7bc01e761fc84b608.jpg

And in fact, right across the street there was a Sex Shop and a Pizza Hut! (We think this is a perfect combo and there should be a sex shop and a pizza hut on EVERY street corner!)

The park basically teaches kids all about porn!

Draky's mascot. This made Elissa happy.

Trainload of sad and pathetic coaster whores.

This was credit number 700 for Jeff. Notice he's making the jesture for holding a sign. Photoshop anyone?

OMG! JAMES IS SIMILING!!!!

Draky - the most RANDOM credit in the whole world!

festilandia_06.jpg.0c55876b69bf34d20aed70eb4b90264d.jpg

PLASTIC BOOB CREDIT!!!!

It's one of those places with lots of random decorations all over the place. Here you have the giant plastic aligator and Indiana Jones.

"With TPR we travel in STYLE!"

Seriously the place was on par with Disney deluxe resorts and the pool area was AMAZING!

festilandia_01.jpg.a1ae27eccd299922b3fbc748e3659de9.jpg

We checked into the Westin Real de Faula Resort in Benidorm which would end up being the nicest hotel of the trip.

(BTW, I'm told that tall guy in the background with the orange shirt is some Spanish NBA player....anyone know who he is?)

Holy Randomness. What's with the gaseous dinosaur (or whatever the heck that is) holding its genitals?

 

ETA: Great update by the way. What a nice hotel. That pool really looks inviting.

This is a very small but fun update.

It was 20 photos and a video! WTF! It's not really bigger or smaller than any of the other Spain updates I've been doing!

Great report Robb! You always put together a wonderful TR and YES there should be a Pizza Hut and a sex shop on every corner in America. I would love it! And I'm a girl! What would make it even more fantastic if the sex shop delivered!!! I would never leave the house! Holy crap I think I'm all hot and bothered now thinking about food and sex! LOL! Keep up the great work!

I didn't complain. It just felt like a small update to me, so I noticed. It wasn't my intention to complain, sorry if you think otherwise. I also said it was a fun update, and it is.

What was Benidorm like? I was at Terra Mitica on the 9th July.

 

I was hoping to maybe get to the park the same day as you guys. But, it didn't happen. I went to Spain with my friend and his family. So, I couldn't just ask to go where whenever I wanted. But anyways.

 

Damn.....that hotel is NICE!!

The joy of seeing Benidorm brings back some memories of a crazy golf course as part of, or, close to FestiLandia! I might be mistaken!!!

 

The last time I was in Benidorm was for a stag night/weekend. I got so drunk on Vodka that I broke my wrist fighting with a bottle bank, lost my trainers along the sea front, went swimming fully clothed at some stupid hour of the morning and then woke some poor old Spanish woman up by knocking on her hotel room in nothing but my underpants. I was on the wrong floor in the hotel.

 

Enjoying the updates

 

PS. May I suggest an update of purely "HOFFMAN" This would surely shut up the complainers!!!!!

^^If you are staying in a 5+ star hotel with 6 swimming pools, the most amazing garlic mushrooms for breakfast (as well as any other food you could think to eat) and are a 5 minute bus journey from Terra Mitica (including a random roundabout ride en route) then it is a TOP place.

 

Other than that, I would transfer Draky and the other assorted rides and the brilliant plastic theming to Zaragoza and then completely obliterate Benidorm, which is a pustulant wart on the face of a simply stunning country.

 

This is of course IMO.

Cool poem, maybe you should get some TPR sponsors and then use the funds to do a Jay and Silent Bob, and go to each complainers place and beat the crap out of them - they'll probably down in their darkened basements enjoying Hoffman girl pictures.

 

That resort looks awesome.

 

I'm glad the trip went really well, I hope you are both getting some rest before the Midwest trip.

nice video! and it was nice to meet you as well, but damn you for using sad music I am already sad I am no longer in Germany...

 

Morgan's video just totally made me emotional. Think it was mostly the personal choice of song, but still. I miss you all! Amazingly fun trip. Coming home to drama sucks.

 

Hey you guys! I miss it, too. That's why I had to dive in and get some video done... it makes the whole experience last longer.

 

Sorry that you think the song sounds sad! I actually always found it more inspirational. I love "Athlete". I don't think anyone knows them in the states.

 

Anyways. I'm already going through coaster withdrawal, and to combat that will continue working on the videos "featuring" (hi panthers) Phantasialand, Toverland, and Holiday Park. Can't wait to see everyone else's pics and videos and stuff!

Lol!! Love the video MrMorgan! It was a very fitting song!! The poem was awesome too! Was laughing so much, even the dog is looking at me strangely. Lol!

 

Loving the little kiddie park, is it far from Terra Mitica?

MrMorgan, that was funnier than any of the paint updates I did to lighten up this topic. Best part was the Hoffman girl part, I literally passed out at that time.

 

The resort looked seriously awesome and Draky was 20 kinds of WTF with a carny charm!

 

Awesome update.

I know you're young so maybe you haven't been taught this:

 

If you KNOW something is a touchy subject (ie updates), anything given should be received with much gratitude. So instead of selfishly saying "thanks for the small update..." you should have just said "Thanks Robb for the update!"

 

See the difference? And if you add "to me", such as you did in the above quote, you're thinking about yourself rather than being grateful you got something.

 

It's all in the delivery son.

 

Geez. It's like a buying a hungry man a dinner at Denny's and he says "thanks for the snack."

 

Terry

 

PS Robb: Thanks for the updates and all that you do despite what you have to put up with from the "ungratefuls", especially when you don't charge ANYONE to come to your site to look. Look forward to seeing you in two weeks for the Midwest trip!

I just want to put it out there that not all of us were credit wh0res. The panthers thought the beach was much more deserving of our time than drakey. Though there were far too few hot half (or fully) nekkid spanish men there

What a great video Mr. Morgan...thank you!! I got sad too...I wish I could have done the add-on, but Spain was incredible and that only means I have to do another trip next year. I'm glad everyone had a great time and made it home safely. Panthers forever!!

Awesome video, Morgan! I like this song. It matches the video and captures the atmosphere of this trip. I'm really looking forward to see the rest. Hope your shoulder is a little bit better.

The poem should definitely be the last word on the update "controversy." The whole Spain experience sounds great--is it time for Japan yet?
