The Name’s Mond

The names Mond, RayMond and for the past week I’ve had the licence to thrill and chill in the Costa Blanca area of Spain.

Winning a Sunshine.co.uk Mission I set off before sun break to spend 7-nights blending in with the pensioners of Benidorm.

I stayed in the posh Belroy hotel, with its own cocktail bar, nightclub, gym and two pools. So as not to raise suspicion at the complex that I was a tourist, I resisted all temptation to salsa dance with the senoritas. Instead, I ventured into the British Square and took base at Cafe Benidorm between the hours of 2am and 7am.

My mission was to report back daily and using the latest technology of a mobile phone, camera and laptop, I was able to send back coded messages via twitter and undercover pictures quickly made their way onto facebook. 

My trusted sidekick was briefed with taking pictures of me blending in with the holiday makers. Some fortunately were better looking than the meals I had to take pictures of.

At the Indian restaurant a suspicious waiter asked if we had any luck with the spanish ladies.

I replied that I was the only one who ate the spinach and it was lovely.

That befuddled coded reply, pretty much summed up my state of mind for the week.

Work has never been so much fun.
