Bristol To South Spain

Easyjet runs a regular service from Bristol to Alicante in southern Spain. This charming coastal town takes a mere two hours to reach. The flight times are ideal for a weekend break. A plane leaves at around 7pm Friday night and there are return trips available early and late Sunday. It isn’t the cheapest discount flight. The lowest advertised price is 39.99 each way (80 in total) although if you have little flexibility in dates you’ll probably end up paying between 120-250 for return depending on how early you book. Alicante itself is a charming little town with a beach, marina and castle perched on the hill. The town itself would occupy a full weekend. There is a great little area packed full of bars in the centre which only really starts after midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. In fact some of the bars don’t open till after 12. The night life is very Spanish with a few Erasmus students but no hordes of British holiday makers. If you do want to join the throngs of Brits then the infamous Benidorm resort is 45 minutes away from Alicante. A bus from the central station costs 4 euros, they are also available from the airport, a taxi costs around 75 euros.

Coffee Shops In Bristol

Coffee shops are dominated by the chains sporting the same decor and menu. Bristol boasts plenty of Starbucks and Costa Coffees but the flourishing of a smaller unique cafes in the Stokes Croft area is a welcome change.

Kukus Coffee Shop

Kukus on Jamaica Street looks on to the famous Banksy Graffiti on Gloucester Road. It has very airy feel with big windows facing the road and a light colour scheme. Freshly baked basked of bread are placed at strategic points either for enjoyment inside or to be bought takeaway. They have a daily changing menu of specials which usually includes a vergetarian and non-vegetarian option. When I went this week it was toad in the hole and pasta bake. The toad in the hole came with a large varied side salad. They also have a nice range of soup. Service is always friendly and the place is generally busy without being too crowded. You’ll often see people tapping away on laptops using the free wireless.

Kuvuku Coffee Shop

Cafe Kuvuku is just up the way from Kuku’s on Cheltenham Road. It is a small cafe with an african theme. They have a couple of nice big leather sofas and a selection of books to browse from. Notably they have some nice large picture books with African themes. The menu is pretty standard with a range of fair trade coffees, paninis and salads. One thing that really strikes the eye is collection of Stokes Croft postcards on display on the counter.
