delve a little deeper....
I could post about the wonderful time I had in Spain, the food, the drink, the lovely sandy beaches, the history, the trains, the beauty of Barcelona and so on. I am not though, I am not a travel diary and everyone writes such things about Spain. Besides, I have a far more exciting discovery to share with you.
Late one night, well early one morning whilst heading back to hotel we came across this:
It's like a little shop without a front door and full of vending machines filled with all you might need after a night out. As you can see there is a coke machine, there is also a water machine and vending machines with things like crisps and chocolate and a machine to top up your mobile phone.
As you can see below (just about, they aren't very good snaps) the first machine has food in, not just late night munchies, but ready meals, sandwiches, a loaf of bread. I have never seen a loaf of bread in a vending machine before. I am easily impressed dear readers. Who needs Roman ruins or paella when you can discover bread in vending machines in Spain?
The second machine has useful items such as earphones, batteries, sim cards, cigarette papers and even a rolling machine, which I thought very useful. I'm sure stoners must be grateful of this when they get blurry eyed at 4am. Could you buy a rolling machine 24 hours a day in the UK? I think not!
You can see on the left of the top row of the second pic below that there are also condoms. Very sensible. Condoms should be easily found in the middle of the night. Nothing more annoying than pulling then having to search for protection is there? There is also helpful lube, which to be honest some of us need when too much vodka has dried up ones lady parts or if you want anal sex at 3am. I know I do.
So, after a night on the town, little tipsy maybe, a beautiful Spaniard takes your fancy and whispers to you Vamos a ir a la playa y llegar a conocernos un poco mejor you need supplies...
Some water because you need to sober up, some mints to freshen up winey breath. Maybe a loaf of bread and some olives to share as the sun comes up. Of course you need some protection (in a choice of flavours) and finally, what else would make a late night encounter really impressive?
Yes, a vibrator and some latex vibrating love balls.
How cool is that? Sex aids available 24/7?!
I am looking for someone to invest in me so I can open a chain of these across every city, town and village in the UK. We would make a fucking fortune!
I do have small doubts though that in the UK the place would end up awash with wee, vomit and passed out drunk people....
