Hi people

i am new to this forum and would like some advice..

my parents moved to spain some 7 years ago they life 15 mins inland from Torrevieja and this year my twin teenage daughters are visiting for 3 weeks and i will be there for a week. As my daughters and i are keen on tortoise husbandary and look after one in the uk we would like to see torts in the wild .. ONLY to observe and take photos ,
i have been told of an area some 35 km s/west of Torrevieja by a fellow tort keeper on a UK based forum www.shelledwarriors.co.uk
but could anyone here tell us of a more difinitive area where we can see wild spainish torts as close to Torrevieja as poss so my parents can check it out before we get there in july/aug 2007

all comments greatfully received

all the best Steve

thanks for the link .. i will have a study ......

the dead troll ... comes from a xmas game my family played a few years back ...

'' if daddy started a business what would it be called ''

we sat around thinking of what i could do and what the company would be called etc

then we all made up logos for the company and picked the best .

the company / shop was to sell comics / games etc the DEAD TROLL cames tops

i had the family logo improved by a graphic designer , much to the amusment of the family

even had some business cards and letter heads made up

i now use this name on many forums inc a number of tortoise / comic and ebay

that way i do not have to remember who i am on each site and people know who i am if them see me else where

all the best
