My friend Connor and I headed off to Spain on 6th June for a 2-week holiday, which would include travelling around the east and south, and meeting up with some friends from Belfast who now live out there.
As we prepared to board our flight to Alicante we bumped into an old acquaintance called Moondog, who both Connor and myself used to play football with. He and his mates were on a stag party heading to Benidorm.
