hello hello dears and welcome back to the channel  bakingdom by anna where we share with you a lot of   interesting and useful information from benidorm  town and spain in general today i was supposed   to go outside to film however uh benny dong  was covered in a lot of smoke it's not smog   okay it's smoke uh it's a lot of ashes that we  have all the terrace covered still right now a   lot of people were calling to the police to alert  that there is some fire going on around us however   it's not here in general in benidorm so if you are  here if you are afraid of this no sense of smoke   it's not here it's near denia but with the wind  all the ashes and all the smoke came here to   benidorm zone uh it's here in albir naltea you  know we can feel it and there's a lot of ashes   in the air still probably by midday it's gonna be  gone but by the time i'm filming it in the morning   it is here quite present and this is the um sadly  the quite a big fire that already burned more than   three thousand um they're called ectarias i'm not  sure how it is in english but you know what i mean   um burned in valle de beau which is murdenia town  a really really unfortunate fire due to the storms   that we have uh last few days when it was clouded  here there were some storms on the northern part   and one of these storms basically hit with the  lightning um in there and basically caused this   huge huge fire that is still pending to be  extinguished people were being evacuated   um and it's not happening only there it's  happening in a lot of different parts in   spain which is really really sad in  general spain um this year is first   of europe with the amount of burnt uh forests and  burned ground this year which is um not a pleasant   situation this summer definitely without any  comparison at all is the worst summer in the last   couple of years at least maybe five or six last  years we've never had a summer like this before   when there was so so many areas burned where so  many people suffered from it had to be evacuated   with such a strong heat and humidity some of the  days it's definitely not typical to our zone and   i hope it somewhere like this will not be here for  the next decade or so because it was really really   hard to stay outside to be able to enjoy simply  this summer in here because you would think summer   is to stay outside somewhere else to enjoy parks  the beach you know theme parks to go somewhere   travel see things walk around um but no this  summer we mostly stayed on the inside with the   air conditioning sad but true situation uh in  general the situation here in the country is quite   good you know people are traveling a lot there's a  lot of movement on the highways and speedways here   in spain a lot of cars so if you are traveling  with a rented car be really really careful   uh we went to alicante the other day um and  we basically have seen at least four or five   accidents directly in front of our car people just  crashing to the back to the other car because they   did not maintain the distancing or because they  were checking like a phone gps something you know   and the other one just stopped randomly so there's  a lot of car accidents in here um apart from that   tourism is doing really really well um you know  we've had a lot of negative news about this but   even with these negative news people are  traveling uh benidorm is full altia albir all   valencian community the balladic islands canarian  islands even northern parts of spain are quite   busy looking right now uh there are still a lot  of british tourists coming as nothing has ever   happened from portugal from france um northern  countries like norway for example netherlands   belgium a lot of people are choosing our area  for their summer holiday is in august however we   do see that slightly less british are coming right  now because they have their bookings starting from   september a lot of people don't like this extreme  heat and they choose other months to enjoy our   lovely area than right now when we basically  hit almost 40 degrees these last couple of   days the second news that i wanted to share with  you all is something that i've been telling to you   for a while i did quite a few videos on this theme  uh about what to be careful on when you're coming   to benidorm uh i might do a separate video for  it refreshing the memory and just giving you some   more examples however i do want to say that right  now it's really really um dangerous you need to   be really cautious about what you bring with you  about um how you act where you go what you do just   in case because there are a lot of thieves a lot  it's not even a single word a lot is just like   this comparing to what we actually have uh  the worst place right now to go on holidays   in a sense of robberies that someone got  robbed or their things basically stolen   is barcelona barcelona is a lovely town i've  visited it a couple of times in my life already   and i like it i love the architecture i love  so so many things that you can see there   but one thing i hate about it absolutely 100 is  that your things might get stolen just like this   it's the truth you know uh usually it's not a  secret for people who visit it frequently or for   people who live there or for national tourists  you know uh we're really really well informed   about that but the thing is that in barcelona  throughout the holy year there are a lot of   thieves uh like working there non-stop especially  in metro stations you need to be really really   careful if you use metro with your back don't  forget to put in your your bag on your um   on your back put it here in front or if you have  a a like a normal bag you know for ladies put it   right here in front as well or keep it in  your hands don't put your mobile phone in   the back pockets or your uh wallet nothing forget  about it because it's it's just basically saying   take me take me take me steal me  steal me you know don't do that   uh because you risk uh you have a really really  high risk then of getting your things stolen this   is happening a lot but right now in summer on the  beach areas it's also a thing there was one um   rtve which is spanish national television they  were making a uh basically a footage filmed on the   beach uh the other day i think was yesterday or  the day before and they were having an interview   with just random person on the beach saying why  did they come to barcelona how do they like it you   know and on the back while that person is speaking  right here on the back someone was stealing a bag   can you imagine even in front of the cameras they  were just stealing a bag of course obviously that   was filmed they brought it to the police you  know uh the person recovered their um bag with   all the things inside but this stress is just  unnecessary if you go to the beach in barcelona   don't bring any kind of bag with you go from the  hotel directly to the beach just with a towel   and with a hotel room key you know something  but that's it don't bring anything with you   no mobile phone no money especially cash no cars  no nothing and leave your documents in the hotel   room which is what we'll be talking about in a  second uh because they just steal it they see that   there's no one even if just for a second you go  to the water they already are taking your things   the worst situation as i've said is in barcelona  however it's not the only one in madrid there's   some robberies as well not so not such a high  amount you know as in barcelona is but still   there is in valencia in a lot of areas in alicante  in benidorm there were some news also in benidorm   that um a few families british families got their  things stolen from the hotel room uh and this is   from one of the uh hotels that we have in here  that is really really popular for british tourists   i'm not sure if to tell it or not but i  mean people deserve to know right tourists   deserve to know if it's if it's safe or not  to go there so what they have i'm gonna say   this was the sol pelicanos which is of hotel chain  milia however it's not melialic fold uh basically   this is the hotel sol pelignos with these red  letters you know that is situated um right like   towards the british area near the flash hotel like  on that that side near nereo hotel as well uh and   uh this hotel is not the first time it's happening  i think it was two times already in there   with like a difference of just a couple of days  the rooms were open so the door was forced uh   so far as i know because i've asked it to the  police department directly um i've asked what   happened they could only give some certain amount  of details obviously due to the investigation   however uh what i've managed to see is that um  the door was forced uh the people that were doing   this they got inside and they checked everything  around and uh they've stolen what they could have   and the safety deposit box as well you know uh  the worst thing about this is that the hotel   um according not not according to myself okay  according to the guests to these families um they   said that the hotel was not friendly at all they  did not even give them any kind of solution they   uh kind of tried not to bring it to the police  you know avoid calling the police and they just   tried to make like nothing ever happened you know  probably it's because they know that there are   people who will talk about this which i'm um doing  right now as well however i mean it is what it is   you deserve you guys deserve to know which hotels  are safe to go which hotels are safe for your   belongings because i don't want you think that all  the hotels are the same there are amazing hotels   in benidorm which i've showed you here on the  channels as well where you've never experienced   the robbery before you know where they don't have  these kind of issues there are really really safe   hotel rooms so don't think that every single hotel  is like this why is it happening in sol pelicanos   i don't know probably it's because of  lack of security probably because the   thieves they know that these doors are really  really easy to be opened and forced probably   because they know that city deposit boxes are  easy to be open and hacked i don't know but   um the thing is that this is the hotel right  now that has this bad fame of um getting things   stolen from the rooms and which is why a lot of  tourists are afraid to leave their belongings   uh and try and bring them with them especially all  the money you know the car the passport everything   that they have and then they might get these  things stolen easily at the beach which is not   right i mean all the hotel rooms should be secure  all the hotel rooms should be um a fortress where   you can leave your things and you would know that  no one will enter to your room without you knowing   it and asking for it you know that your thing  should be safe in that if it's not the case then   sadly speaking i'm really sorry for that hotel  but it's true if you know it's not the case then   you should not probably be staying at one of these  hotels um it is how it is i mean if that happened   something is not right you know so you need to be  really really careful if you are not sure uh as i   say the majority of the hotels here in benidorm  are safe so you don't need to worry about it um   this hotel in person you know already what people  say about it what has happened so you decide   if you want to stay there or not um maybe it's  not a bad hotel but if you decide to stay there   uh try and i don't know give to reception your  passport so they could store it or give like a   um a bag or something to reception so they  would store it in their safety deposit box   do some kind of changes you know to make sure  your things are safe um but if not you can   always choose a lot of other amazing hotels that  we have here in benidorm that are really safe   that don't have these issues that have cameras  uh that are friendly and will help you to deal   with any kind of um issue that you might have  during your stay so it's really really sad that   the reputation of that one has just fallen  quite a lot during the last couple of   days i just hope that uh seeing what this provoked  seeing that it was in every single news here   in spain in very important local newspapers in  the international press as well you know a lot   of people talk about it here um they will learn  from that and uh make sure this will not happen   ever ever again because people will just lose  confidence in this place eventually however this   is not the only uh things that are happening here  in benidorm there are a lot of tricks people use   to make you look at something while they are  stealing your things you know there are a lot   of tricks that they're doing to tourists as well  um and this is probably will go for another full   length of video uh here in bennington which i will  prepare for you this week or the beginning of next   week so that you would be informed and careful  and so that you your belongings would be safe   in place for the entire holidays here in benidorm  and spain in general and the last news is about   a giant amount of celebrations that we have in  here you know that um this weekend we had castillo   de la hoya in altea which was amazing firework i'm  gonna put you just and uh it's not the only place   actually in calpe they'll also have celebrations  right now um in viajoyosa in near alicante as well   there's a lot a lot of places small villages  that offer traditional spanish celebrations   with music with a lot of different entertainment  for families with children and adults as well for   you to enjoy and remember spanish traditions  and if you love to explore this is something   that you might considering on doing during your  holidays here in benidorm if you need some more   information about where we have these different  celebrations let me know here in the comments i'm   going to put you a few links where you can find  all the information in english all the time tables   how to get there what is going to be happening  during these days you know so that you would be   fully informed also there was one person who  asked me on instagram if you're looking hi um   she asked me on instagram how to get to uh fonz  del algar or guadaleste area uh basically to go   to these algar waterfalls that are near guadeless  which is a lovely spectacular place we will   be visiting it shortly by the way here on the  channel um so subscribe if you still did not do   so to not to miss anything uh and this is one of  the main touristic attractions natural touristic   attractions here in the zone there is a bus number  18 that goes through the whole mediterranean   avenue up until the rincon deloitte which is  ametla del mar avenue through all rincon de leuch   it goes the best stop at rincon the lodge will  be to take it right near the hotel nereo remember   that hotel nereo from survey group you take this  bus early in the morning it goes only once a day   so it's important uh take it approximately  at 10.05 there is a specific website for   bennydome's bus timetables i'm going to put  your link here in the comment down below as well   and this bus starts at 9 55 at the end of benidorm  then it goes through all benidorm through the   rink on the lodge and then goes up towards uh  the phones de lagarde where's the waterfalls   and it will take you around one hour to get there  but you will able to we will be able to enjoy the   nature of spain nature of our area gasp around  make some pictures enjoy the views from the   bus and this bus comes only once a day and  it returns only once a day at a specific time   so ask the driver when uh he will be there  to pick the people up so that you wouldn't   miss the bus obviously you can take a taxi if you  want to but it's going to be quite expensive from   there because it's quite a 20-25 minutes ride  approximately depending where you need to go in   benidorm so remember bus number 18 goes only  once a day back and then in the evening it goes   backwards to benidorm and there's also another  bus that goes to guadalest old village with   a amazing gorgeous old castle on the top  and quite a few museums for you to explore   a lot of people visited and it's definitely  recommended you can actually get some excursions   for you to be picked up at your hotel for example  i think around town travel do offer these and like   some of the other um guided tour agencies offer  that but if you want to go by yourself and explore   uh the bus number 18 might be ideal for you and  there's another one uh that is going directly   to guadalest i'll put you the links here down  below so you could check the timetables and   if you click on the bus stop where you  will be waiting you'll see the exact time   when the bus will be passing through that bus stop  obviously a ticket prices are slightly higher up   than they are for a normal regular bus which is  one euro 55 cents but it's definitely worth the   while and now let's talk about the weather right  now kind of seems it gotten way better there's   just a little bit of sense of smoke in the air  and some ashes in here still a little bit of them   in the air but it's not as hard as it was we  couldn't even see the mountain this morning so   it is getting better the wind probably has  changed the direction which is why we don't   feel as much of it anymore uh today in spain we  will have some clouds but they're not as strong   as they were in previous days uh however by  um wednesday it's gonna be raining in the vast   like north part of spain you can see it here on  the map uh here it might even be raining just   a tiny bit but we'll see with high temperatures as  we have right now even if it's going to be raining   just a few drops will come out the rest  of it will just evaporate in the air   and will not reach the ground probably starting  from friday it's going to be sunny back again   in whole spain with just a few tiny tiny  exceptions uh the fifth wave of heat is going   out the worst part was during this weekend those  of you who came on weekend on saturday let us know   how you felt about it because we've had like 40  degrees here and it was just crazy temperature   the streets were not as busy as they normally  are obviously due to extreme heat that we've had   but a lot of people were staying indoors  with the reduced but still air conditioning   only mediterranean area right now as you can see  on the map will have these high temperatures the   rest of spain will have 29 30 degrees 27 23 which  is uh the perfect temperature for me however sadly   here we won't have it at least for now here we  will have around 35 degrees today the same in   alicante in barcelona 30 granada 35 more or less  in malaga uh we'll have also 32 murthy 38 balaric   islands 36 to 40 there's going to be like a part  of a heat wave still pending in balance islands   canary in 25 to 29 that's like ideal weather  valencia 31 today and the water
