la escondida hotel, penáguila

Shooting La Escondida hotel in Penáguila, Spain, right before it opened was fun. Yvette and Terry Venables are fantastically hands on with their little hotel, and the pre-opening adventures were decidedly memorable. It was a good place to wake up on my birthday.

On the way home, I sat beside a bloke reading Terry’s “Venables Verdict” column on the previous night’s England match, which I’d partially made possible by hooking up an iPad with a stream so we could tune in. My Tottenham-fan dad was very proud.
