With a spare day in my calendar I scoured the internet for cheap flights and found such a flight heading over to Jerez.
Foolishly I arrived with no money, trusting instead that the cash machines in the airport would meet my needs but forgetting that small, provincial airports are often very basic. Never mind, the airport is only about 6 miles from Jerez town so I began the walk; after all, I've covered similar distances before on foot with the TA in quick time and whilst carrying a load.
After about a mile walking alongside a dual carriageway a car pulled up and an English bloke asked if I wanted a lift into town. Fine I thought so I hopped. It turned out he is pilot trainer and has been living in Jerez for a number of years. Its amazing who you end up meeting when on your own abroad.
Once into Jerez I thanked him for the lift and proceeded into the centre where the tourist information is and did the usual site seeing and sampling of the local eats.
