    We'll be there tomorrow!

    It was a good question, I remember a few years ago for some reason they ended up 2 hrs ahead of us when we were going over there.

    It was not always so. I do remember when they did not change at the same time as the UK, but my memory is not good enough to say when.

    A couple of years ago we went to Fuertaventura and I told my wife that they were an hour ahead so we duly put our watches on. It took the whole holiday of being first for breakfast and first in the pub. It wasn't until we arrived at the airport an hour early that we twigged! Doh!

    5 of us-I didn't know. We're at Parc Verger at the moment. Being 1 hour ahead at the moment & watching UK TV means I am taking our dog out for a wee quite late & praying he doesn't bark to wake everyone up. 2 hours ahead would have been even worse!
