San Javier Jazz Festival, Auditorio Parque Almansa, San Javier, Murcia, Spain, July 2, 2010 To look almost in the same way as Elvis, to stretch out on the beach with the model Helena Christensen and to be called "cool" from Beavis & Butthead - Chris Isaak made many things correct in his life. His big success came with the ballad "Wicked Game" which was released on his third album. First not available as single the ballad was used by David Lynch for the end scene in his movie "Wild At Heart". Two years later the ballad shooted up to the US- Top Ten and made Chris Isaak to a worldwide known star. The Video in which he is mating with his wife Helena Christensen helped to win great fame and brought in three MTV-Awards. Chris Isaak explored through his whole career in his intensive Songs perennially the good, the bad and the unsightly side of love and clothed this profound knowledge of life into amazing and affecting melodies. His speciality is the perfect balance between the ecstasy of big romances and the pain of a broken heart.

We were unaware of this fact even after picking the car up. We...
...Casa Emilio, Murcia
During our recent summer holidays in Spain we visited a few different cities, the 3rd of these cities was Murcia where we spent one night at Casa Emilio Hotel.
Why Casa Emilio?
We made the decision to stay at Casa Emilio based on two main reasons, the first being that we had been staying in hostels for over a week and so the idea of a hotel with a bit more privacy...
Advantages: Close to centre, clean room, great staff, near great shops, cheap and clean! Disadvantages: no view, alley way smells, people pee in alley way, noisy.
...After reading some very dodgy things about this hotel I made sure that my travel agent booked us a double room with a jacuzi bath (these are the biggest rooms that they have) and that was also away from the lift (hardly ever used to be fair).
The hotel is a tad hard to find (but if you get the airport bus it drops you off at Universitat which is near the hotel). Please make sure that you do...
