The first leaves this Sunday and includes visits to Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford and London. We return on Saturday. The second itinerary departs from Playing cards On match day. We flew early, at eight, and then back home. All for 400 euros. And the third itinerary travels from Alicante, since in the area we have our subsidiary of the Great Family in Hellín and Ubeda.

Lohan’s rehab: ‘It was great’

first_imgLindsay Lohan said she felt safe being in rehab earlier this year, but she doesn’t consider herself an addict. The 20-year-old actress told Allure Magazine during an interview that appears in its May issue that she decided to enter the secluded Wonderland Center, an addiction treatment facility, at the suggestion of her therapist. “It’s so weird that I went to rehab. I always said I would die before I went to rehab,” Lohan said. Her room was “all white, with a parquet, and it was different! I just felt safe,” Lohan said. “I thought, I’m going to stay here tonight. And I stayed there. For a month. It was great,” she said. Lohan said in January that she had checked into the center. Her publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, confirmed in December that Lohan was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Still, the star of “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday” told Allure, “I don’t know that I’m necessarily an addict.” – Associated Press 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
