We have got back into our routine, we have the memories of the Christmas holidays and few extra pounds on our hips, the cold has crept into our days and January feels very uphill. But … Let’s leave all negative thoughts aside! We would like to encourage you to think ahead and start to think about your next break.
This year in Spain, the national holidays are less than ever at the beginning of the year and some communities will not enjoy a bank holiday until mid-April, when Easter will take place. So, what can be done? Take advantage of those days and enjoy them as you deserve to.
