We've slipped officially into Fall. Even with the climate change where mild sunny temperatures persist in the seasonably cold Northern Hemisphere, you will still need a reasonable guarantee that such will be the case if you're looking for a place to vacation in order to escape from post-summer blues. More so because, climate change or not, Fall weather could cause a drastic drop in temperature at a moment's notice. Given all that, it's hard for you to go wrong if you choose Altea for your après-verano  holiday, a picturesque Spanish coastal town that could give Santorini a run for its money.

The rowdy crowd has gone home, you don't have to jostle and jockey for the precious spots on the beaches, the weather is pleasantly warm and bright, there are still  fiestas to go to, and don't forget the discounts and great package deals.

The card is issued for free by their national health insurance provider in the home country.

Spain-Japan relationship is not particularly close as to warrant a shrine to Spanish history, culture and tradition on Japanese soil. There lies the enigma of the Parque España--Shima Spain Village in the Mie Prefecture, a sprawling fun shrine that has been attracting local tourists for three decades now. A Land of Don Quixote that smacks delightfully of genuineness.

“'The Madrid of the Future'” is a subject which I prefer not to contemplate until I have lowered several stiff slugs of coñac. As the oldest surviving foreign resident in the Spanish capital, I´ve seen some horrific changes here, man, boy and fossil. When I first arrived, the wheel hasn't been invented yet but come 2001 and the whole peninsula will be undermined by 100 layers of underground car parks. The Moorish tourists demanded hot and cold running fountains, and the good old Las Ventas Plaza de Toros is slated to become the Monumental Platillo Volante de Toros. . . "

To state the obvious, the international mobility of people and goods has been severely impacted by pandemic restrictions. But while international travel restrictions have helped delay or reduce the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to some degree, they have caused societal and economic disruption and impacted untold number of lives. The resumption of safe international travel is an important step toward normality.

If you are not careful, you’ll miss spring in Spain altogether and spend most of your life wondering how you did it. It’s not hard, because the meteorological border is pretty indefinite; one day it is a dull, cold, rainy winter day and POW… suddenly it’s summer. There are ways to catch it though, and it all depends on how much attention you pay and where you are in the very changeable land of Spain.

TWA Layovers: Del Hotel Plaza al Cielo

During my thirty years as a TWA flight attendant, I spent many a layover at the Hotel Plaza. Whether coming off a new Boeing 707 in the sixties, the whale-sized 747 in the eighties or a sleek 767 in the nineties, the Plaza was my home away from home. The hotel was nestled inside the Edificio España, wrapped in a cozy cocoon of cafeterias, bars, restaurants and watering holes that catered to all tastes. There always seemed to be fruit floating in the water of the pool in the top floor from someone's sangria. And once in a while, a naked Maja was seen running across the balcony chased by a Don Juan Tenorio.
