I was delighted to find return flights to Oviedo in Asturias for £40 return in May. It didn’t take long to make a decision about that. I have been to Northern Spain before to Galicia, Cantabria and the Basque Country.
A hat-trick of visits to Spain will be completed when I fly to Girona in Catalonia in July. I have been to Girona before but only on the way to Barcelona so this time I will be be more courteous and spend a little more time there as well as visiting the Costa Brava and Figueres
Another decision is made already and late in the summer flights are booked for Bari in Southern Italy. I couldn’t resist this one, Puglia is somewhere that I have always wanted to go and the return flight was only £70. The next job is to plan an itinerary which takes me around the heel of Italy.
