Here is a link to a site about Lithuania - I think that I went to college (many years ago) with someone whose father came from there. Use this link to find out more about it.

Rosalia de Castro

Rosalia de Castro was a famous Spanish poet from Galicia who had an extraordinary life and whose work remains popular to this day. There is a museum in the town of Padron that is dedicated to her and which uses the house in which she lived for the displays etc.

If you want to know more about her you can check out this page, at the bottom of which you will find a link that goes to a separate site about her. That site has translations of her poetry and information about her life and works.

The weather in Galicia has been mixed of late, but with many dull and cloudy days, so the last month has not been a time to vacation there.

Flights to Galicia

I have posted very little on this blog over the last 2 to 3 months, mainly because time has not permitted. But in addition to that I have had little in the way of useful or interesting information to post.

At present I am waiting to see how things pan out with the new Ryanair hub at Leeds Bradford airport.

At present there is no sign of a flight schedule to anywhere in Galicia, but with the termination of the Liverpool flight last October, and the rapid demise of the east midlands route a year earlier, it would seem a possibility that Ryanair might be looking at Leeds Bradford to either Santiago de Compostela or la Coruna airport at some time in the future.

In any event there is no news as yet, however more new flights are promised. My guess would be that any route taking in Galicia from this airport would be announced this side of 2010 to give ticket sales a chance. That said, it looks unlikely for the foreseeable future.

If any "flight" news appears I will post it here.
