    Hi Mireia! Just wanted to know if you have ever traveled with Wizz Air? I know there is a flight from Bari, Italy to Prague, Czech Republic, and since I’m often in Bari and would like to go on weekend trip to Prague, I’d like to know if Wizz Air is a good airline company and what do you think of its service? Thanks & Cheers from Milan (where it’s snowing so much…)!

    Hi Marion!
    I haven’t travelled with Wizz Air yet, but I surely will as they offer some destinations I’d like to visit. However, some of my friends did travel with this low-cost airline company last year and they were so satisfied: the flight was on-time and the rates were very convenient.
    Hope everything is ok in Milan! :) Enjoy the snow!!

    Cheers from rainy Rome…

    Hola Mireia,

    I just wondered if you could include the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata Nijar in Almeria (Spain), since it features some of the most beautiful, unspoilt and off the beaten track beaches in Europe. You can take a virtual tour here:
