I should like to say a big thank you to the wonderful Spanish people of Gijon that helped to make our holiday in this wonderful city such a memorable one.
To the spanish chap we met at Stanstead airport who was so friendly and helpful and the delightful lady that we met at Asturias airport whilst waiting for the bus into Gijon. She gave us restaurant recommendations in Gijon and they were spot on.
To the people that stopped to help us as we were looking at the street map. We were astounded at the willingness of folk that walked up to us and gave a friendly word even though language wasn't at times easy as we were in an essentially non speaking English area.
To the people who took great pride in cleaning the streets of this fabulous city. To the various taxi drivers as we felt totally safe in their hands.
In general the curteousness of the Spanish people. What an amazing country. You are a wonderful example so thank you for a memorable holiday.
Yes we will be back!!
