JULY 2021 NEWSLETTER
Dear Travel Professionals,
As travel restrictions are relaxed and our valued clients look forward to making unforgettable memories, its time for us to get back in the groove… sharing our knowledge, experiences and assisting in bringing those dreams to fruition. Over the past few months we have been gradually updating Sterling Tours Ltd.’s website and reconnecting with all of our trusted local service providers and hoteliers, who are raring to welcome visitors again. Let us start planning!
For up to date entry requirements, it is best to visit the local government offices or tourist boards as this information is changing quite frequently. However the general push is for reopening to vaccinated tourists or those who can provide negative test results. One of the first European nations to open its borders to the US is Spain…
Boasting an incredible diversity from the mountainous border of the Pyrenees to the sun-soaked Costa Del Sol, the southernmost point of Spain lies only 8 miles from Point Cires on the African Continent. About three quarters of the size of Texas, its climate, geography and culture will make you feel as if you have visited multiple countries… many regions still vying for autonomy such as Catalonia and the Basque Country.
Whether you are interested in history, genealogy, architecture, scenery, gastronomy, viticulture, outdoor pursuits, castles, temples, gardens or just relaxing on the beach, Spain has something for everyone! Let us plan your client’s next adventure.
Did you know:
San Sebastian is known in many quarters as the Best Gastronomic Destination in the world… with 18 Michelin Stars located within a 10 minute drive, the most per square meter in Europe!
Paella is considered a national Spanish dish by foreigners, though not to the locals (unless you are from Valencia!)
Spain has 47 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, second only to China and Italy who each have 55!
Olive Oil… no other country produces more, at some 1.5 million tons annually!
Renewable energy… wind turbines are Spain’s greatest source of electricity!
The Spanish love to chill out, the average Spaniard devotes 16 hours per day to leisure including eating, drinking and sleeping!
And last but not least, Spain is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, second only to France… if you have any wish to plan your next vacation to Spain in the coming 18 months, now is the time to make a move. Drop us a line or give us a call and we will be happy to prepare a program that meets your client’s needs and wishes. I hate to say “a once in a lifetime experience” since life is too short for such limitations!
