    My New Year’s resolution was to explore more of Spain! I’ve promised myself a weekend or a few days asay every month this year. I’ve dived head first into the world of Airbnb so I get to stay in lovely city centre flats with nice Spanish people, or in rural cortijos, or beachside villas, for just a few euros (AND practise my Spanish sith them!).
