New Zealand

New Zealand is renowned for its remarkable scenery from the rugged mountains in the south to the beautiful white sand beaches in the north each corner you turn presents another awe inspiring landscape. Although worth visiting for the scenery alone New Zealand has much more than magnificent landscapes, it is about a vibrant and rich culture, a fantastic range of distinctive hotels, cosmopolitan cities and an appetite and opportunity for adventure! Add to this the renowned and innovative Pacific Rim cuisine and fine wines and you can see why New Zealand is rated as a destination not to be missed.

“Advantages and disadvantages of Ryanair for Tourism in the Girona area”

Every day we are faced with a multitude of views on Ryanair. The most important argument for Ryanair is basically the price. Ryanair is THE cheap flights airline, no doubts about it. Girona’s airport is a hub with flights coming in and leaving from all over Europe. This brings both advantages and disadvantages to the tourism sector in the area.

On advantage is that the low price made a lot of people access to flights, something which once was reserved for a very small number of specific and fortunate people. Those are the customers who can come to Girona, thanks to low cost flights. However, such clients are generally from a lower social status, or young people who let little money in the area.
Moreover, thanks to the establishment of Ryanair in the area of Girona, new infrastructures have been created. But on the other hand we can see that the workers who have contracted the airline in the area have harsh working conditions.
Last but not least, while in 1993 only 275,000 passengers passed through this airport and during 2007 the number has increased significantly to almost 5 million. However this airport serves Barcelona with 81% of the passengers, just 2,1 % of tourists stay there.
In conclusion, in my view, I would remove the exclusivity of the airport to Ryanair. In that way there could be competition with other airlines and this would improve their services and working relationships. The competition would positively affect the development of the area of Girona, and thanks to that new markets to different types of tourists could open in the future. However as the financial situation stands today, I think, unfortunately, that this will not be feasible.

Tú no puedes volver atrás, porque la vida ya te empuja, como un aullido interminable. Hija mía es mejor vivir con la alegría de los hombres que llorar ante el muro ciego. Te sentirás acorralada, te sentirás perdida o sola, tal vez querrás no haber nacido. Yo sé muy bien que te dirán que la vida no tiene objeto, que es un asunto desgraciado. Entonces siempre acuérdate de lo que un día yo escribí, pensando en ti como ahora pienso. La vida es bella, ya verás, como a pesar de los pesares tendrás amigos, tendrás amor. Un hombre solo, una mujer así tomados, de uno en uno son como polvo, no son nada. Pero yo cuando te hablo a ti, cuando te escribo estas palabras, pienso también en otra gente. Tu destino está en los demás, tu futuro es tu propia vida, tu dignidad es la de todos. Otros esperan que resistas, que les ayude tu alegría, tu canción entre sus canciones. Entonces siempre acuérdate de lo que un día yo escribí, pensando en ti como ahora pienso. Nunca te entregues ni te apartes junto al camino, nunca digas no puedo más y aquí me quedo. La vida es bella, tú verás como a pesar de los pesares tendrás amor, tendrás amigos. Por lo demás no hay elección y este mundo tal como es, será todo tu patrimonio. Perdóname, no sé decirte nada más pero tú comprende que yo aún estoy en el camino. Y siempre, siempre acuérdate de lo que un día yo escribí, pensando en ti como ahora pienso.

(José Agustín Goytisolo)
