Spain celebrates its national holiday this Tuesday. A new October 12 that has led many people to ask for leave this Monday to enjoy a four-day long weekend. While some have taken advantage of this bridge simply to disconnect from work, others have preferred to travel to destinations that have been marked in red for months on their agenda. And it is that, taking into account that it is the first bridge without restrictions due to COVID-19, everything indicates that many have taken advantage of these days of rest to recover the trips that the pandemic took from us.
