Planning for trips closer to home this summer?

Some of us are “lucky enough” to live in areas of outstanding natural beauty close to all the holiday amenities anyone could ever need. (I like the word “lucky”… Seems the “harder” I “work” the “luckier” I get!) 🙂

Looking to the future as this coronavirus thing starts to settle down I guess that anyone in the holiday/tourism industry must now see that international tourism is finished for 2020 and probably won’t get started properly again untill the end of 2021 or even as far away as 2022.

But that doesn’t mean that we all roll over and cry ourselves to sleep! No matter where you live in the world, within a hundred kilometres there must be something of Interest? I mean, If you live in Málaga or Marbella then Ronda is easily within reach for a weekend visit yes?

In my opinion its up to us small businesses, local guides, hotels and other tourist related outfits to focus our advertising efforts towards local clients. (As I have always preached!) After all, a great part of the global economy does depend on tourism and local tourism could help to get us out of this coronavirus mess we seem to have found ourselves in.

And if you can get to Ronda then, of course Grazalema as well… You could visit the botanical gardens in the village of El Bosque for example…

What about a weekend getaway somewhere in the Sierra de Grazalema?
