60 Years ago in the Costa Brava5 Replies
It is 60 years ago since the first package holiday from the UK arrived in Catalunya in the Costa Brava. The cost at the time was £35. This amount was the equivalent of 10 weeks wages to the average worker at the time. This of course was the first package to anywhere in Spain. Remember the song ''We are all off to sunny Spain, to the Costa Brava shore'' How has CB changed since then ? Have any of you memories of the eary day package holidays to CB ? Why was CB chosen as the first destination for these holidays ? How does CB compare to other destinations in Spain or anywhere else in Europe ? How does the value compare now with the old days in CB ? How are holiday makers getting to CB now ? I think that CB is the most beautiful, interesting, best value, best beaches, nicest people, most historic, greatest weather etc. etc. etc. place on God's earth. What do all you other lovers of CB think ?
