Spain from the air

I recently spent a week in north-east Spain flying my little plane around Catalonia, Aragon and Navarre. I was blown away by the beauty, wildness, emptiness and variety of the landscape. I had only known the coasts and the Pyrenees before and I hadn’t appreciated how, relative to the rest of Europe, industry and war have made little impact on its medieval cities. I can’t wait to go back.
