Editor’s Comment December
Where has 2011 gone…? I can’t believe a year has passed since we sent out our first newsletter, and looking back the months have simply flown by. No sooner were we getting over a chilly winter, then spring was upon us followed by the frenetic months of summer as businesses tried to make hay while the sun shone, almost literally. The wonderfully mild and sunny autumn well into November gave a false sense of security that Christmas must be weeks away, but here it is suddenly upon us…!
So, if you need any last minute presents for Christmas and Reyes or something to brighten up your New Year’s Eve outfit, there’s a new shop opening this week in Calle del Angel in the centre of Maó called ‘Bangels’. Promising to offer all sorts of stylish fashion accessories for every occasion, be sure to check it out when you are next in town.
As we look to 2012, there are high hopes that the new Partido Popular government will put tourism high on the agenda in an effort to promote the many cultural, sporting and gastronomic attractions Menorca can offer outside the traditional summer holiday period, many of which potential visitors simply do not know about. There is no reason why Menorca cannot sustain a buoyant tourist season from April until the end of October as many of our articles prove.
In the issue, we bring you details about the elections, the World Travel Market (good news for Menorca) and the latest from our Honorary British Consul and R & R Menorca, as well as some general information about Christmas in Menorca, past and present, for those who have never visited the island at this time of year.
Until next year, have a very happy Christmas, enjoy Reyes and best wishes for 2012 from all at Menorca-Live.
