Tuesday List

We’re keen for these things today:

1. Northern Spain. Ben West’s piece in this past weekend’s FT on real estate from La Coruña to San Sebastian has us thinking about Galicia, Cantabria, Asturias, and the Basque region—as travelers always in search of good value, mind you, not as prospective property owners.

2. Clickair‘s Malta-Barcelona route, which makes the low-cost dream of hopping across the Med one segment closer to reality.

4. Gridskipper’s guide to Almaty.

5. Air Berlin’s new uniforms, designed by Jette Joop and set for June release. And you thought skinny belts were about to disappear…
