It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas! Yes, it’s still six weeks away, but the shopping centres are certainly already in full swing when it comes to the merry and oh-so jolly spirit. Carols are filling the air, decorations galore and festive paraphernalia everywhere you turn. You can’t escape it, so you might as well embrace it! Here’s what you can get up to this week.
Which stunning destinations have made your 2020 to-do list? Not too sure yet? Trafalgar places the spotlight on spectacular Spain, its gorgeous highlights and experiences, and why it should be on your travel list next year.
Subtraction gives you more. The Mazda CX-5’s SKYACTIV Technology is refined for the ideal drive and comfort, but they’ve kept essentials such as Lane Departure Warning, Driver Attention Alert and Adaptive LED Headlamps. Blind Spot Monitoring means safe, confident lane changes and the Head-up Display keeps you informed and your eyes on the road. Book a test drive.
