Traveling during the holidays
You may be going home for the holidays. You may be taking a plane.
Look at all the planes flying on a single day.
It's almost vacation time and everyone is making plans.
If your family is here in Madrid, maybe you're the COOK this year and the whole tribe is going to descend upon your house for a big holiday meal or for a week of partying and fun.
For some families one day is enough. Too much time with your aunts and uncles, cousins and in-laws leads to conflict.
Maybe you're going to visit your grandparents. You're going to drive or take the bus because they are only 20 or 30 or 300 kilometers away. You're already worrying about the snow on the roads. Booking a seat on the train might be a good idea. Or are you going skiing? You WANT to see lots of snow.
Most of you will be going "home" for the holidays, wherever "home" may be: Galicia or the Canary Islands, Malaga or Mallorca. The foreign students may have decided to travel around Spain or visit other countries. Or they may be so homesick that they've decided to go back to Germany or France, Poland or Cyprus, Brazil or Peru or Costa Rica. "Home" is so far away, but "home" is "home" and you don't want to miss the traditional celebrations, the caroling around the "Tannenbaum" in the square in Austria, the "Posadas" in Mexico.
Yes, many people will be traveling during the holidays. And you may be one of them. Check out the Air Traffic Patterns.
