Further to the query the other day about Norwegian Air. We have received this from Marianne. Thanks Marianne.

"We always fly Norwegian from Stockholm direct to Malaga and it is working fine. I was surprised to see how cheap it is from Gatwick... From Stockholm we usually pay between 80-150 euros or more one way!!"

One of our readers, Jules, has booked a Norwegian Air flight from Gatwick to Malaga for October 2014. The one-way cost was only 10 pounds.

Jules was wondering whether any of our readers has had any experience of flying with Norwegian Ai. If yes, do you have any views on this airline?

Almerimar bus timetable 2014

A couple of days ago someone asked me about the buses between Almerimar and El Ejido. By chance I had to use one of the buses yesterday and it had a new timetable for 2014 on the window (see above).

Until now I had never known the route the bus takes so I stayed on the bus for a bit.

As you can see from above the buses run between every 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours ish depending on the day and time of day. So not a very frequent service. Cost was 1.33 euros.
