In recent years, Dutch writer Cees Nooteboom has developed a reputation as a major European author and, in this magical evocation of 1,000 years of Spanish history, this is shown to be more than critical hyperbole. Through his erudition and graceful writing, Nooteboom has produced the definitive work on one of the most over- worked literary pilgrimages of our times, the journey to Santiago de Compostela.The book is never a straightforward journey, but instead distils Nooteboom's lifelong fascination for Spain through some remarkable meditations on life, art, history and religion. There is scarcely a page which is not thought-provoking. The passages on Velazquez and Seville-based artist Zurbarán are wonderful, as are the author's meditations on the paradoxes and discords within Spain, his thoughts on the effects of the barren plains on the Spanish soul and his ruminations on the history of conquest and loss which the country has undergone. Most remarkable of all is Nooteboom's ability to convey the sense that, though time has progressed, it is people, attitudes and customs which have stayed still: "Sometimes it is as if Spain is out to preserve the past for the rest of Europe."Roads to Santiago is a book which everyone with more than passing interest in Spain ought to read. --Toby Green

Advantages: Interesting lava formations Disadvantages: The island has been rather spoiled by human interference
...Santiago Island, Galapagos
Santiago seems to have three names, San Salvador and James island as well as Santiago. The James was after James II, San Salvador was after the second island discovered by Columbus and presumably Santiago is the Spanish name for the island.
Santiago is one of the larger islands in the Galapagos group and is 572 km2 . We only visited a small part of this island known...
Advantages: different unspoiled powder relaxed Disadvantages: mid-priced
...About 2 hours east of Santiago are the ski resorts of La Parva, El Colorado and Valle Nevado. All 3 resorts are connected (you can ski between them if you have the right pass) and there are plenty of runs and some world-class off-piste. You can make the trip up and down from Santiago in a day but its worth taking two (at least) if you can ski or snowboard. As well as the resorts, there is a small...
