Glad to see you back on line Rick,
the insanely low prices of travel here are NOT sustainable, it's all part of a con to make the european union's 'unrestricted travel theory' look good. One example: aircraft do not pay any tax on their fuel, so it's cheaper to fly than to drive your own car, or take the train, utterly illogical ! The bill always catches up though, just look at Ryan Air and Air Berlin, both built on quick-sand and on their way out. A big holiday company in the UK also went bust recently. It's obvious, you can't sell anything for less than what it costs to create. Once THEY have the monopoly though the prices will rocket, mark my words.
The EU are determined to make Brexit a failure because WHEN the UK leaves the EU, the EU is broke ! They, the EU, plan their budget years in advance and have already committed the UK's membership fees for years to come and when they (the uk's contributions) ain't there ... oop's.
There is no way around a hard Brexit anymore because the EU are fighting for their lives and can not back-peddle. Just look at how they are reacting to Catalonia wanting independance
. Democracy is only good as long as you do what THEY say, disagree and THEY are as bad as any other bastards in history. Just look at the US democratic party, squealing like a stuck pig instead of realizing that 'they had their heads firmly up their own arses' and that's why they lost ... are you listening Europe ???
You take care in Barcelona, by next spring, it could be hotter there than down under
