All roads lead to… Rome or Barcelona?

If you are on holidays and have any plan to rent a car and drive in Spain this weekend, I would say, “Don’t go now, postpone it till next weekend”.

Because you know, 31 of August, and it’s Friday, I mean it’s a “Operación Salida”

(Return Rush). Everybody comes home, oh sweet home, from summer holidays.

If you can’t  to avoid to drive highways this weekend in Spain, and to know how is the traffic, you can check by the following website:  Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT) and choose the section “Estado de la circulación”  (means “traffic situation”). 

And also you can check the roads under construction and where exactly it is by map from this site: eTraffic

I know, the traditional way to get the traffic information is the radio Nacional de España  they have various channels

Radio 1 and Radio 5 “Todo Noticias”  by regional and local stations, though they speak so fast and difficult to catch…

You can use the podcast service as well.

I may sound like I’m repeating myself, but I don’t recommend to drive this weekend in Spain, if possible, you may change the travel plan and visit and stay one more night at Barcelona Apartments and move next week when there will be the less traffic and you would enjoy the beautiful scenary in Spain as much as you want.
