Unveiling a list of 40 travel trends and tips for the coming year, the Times reports that eco-friendly travellers are likely to take a train to Spain for their Spanish holiday in order to attend the Expo Zaragoza 2008.
According to the Times, the event is running from June 14th until September 14th and has a water and sustainable development theme.
Zaragoza was elected to host the 2008 international exposition in Paris on December 16th 2004, beating fellow candidates Thessaloniki in Greece and Italy's Trieste.
The event promises to be especially spectacular as it coincides with the two hundred year anniversary of the Siege of Zaragoza in 1808 as well as the centennial celebration of the Hispano-French Exposition of 1908.
