    Your holidays to the EU would still be affordable. Looking forward to visiting costal Spain without drunk British tourists.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Can't you be more specific? Do you mean Catalonia, or Valencia, or one of the other new countries taking shape that will be outside the EU?
