Most people try and break up the long winter with either a skiing holiday to Europe, or by escaping to somewhere a bit warmer and sunnier for a mid-winter vacation. As I was queuing for the bag drop counters at Gatwick Airport, surrounded by excited groups of people wrapped in huge coats and carrying enormous piles of luggage, I was feeling a little smug that my chosen destination this winter was Puerto Rico. It’s a solid eight-hour flight from London to Puerto Rico, so you need to be looking at staying for at least a week to make the journey worthwhile. I flew with Norwegian Airlines – a direct flight that was simple and efficient in typical Nordic style.
