Commuting with a twist

"By 2016, there will be 1.5 million people working in the United Kingdom but living overseas, using Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted as commuter terminals - predicts a report from the Future Forum, set up by travel firm Thomson."
Carrie Frais, a television news presenter in London says that other euro-commuters shuttling between Barcelona and London include lawyers, designers and people working in internet-based jobs.
The report includes a list of hotspots likely to be in this international commuter belt - Barcelona, Palma, Marrakech, Dubrovnik, Faro, Alicante, Verona, Tallinn, Pula and Valencia. These are all based on the availabilty of cheap flights and with the premise that experts indicate that house prices are set to rise by 50%.
