We are off to Barcelona for a long weekend. The trip was a little ill conceived. We saw round trip airfare from Paris to Barcelona for 50 euros each from a discount airline. In our excitement we booked them immediately. As it turns out “Paris to Barcelona” are kind of loose terms- the flight is actually from Beauvais to Girona, each 1 ½ hours from either advertised city. Still at that price it’s hard to complain. Unfortunately the metro strike hit and there is a possibility of an air traffic controller strike. So it’s a little unclear if we will actually make it to Barcelona- we also planned our departure to be the earliest of the day which makes it next to impossible to actually get there in time so we have to rent a hotel room. Again, that’s ok- we are learning the hard way but it will be a lesson learned.
I spent most of yesterday figuring out transportation to and from the airports, hotel reservations etc. I was struck by a notice on the airlines webpage.
“Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, today (15th Nov) unveiled 2008’s hottest calendar, as Ryanair’s cabin crew strip down to their bare essentials…
Ryanair’s gorgeous cabin crew are raising the cabin temperature with 2008’s hottest calendar.”
Our crew are strippers???? I better wear shorts ‘cause it’s gonna get hot in that cabin.
Please God, let us live.
I wont have access to the internet so I will be taking a small break from blogging.
