Another ryanair effort

Ryanair seems to specialise in flyng to airports you never knew you wanted to go to until you saw the price.

But here at last an airport near a place I' ve actually heard of before.

On the other hand I'm not sure if the Ryanair staff at Stansted had heard of it as it was shown at the check in desks as "Nines" and "Neims", both of which were new to me !

    "a lawyer lurking at the foot of every staircase" -- yes, I can well imagine. And thanks for describing the "vertical integration" at the Perrier plant. I even drink Perrier sometimes because I like their advertising. -- See you in Karlsruhe!

    Excellent page, both fun to read and informative. I enjoyed the potted history of the arena. You've made my mouth water too with the cheeses tip and the homemade Creme Brulee

    A quite nice way to describe us aging women and hotels.

    This was so much fun to read. Your analogies are hysterical. The unisex toilets was the best. Thanks for entertaining and educating all at the same time.
