Here's a rather wonderful shot that I took on the way home from Malta on Sunday. Two thirds the way up the picture there's a pointy white thing. It's not a cloud but a view of Mount Etna as we flew over Sicily! I got quite excited.
My Ryanair flight back was absolutely fine considering I paid just over twenty five pounds for it. Actually that went up to thirty four after I opted to move my random seat allocation from the middle to a window seat. I wanted an unfettered kip without having someone rousing me to climb out and go to the loo. I decided that £9 was a small price to pay for three and a half hours of peace. The flight was full and my cabin bag was whipped away from me at the gate. However to get to the exit of the airport everyone had to pass the carousels when they had luggage in the hold or not. My bag was just passing by after I'd cleared passport control. I'd been saved the bother of carrying it!
Writing this post I'm reminded that I like to pay to offset the carbon dioxide generated by my flights this year. I forgot to do it when Lou and I went to Granada in February. I've just been to the calculator at the ClimateCare website. If you put in the departure and destination airports it does the job for you. Fifteen pound should do it for both of our holidays.
