Wish we had these kind of deals from Ireland!
I have always envied the British the amazingly cheap prices they can access for world travel – Britain is an island just like Ireland so I have never been able to figure out why it is so much more expensive for us to leave our island!! Aer Lingus and Ryan Air run connecting flights to Britain but why do they never seem to get to Britain in time for the Irish to catch these deals? It seems every time I check a cheap international flight on the net from Britain that I can’t get there in time to catch the flight and would have to stay overnight – not fair!! 🙁
