I love to search for holiday bargains and the other day I found a great bargain indeed! It is bel ragazzo's birthday in June and we love to travel so I was looking on Ryan Air to see if I could book us some cheap tickets. Now when I say cheap I mean cheap. I am the type of girl who likes to find the 1 euro cent ticket. Yes you heard correct. 1 cent tickets!
Two years ago we flew from Rome to London for one night as we found return tickets for 30 euro each. (Some people may think I am strange, but I think why the hell not go to London for a night if it is 30 euro for a return ticket. When I lived in London with my friends years back we all flew to Dublin...for lunch! We came back that same day.) A few days ago I topped my old bargain and booked us 2 tickets to Barcelona! for 27 euros each: return, taxes all included, no catch, nothing...this price even includes the fee for using my credit card online.
The only problem was that I wanted this trip to be a surprise, but I am so very bad at keeping surprises that I give the surprise away without realising (well subconsciously I must be telling myself to give away the surprise.)
The other night after deciding to book the flights I was sitting on the couch and my new colleague/housemate was across from me, so I told him that I wanted to surprise bel ragazzo with a trip to Barcelona for his birthday....I then felt a kiss on my cheek as I realised bel ragazzo was sitting besides me! See....I really am bad at keeping a surprise a secret.
