Try to beat my bargin!

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.

I know Piccola! We are lucky here. Australia is the same as the states with nothing cheap like Ryan Air (well not THAT cheap) said...

Ryan air is great isn't it? I'm heading to Barcelona in a few months.... might have to look for a flight to Roma for lunch:)
