Flying the Easy Way

Breakfast in Dublin then. No delays on EUjet which was a smooth a piece of travel as anyone could ask for. I arrived at Manston airport sixty minutes before the flight, was checked in within another five minutes and the aircraft left right on time, arriving in Dublin at 08:25. It then took another hour to reach the hotel, longer, as I pointed out to my taxi driver than the flight from Kent. He commiserated, "It's all the cheap money", he told me, "everyone is buying cars and now they can't get anywhere with them."

"I know what you mean", I replied. "You'll have a congestion charge before you know it." Posted by Hello

Dublin has changed in five years, a European success story but I can't quite work out where Ireland makes the money to support all these new signs of prosperity. Guiness exports maybe?

Sunset at Whistable

A trawler making it's way back into Whitstable at sunset this afternoon. Having towed a banner for the London Erotica show for four hours around all the South-east's major shopping centres and towns, all the way up the Thames to Canary Wharf, we worked our way home via Ashford, Dover, Ramsgate, Margate and then Herne Bay and Whistable, landing at Maypole just as the Sun went down.

You can't have missed us -Surely?

Off to Dublin tomorrow at 7AM to chair an NHS conference but on EU Jet this time. Posted by Hello
