Where's Bill?

Even the likes of a retired journalist such as myself gets to treat himself to the odd holiday now and again. When April showers do their best to remind us that summer is still a good few weeks away, it's time to scour the Ryanair flight schedules and see what bargains they can reveal.

Thankfully, they haven't yet instituted their dreaded 'fat tax', or it would be Easyjet for me, every time.

As a seasoned traveller, I've learned to keep my itinerary under wraps, just in case I'm offered favourable travel conditions or upgrades that might seek to influence my later reviews. Not much chance of that with Ryanair, though. Even getting the cabin crew to smile can be an achievement.

Nevertheless, before I vent my customary spleen on the Irish low-cost carrier, I thought I'd invite readers to have a guess where I've been.

Here are some piccies, to help you along:

You've been to Morcambe for the National Agadoo Dance Championships haven't you?

Bill Blunt said...

Well, you're close, Crofty. And the good readers of Cirencester deserve to know how we enjoy ourselves oop north to stave off 'le crunch credit'...

No no no Crofty, it's the 'Aspiring Spock's' Championships held in Lala Land.

Time for a pizza I think .......

Bit stumped on this one Bill, looks like t'ai chi but Ryanair don't fly anywhere exotic (unless it's t'ai chi in Dublin or Carcassonne)

Bill Blunt said...

Hmm - Fly Chi... the ancient Irish art of relaxation through drinking Guiness at 28,000 feet!

oooo have you gone all modern & movin' wit the times.. like "speak to the hand not the face as the face ain't listening"?

Anyway Bill I am celebrating 2 years today of blogging thanks to you .. ... hopping over here to say thank you for introducing me to this media... [mmm others may not so readily agree lol ]

Bill Blunt said...

Congratulations on your anniversary, 70s! I shall pop across to offer them personally now!

..... and now I'm humming "I'm leaning on a lamp post" - your place is having a very odd affect on me at the moment young Bill ..... oh well

Bill Blunt said...

It's a brave man who accuses Bill Blunt of not recognising a well-placed entendre or two when I see them, DP. Your years as a scriptwriter for 3-2-1 were not wasted ... you win the prize for correctly surmising that my cheapo Ryanair flight was in fact to Pisa.
Well done that man.

I have been one of those people - it's almost irresistible .......
