Ryanair: their middle seat, money making scheme?

There have been a lot of reports in the media about Ryanair splitting up passengers who do not pay for an upgrade. This is my recent experience.

 

I have flown Ryanair many times, and although I am ranting away about them, I will most likely fly with them again. Why? Because they are a budget airline and I am a budget traveller. I like cheap flights to great places. I love a great deal, and if you know how to handle them properly, Ryanair will give you just that . . .cheap flights.
It is only recently I have a noticest something. Previously when I have been travelling with a companion, I always ended up sitting separately. Luckily, as a regular solo traveller, I have never been tempted to upgrade to seats together. I can handle a 3 hour flight alone, but others might not be like me. Imagine how much money Ryanair collects each flight.

Then as I was eating the leftover chocolates from Christmas, it occured to me! I have learnt so much in the past year of travel and there are so many things I want to tell you about. So I have decided to write this post about what travel has taught me giving examples of things that have happened in the last year.

Living Out of a Car and Travelling Europe

For over two months now I have been living out of a car and travelling round Europe.  I bought my Nissan X-trail the day before I drove down to the south of England and boarded a ferry to France. The reason why I bought it? Well, I could lie down fully when the back seats are down meaning I could sleep in my car comfortably.

 

Fast forward just a few days and I had a lovely camping car with curtains and a blow up bed.  This post is all about how I did this and how I am now living out of a car.

I know that there is always a chance that you are going to be robbed when travelling. You might look like an easy target, a foreigner, lost or disorientated in a strange country, it is difficult to stay safe. Well, imagine my surprise when I was running down the road in Berlin after the thief who had just snatched my phone out of my hand (you can read all about it HERE).

It was my third time there, but I needed to move past this shock so that next time I go to Berlin, I can continue to enjoy the relaxed laid back city it is.
