One of the best things to come out of the ‘naughties’ or whatever the last decade was called is the arrival of cheap flights around Europe. It has opened up the continent in a way or grandparents could have only dreamed. In yesteryear it was exciting to go on holiday to France, after many hours on a coach and taking a Ferrry. Now with the arrival of Ryan air, it is possible to go to Prague, Poland or the South of Span for little more that it would cost to go on the London tube ( no joke ).
Whatever you think about low cost airlines the fact remains the price savings are unbelievable. Thinks about it. How is it really possible to fly in a aero plane at a cost lower than a train ticket?
Now, depending who you ask, this is not necessarily a good thing. Travel was once the preserve of the upper classes. Some are not at all interested in having a holiday next to the ‘riff raff’. Places notorious for this are some locations in Spain which are having for working class Brits. More middle class Britain go fuehrer east to the Thailand or India for a more exotic location.
