2020 is a pretty dismal year. Looking at my trip I planned to head back to Israel is to be shelved for another year.
Instead, I looked to do something different to use some of my leave from work instead of spending the time indoors.
I’ve never been to Italy. Reason being is this, I’m a single chap, and I’ve been reserving a trip to there for the time when I have someone to bring along with me. Right now, I thought about making the goal of this trip seeing San Marino by leveraging a cheap flight to Italy.
With no one making much plans for holidays, I snagged this bargain deal. Yes, this is return including taxes.
Ryanair do these low prices as kind of loss-leaders. Its this cheap as there is no luggage, not even carryon.
Bringing a typical cabin bag with you as another cost. So I just brought backpack which has to fit under a seat for this kind of deal. Ryanair then try and upsell you ability to chose a specific seat, as otherwise if you are couple, family or group, you will be sat in randomly allocated seats, and it costs more to specifically choose where you want to me. Then of course there is, the meal, insurance, car hire, hotel, and other things which all of I declined.
Bologna is old, rustic and charming. Rimini is a bit closer, but there were no flights going from any of the London airports when I looked. Bologna is a straight line as far as as a train to Rimini which is good though.
