Without rules what would we be? French. I love comedian Al Murray, the Pub Landlord.
The thing is that some don’t because they don’t get the joke… the exaggerated flag-waving Little Englander.
And, of course, like many comic creations, Al is very different from his stage act.
He is actually a Second World War buff and Germanophile and has even brought us documentaries on the subject.
And why am I telling you all this?
Because of the bit about rules. I mean it’s Tuesday Cruiseday and Flyday Friday, by rules of the management here!
Until Aer Lingus www.aerlingus.com spring a sale on a Tuesday.
Our national airline carrier is offering up to 20% off destinations across Europe.
Prices start from €39.99 for Bordeaux, Lisbon, Faro, Paris, Milan, Paris, Toulouse and Vienna. Travel between 23 September and 24 October and rise but not by much.
The sale ends Thursday midnight.
These are all good cities I think you’d agree, although Faro is more of a thoroughfare.
One whose airport is a pleasure to rest awhile in and where you bump into the most unlikely of people.
Faro is certainly one place I need to investigate more rather than just jump in the taxi, coach, or hired car.
But if it is your starting point then Aer Lingus offers this package: €297pp with seven nights at the. 4* Estrella do Vau.
Faro was my launchpad for my sports break, a Judy Murray tennis (and dancing) masterclass at The Campus, Quinto da Lago https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/06/12/sportugal/.

I’ll bring you Paris in my new series City delights. Here was my starter: City delights – Dublin.
And work my way through the others, particularly at Aer Lingus prices!
