A few weeks ago I noticed that Ryanair had a sale on. It was the usual headline grabbing, low prices but when you drilled down a bit you unearthed a mixed bag of weird dates and flight times. However I stumbled on some cheap flights to Marseilles, £25 return leaving on Friday and return on Monday. Ibis (budget hotel chain) also had an offer on and parking at Stansted was affordable so Lea and I decided so go away for another mini break. When we split the costs of the flights, parking at Stansted and three nights in a hotel, it only came to £88 each so a bargin.

We weren’t overly impressed with Marseilles itself but it was still a nice weekend away and we managed to get a few decent pictures.
Time for another box.net embedded widget, from when the Mitchell family drove from Vancouver to Calgary in an RV back in September.
Ah time to test how well the embedded box.net galley widget works…
So Lea and I went to Edinburgh for two night and then to Glasgow for another two nights. As well as browsing around each respective city – both looked pretty with lots of Christmas lights and Edinburgh had a pretty decent Christmas fair.
We went for a nice walk to Arthur’s seat Edinburgh.
