... hope the ones in business stop, not just some likely lad, as seemed to be the case this time – he certainly tried in on in regards of the price, which I agreed before getting in, not knowing the airport was less than 2 miles away. Then he tried to suggest he could meet me in South America as a woman would enjoy her travels much more with a man for company!!
Conviasa came up trumps and got me safely (despite the hideous cheese roll “snack” on the plane) and even ...
