Impressive wedding venue

July 22, 2009

Now I have an absolute love of Concorde.

I’ve often said how much of a shame it is for us to actually go backwards in innovation and technology by retiring her, but I am glad to see at least some of the Concorde’s are being looked after and available to all for a treat.

One of the more accessible Concorde planes is at Manchester airport. This is Concorde G-BOAC.

Here, the airport owners have not only given her a warm safe place to live but also made her easy to view and get into.

The stranger part is that she is actually a registered place to get married. Imagine explaining to your partner that you have booked the wedding venue and they find out it’s in a Concorde!. Well, I would be pleased of course, but I can imagine most people would flip.

Would you be thanked or never forgiven

In its time as one of the world’s most famous aircraft, Concorde G-BOAC played host to a succession of monarchs and presidents. Now it can be yours for the most wonderful day of your life – your wedding day.

Available exclusively at Manchester Airport, the flagship of the Concorde fleet is fully licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, enabling us to hold a very limited number of weddings and civil partnership ceremonies on board each year.

How cool is that.

I only wish I was single again, I cannot even re-new my vows as that was done last year on a cruise ship.

What shall I do now the Thomson Emerald has stopped sailing?

July 21, 2009

As many of my posts before have stated, I was devastated to find that Thomson Cruise had decided to stop chartering the lovely cruise ship, SS The Emerald.

Since the last cruise, which I was glad to be part of, I have been wondering what to do, should I continue to use Thomson Cruise, who indeed did offer a wonderful cruise experience, but had upset me with the removal of the Emerald from the fleet, or should I look elsewhere.

With questions such as these, I decided not to cruise this year but to spend some time in France and contemplate. however, the contemplation has gone, Thomson Cruise have announced that they will be chartering a new ship for a ten year period and naming her the Thomson Dream. At 1,700 passengers she is a little big for me, but hopefully the Thomson managed setup should help me get over this, and who knows, maybe she will become my newly adopted ship.

We shall watch this space.

Have you thought of booking an airport hotel and parking?

July 21, 2009

Have you ever had to rush to the airport at a really anti social time? Whilst sitting in the car travelling towards your airport have you ever thought there must be a more civilised way of doing things?

Well there is. Most UK airports will either have hotels on the airport or just outside. Strangely enough, you will find that they are not always as expensive as you may have thought. For instance, if you were flying from East Midlands at 6am, you may have booked parking for approximately £31. You could in fact get a hotel for £60 including the parking. What’s more, the parking may be of a better quality than the one you had selected as the best option.

Using the Compare Airport Parking site, you can search hundreds of airport car parks to find the best deal that suits you, but did you know that they also show you the cost of upgrading to a hotel with parking? It’s true. What’s more, you can indeed book there and then or search the other hotels available at that airport to see if anything else suited your needs.

Additionally, the Compare website has introduced an interactive holiday checklist to asssit you in preparing for your holiday.

Take a look at the interactive holiday checklist from Compare Airport Parking. On this site you will find a free to use application that you can fill in your holiday details and remind yourself what to pack, what needs planning, the works. Not only that, but if you select the mailing option, it will even email you when time is running short to do some of the outstanding tasks.

Very handy and very useful. Visit the site and have a play
