Also trawling the net, for cheap getaways, for a few days, in Switzerland, Austria or Barcelona or anywhere really!!!!
Plus, “still” compiling a list of places to visit and places to stay (overnight) for my review of Carmarthenshire, for DHI. http://www.disabledholidayinfo.org.uk/
Yesterday, the car (Ford Fusion) had its MOT and visual check, before our Motability change over, next Thursday (29th), to a Volkswagen Touran. Hopefully it is big enough to get Loamie and Stormie (wheelchairs) in at the same time, on a couple of occasions we have gone out with one chair, and “wished” we had brought the other one, so we can take both with us, in the future.
Jason (nephew) came out of hospital on Monday, the swelling has reduced considerably, he goes in to remove the stitches (21), on Thursday, I will go with him, for support.
Forgot say, on the Saturday, before the holiday, I went to the “DESTINATIONS and TRAVEL” show in the NEC, Birmingham. As they say “see the World in One Day” it was very informative, very interesting. Even met Ken Hames, from BBC Beyond Boundaries and Mission Africa. We had a brief chat, he explained that he was departing for Filming of Beyond Boundaries, in Nicaragua.
Should of said before, Malaga airport “a nightmare”
IT is very, very big, then big again and very busy
(they is construction work going on, to double the size)
On the flight over, two flights came in, and they mixed the luggage up and put them on any carrousel.
On our departure (to the UK) it was TOTAL chaos, the screens showed our flight delayed, for an hour, the plane had landed 20 minutes early !!!! told the gate of boarding, it boarded from a different gate (changed at last minute). We were allocated seats right at the rear end of the plane, as where other mobility impaired people, as the flight was only half full the airplane staff had to rearrange the seating, so we were nearer the front of the plane, where it was easier for us to access the toilets and the exits.
