Ryan Air & the Palma Vikings


On the Ryan Air flight back from Palma last night I was corporately robbed of £2.80 for a bottle of water that usually retails for about £0.75p max. Other than that I have no complaints about Ryan Air.

Palma itself is hideous; hordes of shouty, heavily tattooed British men and inappropriately dressed, fat, badly sunburned British girls - also heavily tattooed. The Brits have become the new Vikings.

The other side was acres of glitzy, bejewelled, conspicuous consumption in the marinas. Lots of rich, fat blokes with skinny, orange women half their age.

I guess there must be nice parts of the Island where the locals live, but unfortunately I didn't get to see them.
