Holiday bargain alert!!

Last night we booked a mini-break. We're off to Stockholm for 6 days. Flying Club Europe with BA, 5 nights in the Sheraton and it's costing us £192. Spend to save.

We had booked into the Sheraton SoHo in New York and I was on the point of confirming Club World BA flights until I found out the tax and airport charges to fly BA0001 was going to be approx £850. Whilst nothing pleases me more than the thought of flying 8 hours in BA business class, with a bed, £850 doesn't fit in with our age of austerity theme for 2011.

So then we looked at a map to see where we could go. I couldn't get flights to Las Vegas. BA (even on BA Club World) was too far for a mini-break. Istanbul had no availability. So we settled on Stockholm.

In keeping with the age of austerity I'll be buying my booze at the airport to take with me.

I LOVED Stockholm! The viking ship they have preserved is the coolest! And the Royal Mews with all the ancient carriages! Such a beautiful, clean, friendly city!

Welcome to my city, hope you'll enjoy your stay. Don't miss visit the Wasa museum located at Djurgården, an exposition of epic failure LOL
