This was our first and hopefully last experience of RyanAir, uncomfortable is an understatement and you now actually get played adverts over the loud speaker as you're in the air. It really is worrying trusting your life to an airline who are so desperate for your money and appear to cut every corner imaginable.
Too tired from the 30 hours straight of being awake to do much, we have just been for a wander around the historic old town with a visit to a couple of pubs and a couple of microbreweries. No ale, but the quality and the price (Euro/pint) makes up for it. Lager here is classified by degrees, which measure how light/pale it is, 10 being the lightest and as far as we have seen 16 is the darkest.
A few photos of our first day.
