SUSIE JULY – AUGUST 2015
EUROPE POST HOLIDAY INTERVIEW

1 – WHERE DID YOU GO?
London, Paris, Stavanger, Oslo, Berlin, Venice, Florence, Rome, Positano, Split, various Croatian Islands, Istanbul & Dubai.

2- WHO WITH AND HOW LONG FOR?
My husband , friends in London & Norway, Family & friends in Positano & Croatia

3- WHO DID YOU FLY WITH AND HOW WERE THEY?
Cathay Pacific Business Class from here to London – I really enjoyed the aircraft and the service. Crazy amounts of food & wine… but not complaining.
Air France from Paris to Norway, no complaints as expected.
Norwegian Air Shuttle – no complaints, as expected, quite good for a low cost airline!
Easyjet – Berlin to Venice, we paid for seating, boarding and all the extras and I honestly believe it’s all worth it… ( but I don’t have tolerance for mass amounts of airline travellers……) Honestly couldn’t complain about Easyjet, the hostess was probably the kindest of the whole trip!
Croatian Airlines – no complaints
Turkish Airlines – no complaints, good aircraft & entertainment even for a short flight.
The way home we did Emirates & Qantas business class, no complaints and we had great staff on Qantas 🙂

4- WHAT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT?
Probably Preikestolen in Norway, brilliant hike with breathtaking view at the top! (featured image)
Taking a boat around the caves & beaches of Positano with one crazy captain!
Also really liked Berlin and Istanbul…..

5 – WHAT WAS THE LOWLIGHT?
There are never low lights when travelling the world! Ha! Well nothing really went wrong on our trip, all smooth sailing. The heat was a little too much to handle in some places.

6 – BEST THING YOU ATE?
“Mummas Pasta” at La Tagliata in Monterpertuso, Positano…. O M G !!!

7 – WHERE WOULD YOU GO BACK TO?
Cannot wait to get back to Scandinavia in general, it’s a very beautiful part of the world!

8 – TRAVELLING TIP POST HOLIDAY?
Don’t go to Europe in August unless you are hanging by a beautiful ocean! Italy was having the hottest summer in 12 years so walking around the cities in 38 degree heat isn’t that enjoyable!
Pay for all conveniences you can, skip the line tickets, private transfers, extra luggage, well located hotels & appropriate tours.
