Some say it's the finest way of travelling. I say it's the only way of travelling.
Take today as an example. I just happened to be perusing the airBaltic website for cheap flights out of this oily realm. Imagine my surprise when I saw the outbound flight to Riga priced at 20 Euros and the inbound flight priced at 30. It was too good to be true (taxes ended up being almost twice the price of both flights).
Such deals don't come around too often, I concluded. So instead of making sure I could get the necessary two days off, I became impulsive like a recent Canadian lottery winner at a Tim Horton's. Three clicks and a couple of forms later, my itinerary was set.
The destination this time is Estonia. It's about time I checked out the 3rd and final Baltic state. I'll be off May 15th and returning on the 18th.
