Flying Ryanair from Cologne and B&B in Exeter

We flew with Ryanair from Cologne to Bristol, and traveled via bus and train to Exeter to visit our daughter at university for a few days.

We drove from Frankfurt to Cologne to fly with Ryanair from the Konrad Adenauer Airport. It was worth a try, but I really doubt we would do it again. It was Sunday, the airport seemed to be understaffed, and lines were long, with just one security check open, one passport control open, etc. I should not have expected any friendly faces either – there were none. It was the second day after they had gone on strike. You get what you pay for. That should sum it up.

On the train ride from Bristol to Exeter, we saw many sheep, rolling hills, and  beautiful landscapes between the towns.

We had booked a B&B accommodation on Blackall Road to be in walking distance to our daughter’s abode. ‘The Raffles’ B&B made for an excellent location. I took this photo mainly for the South-African yucca in full bloom. In England.

I really enjoyed their garden area, especially with our two offspring visiting later in the day. The spacious seating area was perfect for our get-together.

This B&B is very popular. It’s also the home of a black Labrador puppy with a toy elephant. Richard, the host, is an interesting person. You don’t even have to mention politics to get him started. 🙂
