FinnAir (AY81): Helsinki to Singapore

I had not been to Finland, or Helsinki Airport before, and I didn’t count this as visiting Finland as I was not leaving the transit area of the airport. Helsinki Airport is a little bit odd. First of all, it is very small, and I noticed that as we were taxiing to our stand that […]

Flying with FinnAir – Business class from London Heathrow to Helsinki and on to Singapore (AY840)

I’m not a travel snob (well I don’t think I am), and I will travel from any point A to amy point B by whatever means possible, however, when you have a flight booked for you, and you are told it is business class, you do have certain expectations. Currently I am on FinnAir AY840 […]

By on July 5, 2015 in UK with 0 Comments

Full House, Chinese Restaurant (well, really it is a take-away, or what I would call a ‘chippy’), is located at 10 Friday Street, Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 1AH, United Kingdom, and it is your standard small town chippy, and it does great chips. During the Henley Royal Regatta (HRR) the town of Henley-on-Thames has […]
