Do I need to quote your previous admission BF whereas you stated that you wished you had taken a direct flight?
So what happens when you meet, and may subsequently marry, a lady from Moscow, SPb, Minsk, Kiev, Lviv, Odessa, Chisinnau or wherever and the both of you need to return there once or twice a year for the rest of your lives? Do you think she will say 'Yes darling, let us take a cheapskate flight to a landing strip in the middle of nowhere and travel the rest of the way by train and/or 'arsehole taxi' or do you think she might suggest, even complain, that direct flights, with seat backs that recline, are available at modest prices and what focking planet do you think you are on?
P.S. Don't forget the wheelchair subsidy you need to pay on Ryanair despite the fact you will never need one, although it seems one or more forum members may like to see you in a wheelchair :)
P.P.S. I bet you have a house full of 'Tesco Value' products don't you BF?
You should not be rude. I dont mind joking but the wheelchair is a bit too far. anyway, what are you going to say if Ryan gets a landing strip in Kharkov for example for £2 :)
I know lufthansa has nice, wide leather seats but they are just so f*****g expensive at £350 wherever you wanna go in europe. Forget my experience earlier, I jusr got ill. But yeh, I would prefer to travel direct coz its knackering doing the train bit afterwards
The Low Cost Carriers can only operate within the EU under the EU's 'Open Skies Policy', to the best of my knowledge Kharkov is not in the EU!
Wheelchair was a joke, didn't you notice the smiley :) however it is apparent that some of the members of this forum have taken a dislike to you with some name calling etc. but I actually quite like you but if only for your entertainment value.
It seems that you can not enter into a conversation without talking about a means of not paying money. I detect that you are not a poor person, you have just travelled to FSU and you are already talking of travelling again, thus it would appear that you are not poor but ‘tight’.
Now on your previous trip I recall that you travelled out to Salzburg and returned via Poland and all to save, your quoted, GBP20.00. Now you really didn’t save anything at all, please work it out, from the moment you left home to the moment you arrived in Ukraine, and vice versa, exactly how much you spent on air fares, train fares, taxi fares, hotels, meals, cups of coffee etc. etc. etc. and compare this against the KLM fare I quoted you at the time of GBP219.00. Then, bearing in mind your destination was Ukraine, how many days did you actually spend in Ukraine, perhaps it was 5 when, had you taken direct flights, you could have spent 7 days thus dividing the KLM fare of GBP219.00 by 7 = GBP31.28 per day, perhaps you saved your GBP20.00 and paid GBP199.00, but only spent 5 days in Ukraine having spent the other 2 days backpacking across Europe thus your daily rate in Ukraine equates to GBP39.80, how did you save money BF?
People joke about a ‘Mr Scrooge’ and you need to take a good look in the mirror BF. It seems that you are so besotted by not spending money, perhaps you have been single for too long, that you just cannot realise what you are doing wrong and how ladies despise such a characteristic in a man. I have to admit that I laugh at you because you are so concentrated on saving money you are actually throwing away every penny/cent that you spend on travelling to and occupying time in FSU whilst you maintain such a concentration.
Don’t you realise that if and when you become married you are going to have to relinquish some spending powers to your spouse, do you really believe that she is going to want to ‘backpack’ across Europe just to see her loved ones, do you think that she is going to settle for ‘Tesco Value’ hair shampoo or clothes from the ‘George’ range at Asda (Wal-Mart to Americans) when there are designer products available, BF you need to cancel all your travel plans until you can change your attitude and that is the best advice I can offer you.
Martin you live in a different world. i think you should be the new casino royale bond. Afterall on another thread you were talking about if 40K dollars is enough for a FSU lady to spend during her 3 month fiancee visa trip. You are obviously a "surrey" man living in Birmingham. God knows why anyone would want to live in Birmingham anyway esp if theyre from surrey (lol) but there you go. Anyway, I am off to Riga or Kaunas in a couple of weeks and will rent a flat for a month or so. No I am not really poor but I am not megarich either and yes I agree with you that direct flights save time and maybe even money but as I said to you, I did not want to have to put a return date into the flight so I tool a cheap one-way to salzburg and then the train. Otherwise if I knew when I was coming back, I would have booked the direct kiev flight. I am also not on here for arguments.
have a nice day
