Took an unexpected trip to Whitby when the weather turned wet and windy at our planned destination, Pembrokeshire.

Booked the YHA there and found the entrance (eventually) a nice fit for the Beast.


Emirates A380-800



Pretty impressed with my first experience of this plane. I was lucky enough to be in business class which always helps. Upper deck was business and first only,  with only 4 across in business,  there was lots of space and fully reclining beds.  Entertainment was via a 22″ ish touch screen,  but there was also a 8″ tablet for remote control (yes,  there ws nearly enough leg room to make this necessary!).  WiFi access was at a fee of $7.50 for 15Mb or $20 for 100Mb, and mobile worked on edge network.
