Travelling the world



Virgin Atlantic

It was our very first Virgin Atlantic flight. We were quite interested to see whether they would provide the excellent service we'd heard so much about. I think they must have not been talking about economy. Whilst the customer service... Continue Reading →

My memories of Christchurch
