List: Friday Four

Posted in: Lists


Some stuff on our minds as this week draws to close.

1. Ryanair’s new routes in and out of Stockholm’s Skavsta. Ryanair is launching another 13 routes to and from Skavsta. Starting in October, routes between Skavsta and Alicante, Basel, Berlin, Bratislava, Eindhoven, Karlsruhe Baden, Liverpool, Malta, Pisa, Porto, Trapani, and Valencia will kick off. A Skavsta-Salzburg route will commence in December.

2. Melati Cottages, Ubud, Bali. Yes, we know that Bali is far away from Europe, but we returned last Thursday from an amazing week in Bali. Much of what made the week so amazing was our experience at Melati, a friendly guesthouse between Ubud and Penestanan. Located in an idyllic green setting, Melati boasts incredibly friendly and helpful staff, a remarkable in-house masseuse, and lovely breakfasts (we won’t forget that black rice anytime soon.) Double room rates booked online begin at US$29, including taxes. Highly recommended!

3. Check out this handy Ljubljana events calendar, provided by the Slovenian capital’s official site.

4. Tomorrow, easyJet kicks off a twice-weekly Glasgow-Ibiza service, which will run through September 8.
