Easyjet Plane


Greece Sightseeing

Always searching for the next adventure…

I’m sure we all have slow days at work. We all sit and watch the clock tick backwards, twiddling our thumbs until our lunch hour.

I had that sort of day yesterday, flicking through emails and signing letters in an increasingly robotic fashion.

On my lunch hour I was having a scroll through some travel blogs and decided that I wanted to get away. Ryan and I had been trying to plan something for our anniversary weekend but relentless searches of British city breaks had left us uninspired- and would have left us penniless.

Like a woman possessed I began to Google cheap flights.

Cheap flights to anywhere.

After 5 minutes Easyjet popped up offering return flights to Basel for just over £50.

Now that was an offer I couldn’t refuse.

Seeing that there were nearly 100 people viewing the same flight I didn’t stop to think and snapped up the tickets.

It was only after that I began to question which country Basel was actually in… Switzerland it turns out!

Even if the trip turns out to be an absolute disaster I can at least say that I was spontaneous.

That’s a big thing for me.

I usually mull over every decision that comes my way, weighing up every pro and con until the excitement has been sucked out of it. But why, when blindly jumping in with both feet is so much fun?!

Of course there are some decisions that need umming and ahhing over but what’s life if you don’t live in the moment every once in a while?

So watch out Basel, crazy free-spirited Lauren is on her way!

Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do in Basel? Let me know (it’s not like I’ve got anything planned…).

    Spontaneity is a must if you really want to enjoy travelling. Basel is not a bad choice, the city is very multicultural. For the moment I’ve just seen the little airport (it’s really cute!) and the main station (that one is really big). So, the only thing I can recommend is taking the bus to the city center. It is departing every 10 minutes and costs 4,20 CHF (a little less than 3 pound) oneway. A pretty fair price for Switzerland. Everything else, sadly, is way more expensive in Switzerland 😦
