Turn your stopover into a start-over

A necessary evil to fly for the best price, stopovers are often best forgotten. Unless you enjoy sleeping on the cold, hard floor of an airport waiting lounge of course. But why not treat it as an opportunity? With a little know-how, the humble stopover can become the start of something amazing.

Oh, we have some recommendations alright. Step forward Lucy from our Leeds Vicar Lane store…
