I'm finally back in sunny Singapore after spending 1 semester abroad. It was a great experience, albeit expensive. So let’s continue where we last left off. For those who missed the 1st and 2nd leg of the journey (final destination: CPH), feel free to read them here:

This is my 8th trip report. Enjoy!
After spending a few days at my aunt’s place, it was time to fly off again. This time round, I made a short trip to Dublin, Ireland. I booked myself on Aer Lingus (EI) and it came up to GBP26 for a one way flight. I had the option to return to MAN with EI but instead, I decided to fly back with Ryanair (FR). The return flight costs EUR18. Since the ETD was 0800, I decided it would be wise to sleep at the airport the night before and not run the risk of missing my flight if I were to leave my aunt’s place early in the morning. Unfortunately, sleeping at MAN wasn’t as comfortable as I thought it would be.
Check-in was a breeze and I like that, especially when it's early in the morning (0600).
As I entered the rear door of the aircraft, I was greeted by a well-groomed cabin crew. Since I was one of the last few to board the plane, I quickly made my way to my seat. Most of the passengers on this morning's flight were white-collar workers. I was probably one of the few passengers headed for DUB for a short holiday.
As soon and the last passenger settled down, the cabin crew prepared themselves for departure. Manual safety instuctions were carried out, and as usual, most of the passengers did not pay attention to it.
Well, frankly I don't have much comment for EI as it felt like I had just been on a budget carrier. But to be fair, I was on a short flight so probably I did not experience the same level of service I would if i were to fly long haul on EI. Before I continue on the return flight, here are some pictures of Dublin.
Since there are a couple of FR reports here, I shall leave you guys with just some pictures.
Stay tuned for the final leg: MAN-CPH.
