A city break to Warsaw, Feb half term 2019

Have been checking for flights for next February and found the Ryan air flights loaded.
I have a group of good friends that I see regularly, they go away once a year which I normally miss out on as they go term time and I work in a school. We decided to book a city break and decided on next February half term. Unfortunately all the holiday gang couldnt make it but Im happy most of them could.
Basically we wanted the cheapest flights to cities that are not in the euro to keep costs down. Bratislava is on our list of city breaks but the flights were expensive so I looked at Krakow and Warsaw. They were roughly the same price but we have visited Krakow and although we really enjoyed it we decided to try somewhere new.
So, details so far, flights Stansted to Warsaw (Modlin) departing 8.55 on Saturday 16th February and coming home 15.35 Tuesday 19th. Other flights were available, but these were the best times. The return price is 74.31 each which includes pre booked seats at 3 each way. I booked on the computer, so you get a choice of choosing certain seats at a discounted rate, I dont think you can do this on the app.
I booked it last night, for 6 people, not going to lie, I was having a panic attack about booking for us all. Normally we do it together, or at least another person checking but as we wanted to it sorted before the price changed and as the others were leaving for London early today for a couple of nights, it was down to me. I was triple checking all the names and was on facebook messenger to a couple of the other girls taking photos of everything and sending them before I pressed the pay button
I know holidays with friends is some peoples idea of hell, but we have been doing it for years, and still going strong.
So, here we all are...
Me, Julie, 43, trip writer and only dibber of the group, so I can write what I like about them

I always have sunnies ready for photos
Next is my sister Steph, 56

Linda, she hates people knowing her age but I will say shes reaching a special birthday soon and looks a lot younger than she is

Debbie, 56

Sandy, 48


I did book for our friend Jules but she had to pull out because of illness.

Three more people have added on, they booked their own flights.
Kim, 56

Tracy, 45

And my best friend from college, Martin, 43

Sandy has booked 3 apartments near the old town, all in the same building, 2x4 and 1x2. This was 65 each for the three nights.
Myself, Steph, Debbie, Linda, Tracy and Sandy will be travelling ti the airport together, Sandy booked a taxi for us all which was 33 each return.
Kim will be driving from Leicester and Martin will be getting the train from London.

Sounds like a fun trip...well done on booking flights at such a good price (and taking the lead )

Thank you, I am really looking forward to it. I haven't been on a girlie trip for a couple of years.

We loved Krakow and like to stay out of the euro zones for city breaks, it so much cheaper. I was checking every day for the flight, they were showing as unavailable before they were loaded onto the website.
