you're always paying for something


we had a miserable travel day. After a 4 hour delay our hopes of switching airlines in Dublin turned into a 7 hour waiting game in which we gnashed our teeth, split into pairs, and generally limped our way to Gronigen from the Dublin airport. Originally we were supposed to get in at 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Instead we got in at 2 in the morning... Even if we saved on plane tickets it ultimately was not worth the hassle. We found similar dissatisfaction with our housing situation. Lesson learned. Even if the price tag is higher, we need to keep in mind what we're actually paying for.
