The choice is ridiculous, a slightly daunting prospect for someone as indecisive as me but luckily I soon found my feet. There is everything to choose from, eggs to pancakes to paella and tapas, surely something to keep everyone happy. Apart from anything else, this is a ham lovers dream.

Lets be honest, these sandwiches are way better than anything you’ll find at an airport. Sorry the photos are so dreadful, it was dark and we were in a rush. I went for a classic Rueben and mum opted for pulled pork and avocado, both were totally 1 (6)photo 3 (6) photo 2 (8)We were cutting it pretty close by this point so rushed back to the hotel to grab our bags and hot-footed it to the airport, only to find our plane was an hour delayed. Obviously. Oh well, we were thankful to have been granted our 2 bonus days.
