    As any city can tell you, hosting the Olympic Games can put you on the map. Prior to the announcement that this years games would be held in Sochi, not much was known about the place and it was hardly a tourist highlight, probably best known for hosting Stalin's Dacha.

    With the games about to start, we already have a member on the ground
    Just let me say, I am part of the management team delivering the coverage to be telecast on TEN, ONE and TENPlay from next week. As TEN only secured the rights a few months ago, it has been a challenge arranging everything for the team of 90 travelling to Sochi at the moment. We have a great studio overlooking the indoor venues and the Olympic Torch near the coast and facilities at one venue (Extreme Park) in the mountains where it is hoped Aussies win some medals.
    Whilst the Winter Olympics are not as popular as their summer siblings, Australia has had a growing presence in terms of participating athletes across the various sports and more lately medals, even if it did take the entire field bar Steven Bradbury falling over to kick of the medal rush. The 1993 Disney Movie Cool Runnings did wonders for interest in the bobsleigh event, perhaps its why Jana Pittman and Astrid Radjenovic are participating this year, some 14 years after training together for track events prior to the Sydney Olympics?

    Will the city be ready, what frustrations will our travellers experience on the long journey to Sochi, what’s the weather like and will there be snow? Follow our intrepid members HERE as they enjoy the Winter Olympics in Sochi – AFF style.

    Sitting next to Damian Fleming in the Island Dining area of MEL J Lounge now. Can't wait for him to get off the phone so I can ask some questions

    Re: 2015 Gallipoli Ballot - 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings

    Reply received, carry on luggage size is the guidance on backpacks.

    Not newspaper, sports, paparazzi style zoom cameras. Still undecided about taking a 300mm lens.

    Re: ATO Credit Card Points Summary

    AFAIK the transaction should be considered a purchase, not a cash advance, as with any other similar payment.



    This card does indeed cap points earn to $100K of spend per month.

    Not to mention the first paragraph does not even apply. I had the boarding pass in my hand - I had the premium seat! "Every attempt" to provide my preferred seat had worked, until someone decided to...

    Arrived on time at Changi Int, basically first off and no waiting at immigration. Luggage not so quick but still in the first batch. Painless through customs then a quick trip on sky train to check...

    The standard cut and paste response which completely ignores the fact that you were lied to.
