    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.

    I have a similar infliction, however it's piles of paperwork (much to my wifes displeasure). When I worked more from home, my paperwork piles sort of fled the office and took up residence on the...

    Re: Seeking advice on Eurail Travel passes

    Depend's - a pass where you can just turn up at any station and simply jump on almost any train on a whim, or time spent making lots of little bookings. Eurail is brilliant for freedom and...

    So I registered for a 50% SC bonus offered via email the day or two before this double promotion was announced. I will have a two day window May 3-4 to get the double SC after my "hurry 50% bonus but...

    Re: Seeking advice on Eurail Travel passes

    That's a big claim to make considering you don't know the actual trips to be taken. I'd be surprised if it is possible to do 5 train journeys, on 5 separate days, all in first class (remember all...

    I also meant to tell you about ADL-xMEL-OOL. That was a pretty good earner during the J sale that finished yesterday.

    Re: QF Double Status Credits (SC) offer for all :)

    The approach that has been taken in the past is to book with the gift voucher, wait for the points to credit without bonus and then call to make the case for the bonus to be given. There are a number...
