    how to exchange old for new UK currency from Australia

    Here in Myanmar ^ Absolutely this The most minor of creases, a tiny mark, a folded corner - and it will not be accepted anywhere in the country. A few private money changers may take a nearly pristine note, but will hit you on the exchange rate. An ongoing frustration for expats and locals...

    Dumb Airlines not thinking

    It's interesting how everyone views the current situation. Some view it as meaning that bargain travel will be available once travel restrictions ease - but there is something else to be aware of. As jb747 said, airlines and their seat availability will be significantly reduced. For my two...

    A chance to reminisce - who remembers the "old days" of Travel?

    Great post @juddles Totally my era too, for the start of my younger travelling life. Recently I was reminiscing with a similar aged friend.

    Help needed finding destination guide video on Dallas Fort Worth
