    Question How difficult is it to visit Israel?

    Following with interest as in 2021 we would like to visit Israel, Jordan and Egypt in one trip. We also clearly want to avoid an Israeli stamp in our passport.

    Not sure why EBP cared as they were getting 0.8% (now 1.3%) of that!!

    Easy Bill Pay - Enhanced

    Anyway both mine and +1s EBP accounts have been suspended...haven't used them since the Oct enhancement so no biggie. May consider YP but at 1.1% too expensive for me...means buying KF miles at 1.3 c per mile using StG before tax deductions.

    Varies....sometime in Oct/ Nov usually. Impossible to predict the actual spawning dates though but you still get to see the red crab migration before / after the spawning dates. Red crab migration

    Christmas Island. (AFF community report)

    A few points: 1) The flight to Xmas Island departs from Per international terminal so the liquid rule applies. Technically you only need your Australian Driver Licence as it is part of Australia but it is advisable to carry your passport as Jakarta is only 500 kilometres North of Xmas Island and...

    Christmas Island. (AFF community report)

    No the robber crab is a much bigger crab than the red and blue crabs (both are similar in size, the adults anyway). You can see a close up of the robber crab in the 5th photo of my post #15. In the 4th photo in post #15, you can see how big the robber crab is cf to the red crab...I believe the...

    We weren't brave enough to swim in the Grotto....looked a bit menacing as we arrived around dusk time! But we did hike out to the Hughs Dale waterfall and were refreshed by the cool shower as shown in the photo in the post above and below....it was quite a hike maybe 60-90 mins in quite humid...

    Easy Bill Pay - Enhanced

    The fee increase in Oct last year from 0.8 to 1.3% killed off EBP for me....having put a 7 figure sum through it in the preceeding months! :(

    Christmas Island. (AFF community report)

    In 2012, we went to Easter Island. A few years later my better 1/2 asked me tongue in cheek why we hadn't been to Xmas Island. Apart from the Detention Centre, I knew nothing about Xmas Island! After a bit of online researching I read about the Red Crab migration (David Attenborough described...

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    No. :( I haven't done a trip report for years! We actually did a combined Cocos Keeling and Christmas Islands trip in 2016 using Va points as the paid return Y fare from Syd was almost $1000 each!
