    This will be another impossible task. Three from our 2016 trip to South America. Buenos Aires, Iguazu, BA, Lima, Intrepid Land of the Incas (Amazon, Cuzco, Inca Trail, Cuszco, Puno, Lake Titicaca, La Paz), Lima, BA. 14 weeks before we left I had my big toes rebuilt. I couldn't even walk...

    I admit defeat. Not a chance I could just keep that holiday to three photos, especially when we (well, he) walked on ice and we plunged and we soaked in hot pools with French champers and Viking beers

    August/September 2015. East Greenland Expedition on The World. We started with six days in Iceland. The expedition ended in St Johns but we stayed on the ship until Quebec City then caught trains for stays in Montreal and NYC. Five weeks, three photos... Iceland was amazing. We can't wait to go...

    I always have much more leave accrued that bigal. I get more lsl each year than him and at the time was working lots of overtime that was paid by time in lieu. bigal suggested that me and the friend we'd travelled a couple of times with take a long weekend away. He suggested Melbourne. We booked...

    A friend's 50th birthday saw us off to HK for a long weekend. First time we've ever had a bag go astray - my partners. Usually so careful with sharing across bags but it had all of our toiletries, our chargers. It arrived on day three! Just meant he had to shop. All covered by insurance claim...

    So with you on this one. I keep doing it, and terrified every single time. Cable Mountain was going to be the next in eight short weeks. Maybe next year, or the year after...

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    Ok... only three minutes between dialling and call being picked up by Helen in NZ. Helen could see that I'd requested refund on April 20. Despite submitting request inside window of 6000 waiver I was asked if I was aware it would be charged. I said nope, that should be waived. Then gave me...

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    It's now a month since I cancelled the points flight of our two to SA. Webpage advised 8-10 days. No points, no ccard refund. I'm going to call today and see where it is.

    Our first holiday on The World. An amazing experience that we've been lucky enough to repeat twice more. For our first voyage we sailed Papeete-Moorea-Huahine-Bora Bora-Aitutaki-Rarotonga-Nukualofa-Norfolk Island-Bay of Islands-Auckland over 24 days then we flew down to Christchurch for a few...

    British Airways refunds for flight cancellations

    We’re (we were) flying BA domestically in SA in July. I’ve heard nothing from BA about these flights and finally decided to see if there was anything in the news. Comair who operates BA in SA is about to go into some form of administration as their fleet is grounded and will not be flying...

    Late 2013 and we were off again. Siem Reap - Vietnam - Kuala Lumpur. A short Intrepid Sapa walking trip (great), a 'south bound' Intrepid food tour (FANTASTIC!!) and a stop over on the way home in Kuala Lumpur (first visit). We had a great time in Siem Reap. Good choice of hotel with lovely...

    2013 and I hit 50. I wanted to go on a cruise and didn't want to fly so our only choice was Sun Princess to Fiji. No better way to start a holiday than a surprise of Dom (2012 no less!) and chocolates me at the controls of a crazy stretch motor bike thing, Port Denarau My birthday...

    Back to the UK later in 2012. Post summer Olympics but there for most of Paralympics. We tried (half tried) to get tickets with no success. We flew over the top via Tokyo, BA PE and J on points, our first ever J flight. No stop on the way there but short stop on the way back. 33 days away. We...

    Strangely enough bigal was just talking to me about aquariums and this visit came up. I now apologise for spreading fake news. This is apparently a finless porpoise. Not a beluga, just as lonely, just as horrific.

    Qantas booking cancellation (under covid19)

    I spoke too soon. No sign of email letting me know that refund was being processed for the J flight to SA despite being told "this should go straight through". Just logged in and there's a bloody credit there. Grrrrr. Also no sign of points refund, again, despite the website displaying that this...

    2012 and it was back to Thailand again. We caught the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai (I spent the day after regretting staying up most of the night drinking in the 'disco' carriage), three night Intrepid Golden Triangle tour (Doi Mae Salong-Chiang Rai), Railay Beach, Bangkok. It was our...

    Working through the drive and realised I was missing our first trip to Thailand. Dug out our oldest hard drive and found a whole bunch of photos including the missing 2006 holiday. Phuket, Phi Phi Don and Bangkok. Off season so half price hotels but also ordinary weather. It was before we knew...

    Agree completely. I'm not even sure why we went to the zoo. Gee it was awful. We went to NE Aquarium last year and agree definitely a good one. We had big issues with Chicago's on the same trip. They had beluga as well. Horrible. I asked one of the keepers some questions they were not really...
