Despite an indication that it should be pretty simple to get our thread back I have had no further word from RW on it. I suppose the waiting continues... Have you noticed though that the offers for cheap counterfeit money and passports seem to have been culled? I'm advised my account and our thread were casualties of this process. I will have to find another form of income now.
Blimey JAR - RIP Hugh - how disconnected am I?
I was just thinking I should have added Dexy's Midnight Runners
Terry, am I doing something wrong or is the sale over:-
Hang on... where the hell are they taking me from Manchester - ABZ?
Aha - if I miss out living in the sticks then it helps, but is that cost just one way?
Went to sort out some connecting flights before I sorted the above, but why are they in dollars? Is this what you do - it all seems very piecemeal - got to get from Man to Lon on the other side now... Maybe Emirates would be simpler (and cheaper)?
I need to thank Terry for prompting on the flights - I think in the past people have said not to panic on that front as the prices don't seem to fluctuate too much prior to the big day anyway. But certainly if you want to use Emirates for the simplicity of just two big hauls I think the very best deals on economy options go quite early - on my search the best Emirates deal was already at "the number of the beast" - although I am once again arriving very late and leaving very early so not many will be searching for the flights I am after I would suspect. There was a pure BA option at £540 too with the advantage of LHR to DUR direct but the return was via JNB so I didn't think the extra £100 for one direct leg was worth it.
My only concern now is that my last two transits through JNB on the inward leg have been disastrous. I have arrived very early Friday morning and then through cancellations or lethargy ended up leaving at the other end of the day, on one occasion so late that the expo had closed and I had to re-arrange things and drop in Saturday afternoon to get running number etc. I have become an expert at eating well and whiling away time at JNB.
That first multi-thousand pound ticket with VA was taking me to London via Aberdeen! I think maybe because they don't do a Manchester to London shuttle themselves! Crazy man.
Is this unusual? Snow in the Eastern Cape this weekend? Photos were taken at a game farm near Graff-Reinet...
Bike - I love how your son only had a second to spare - not making any comparisons there at all! Glad your bones are playing ball!
Max - another great bargain! What? They have more to say on entries? Oh no, I might have a plane ticket I want to sell tomorrow!
