Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

  1. But those boards of yours did go wrong...... I used to spent plenty of time in my younger days replacing components on them.......
  2. Now what we have here is a sneaky spammer.... After a little bit of detective work he appears to have posted hello messages on several forums and his IP address shows him from Pakistan and not the US.... He won't be back!!!
  3. Found out today that my step-daughters graduation ceremony is to be held in December and for the first time since Thailand closed the border Mrs Fiend has mentined about flying back... Even just to have a week with family it'll cost her 3 weeks leave, and that's if they'll let her take it.... I could go as well, due to being the spouse of a Thai National, but if I go I'll have to suffer a stay in an ASQ....
  4. Things don't get any better for Boeing..... It has now come out that there is a large number of 787's that have been built with a manufacturing flaw in the horizontal stabiliser... https://www.seattletimes.com/business/boeing-aerospace/boeing-admits-a-new-quality-issue-on-the-787-and-tallies-more-737-max-cancellations/ More quality control issues..... And apparently the issue could be on up to 893 of the 982 that have already been delivered The 787 is still living up to its' Nightmareliner nickname...
  5. I know I'm shite at this and I don't know why I keep entering but I'm back for another go!!! My score for the last 5 season has increased every year so I do seem to be slowly getting better at it....
  6. For a regular flyer who lives near one of the places selling the passes it's a good offer. I've used Bangkok Airways to fly up to Chiang Mai and Sukothai.
  7. An appearance in "Shoestring" got me into Toyah....
  8. The Cure..... Recently nducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.... Still sounds good 40 years on
  9. I'm not an expat yet, and I'm not yet retired..... but I have decided on a date for taking early retirement and the closer I am getting to that date the more I am looking forward to it. There is also a chance that date might get brought forward, depending on whether the government forces budget cuts on my employers in view of what has happened over the last 6 months with the virus crisis. Contractors working on the site have already seen numbers cut and there are strong rumours of a sweet deal being offered to allow people to retire early in order to reduce staff numbers rather than making people redundant. Due to my shift pattern it already feels like I am semi-retired anyway..... I work 12 hour shifts on a 4 on 6 off cycle. I'm looking forward to retirement and looking forward to getting away from a cold and wet winter Britain!!!
  10. 7-11 using the same idea as McD's and their flatpack restaurants
  11. I believe Qatar will be keeping theirs mothballed but there are plans to bring them back,
  12. Looks like Emirates are starting to bring the A380's back into service... A lot of Boeing fanboys were hoping the A380 was killed off by Coronavirus...... Emirates obviously are proving them wrong. Coronavirus has killed off BA and Virgins 747's
  13. Skygod (RIP) would have loved it!!!
  14. I was issued vouchers with the 10% extra when they cancelled my flights but wanted a refund. If Qatar have cancelled your flights there should be no charges for a refund.... Their T & C's state that if they cancel, not you, then you are entitled to a full refund without charges. I got a full refund on a non-refundable ticket.
  15. In January I booked flights for May this year with Qatar and received notification during Easter weekend that my flights were cancelled. I successfully got a refund for the flights, despite them being non-refundable. If you booked online it needs to be done by going through a thing called Zendesk.
  16. Looks like they are working on burying a cable.... probably an afterthought!!!
  17. Was once stopping down in Twickenham and decided to go for a wander alongside the Thames heading eastward.... Didn't fancy walking all the way back from the centre of London, so I caught the tube from Victoria to Kew Garden and walked back from there...
  18. Can't really make any plans at the moment, but probably won't book a trip until the end of any quarantine requirement on arrival.... The only plan that seems to be set in stone is I'm retiring in 21 months time....
  19. https://www.tatnews.org/category/thailand-tourism-updates/ Probably the best website to keep an eye on for travel information for Thailand.... Situation updates posted every day and includes updates on airports and travel restrictions.
  20. How about this for a comprehensive list of those exempt from Quarantine.... https://immigrationbarrister.co.uk/who-is-exempt-from-the-14-day-coronavirus-quarantine-period/ I come under 2 of those categories....
  21. The bigger question is how long will it be before Thailand permits travellers from the UK to enter? And to enter without quarantine!!! Was watching a TV show this morning and it seems a lot of people are willing to accept quarantine on return as long as they get their 2 weeks holiday in Benidorm!!!!
  22. No quarantine for me!!! I've just been through that list and I'm in 2 of those categories.....
  23. Oh dear...... and the cabin door was open on that 787..... wonder how much foam got inside???
