Re: Europe travel

It would take 2 weeks to just do those two cities! Two of my favourites. Use Eurotunnel for travel between the two. To avoid lots of travel, as you say, go somewhere else nearby. Perhaps north to somewhere like Amsterdam, or somewhere in Switzerland. Or head North from London to Edinburgh. Another g...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

Interesting responses. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/penalties-for-social-security-fraud-and-error/penalties-policy-in-respect-of-social-security-fraud-and-error State pension fraud is not a sanctionable offence. That means it cannot be stopped or reduced because an offence has been com...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

However, if you don't acknowledge that you are living permanently in Thailand - which is not dishonest, because what is 'permanent' and events might make you wish to return.. - and if asked directly, state that you are currently enjoying an extended holiday, again being careful with words, but not ...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I look at the poll up there and my gut is telling me it's going to be some dark horse, maybe a team not even on the poll. :shock: :D Pete :cheers: I don't know who will win it and haven't voted. But I think Spain have been the standout team for me and on another day would have beaten Portugal comfo...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I thought we played really well, okay it dried up a bit in the 2nd half, but we were by far the better side, as we should have been. I have no idea why Walker had to raise his hands to concede the penalty, by his own admission, he should have just headed it away. But we have to take chances at this ...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Denmark had just made a deal as the first in the world. Interesting, but a little different to the article we were discussing which talked of airbnb actually collecting taxes. Still, good luck to the Danes for getting some agreement from Airbnb and restricting the number of nights a property can ac...

Re: AirAsia to fly KL to Hua Hin from May 18

I just checked AA Bkk to KK for November and flights are available (1000B return!). So I think there might be a variety of reasons that details don't show yet. As a new route, they want to be certain it's going to be a profitable before releasing more flights, or at least consider the schedule, if s...

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

I think the first thing they will do will be to look at the average value of any overpayment and then consider that against the cost of seeking to recover the money from x individuals They will also consider the moral of seeking to recover from those who are not to blame for the error, which for mos...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

I doubt Airbnb will want to collect taxes. They will lose 1000's of clients Word wide. I also thought the article part PR for the condo construction industry trying to re-assure potential buyers. It was interesting to learn that many Chinese investors have bought heavily in Thailand for short term l...

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

Wouldn't you be better checking with your Thai lawyer who you make reference to in your post? Somehow I don't think anything Expedia say will cut a lot of ice with the Thai authorities.

Re: Uploading photo here?

I suspect that many who are into photography or just like to take lots of pic's use a hosting site which are widely available. You can then add the photo directly from the hosting site onto here, via the appropriate 'insert image' link above the post a reply box. Although some of these seem fraught ...

Re: Where to buy Grass Seed

Was actually looking for somewhere local in HH, I know I can buy turf sods, squares about 500x500 just down the road from my house but that is not the way I would like to do it. The reason I bought from there is I couldn't find anything here! My neighbour gets his brought from the UK when guests co...

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

Spain has no coach. Will they rally, or will they dissolve? Will be interesting to watch. Pete :cheers: They have a new coach for the tournament, Fernando Hierro, who won 89 caps for Spain and was Director of Football. I don't think the change will be a big problem for them, as there will be contin...

Re: RE: Re: Where to buy Grass Seed

The plant shops at Chatachak market sell grass seed. Outside the market, across street. Just find the stretch of road with tons on flower and plant shops. In answer to Stevep, the above is correct. I bought some there the other week. Its a great market actually and open daily. Apart from the plant ...
