    So, live somewhere like Bangkok or some shithole in China and you travel a lot. Live somewhere you actually want to be and you travel less. It hardly means the person in the place they don't like is more intrepid.

    cheers

    i've been told i must be depressed because i don't really fancy doing anything beyond sitting in the bedroom or garden

    it's also expensive to travel and you gain so little

    btw cy...are you around at the moment

    3rd test starts later this week right?

    Nice.

    Look for things to do in the extended community. An endless trail.

    I hope to stay home more when i can afford to still a have to do a bit of work every now and then.
    Aged 53 at the moment not quite ready for those slippers and pipe yet.
    It will be nice to reach the time of life when i can sit down a relax a bit more,but will still try and get out for a wander around a few of Bangkok's parks every now and then.

    I'm here thru Friday nooners.

    I haven't watched tests one or two but a couple of gin and tonics and another Ben stokes lead evisceration is not without its appeal.

    Not left in 7 years. Didn't care much for England when I went back. There again, I'm from Doncaster, a chav infested dump. Shame they don't just burn it down and start again

    I quite like going back to the USA and being a tourist.

    Sadly, I'm long overdue for a visit, nearly three years now, and no MickeyD's.
    Hopefully this spring I'll make it happen. I like to get away for Songkhran.

    I can certainly understand the staying in Thailand thing, i quite like it here too.

    I envy the man who can set sail at the drop of his hat with no strings to tie him down. If he's got the money and health to do it - indeed why not !

    Caveat: I am not one in those shoes. Jumping to LOS was a pretty major step...now taking it slow with smaller trips. I discovered that I wasn't Superman after all.

    I enjoy travelling. The destination is kind of irrelevant to me, I enjoy the journey.

    its taking the piss though right?

    i have reported it

    i'm not sure if there is policy anymore but one of the things that TD always did well was protect real names and pictures

    of course she made a mistake in posting it in the first place but i was happy to share pictures during more innocent times
    if she doesn't ant her picture displayed anymore then respect her wishes

    i'd prefer that mrs q removed it herself but if she refuses then the mods can take care of it
