Jun 3rd 2011 4:41PM I had two massages at Lila Thai - which was recommended to me by my guest house, the Sawasdee Chiang Mai - and my husband one, and they were all sublime, and the masseuses lovely.
Dec 21st 2010 1:15PM Knitting needles are not allowed in the European Airports that I am familiar with, like LHR:
Dec 15th 2010 1:30PM I'm curious about the knitting - how does it get past security? I work at an airport, where knitting needles are always confiscated by security officials....
Aug 17th 2010 10:30AM Last year, our check-in luggage got delayed at KUL and only reached Singapore the day after we did, but the staff at Singapore Airport were very efficient and friendly, and we were given enough $'s to buy necessities for the first night....happily, as my hand luggage contained nothing but cameras and film. :-)
Jun 8th 2010 11:49AM I'm a Europe-based flyer (destinations U.K./Asia), and my least favourite airline is KLM - what a coincidence: Delta partner - grumpy crew, dubious service, tasteless and few-and-far-between meals...and antiquated communal entertainment systems.
I am a total EasyJet fan, as far as England goes. And Asia? I hope to fly EVA Air next time round - it's pretty much the epitome of how all-round-excellent an airline can be.
Feb 2nd 2010 11:56AM Oh, I so totally disagree - but then, loving photography, I see my travels as non-stop photo ops, so I WOULD. On our recent month in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, my camera (I took a 30 year old Mamiya TLR with me) started conversations several times a day and led to delightful, memorable encounters. And my penchant for photographing detail and colour opened my eyes to circumstances and singularities I might otherwise have missed. It was heavy, and carrying the film could be seen as a hassle, but I never for a moment regretted my decision to lug it along.
