I'm on the countdown to trip 5 out of 5 for the summer.

But, on the positive, at least I'll probably go* whereas you are likely to fail to decide how to get to the airport and cancel everything.


*if I don't miss the flight this time.

I'm jealous. So in need of a trip away now and all I have lined up is two UK trips for weddings.

Need to retire. Bored with work. Seems such a slog at the minute.

Not helped by two mates living (8 & 12 months) out in SEA whatsapping regularly from various awesome places.

Dicks.

Well, yes, so am I

It'll probably take you the entire flight to decide on your drinks order with the trolley dolly. I pity those who sit behind you.

Emirates is too dear for me I'm afraid.

I'm flying Dubai -> Istanbul -> Sao Paulo -> Curitiba. Going to be a long ass flight.

Something for you to watch before you go, but you could change your mind before then!!

I wondered how tight you were being if I'm honest and popped onto skyscanner.

There wasn't anything I could see for less than 15k which is butt-hurtingly expensive.

yup. the summer round trip for the wife and kids was just over 30k! Nasty routing of DXB->FRA->ABZ->FRA->GIG->FLP->GRU->FRA->DXB. Well any routing that includes ABZ is nasty, but you get my point.
