Re: Going Home

I would suggest you start a new thread with your projected figures on so that those living in Vancouver can let you know if they're accurate or not. Most don't think life there is any cheaper than...

Re: Going Home

I thought pacepeter meant the UK?! Just goes to show how it's all about perspective and the area moved to/from - the list he's given is far more relevant to the UK IMO! :lol:

Re: Going Home

Re: Going Home

Yep, my husband is. He travels a lot with work, mainly just day trips to Scotland/Ireland/Europe, and gets a lot of Avios points. So far, in the past year all 4 of us have gone to Milan, Paris,...

Re: Going Home
