Re: British Airways YVR to LHR

Good advice, thanks. We don't have a car (trying to do without one and just get the odd car share when we need it) and have been thinking of taking the train up sometime.

Re: British Airways YVR to LHR

Thanks J, yes we will look at Virgin who I believe codeshare with Delta. Mr K flew Air Canada when he brought the cats over - road tripped them from YVR to Seattle - and was not that impressed. I...

Re: British Airways YVR to LHR

Not YVR and nothing to do with safety but I flew BA SEA-LHR last Summer, my first trip to the old country since moving to Seattle from Oz. I paid for their version of Premium Economy (as opposed to...

Re: Moving without expat package?

Yes to this - we made sure the amount offered was the amount we got to play with.

Moving countries is a great way of having a clear out, though I did note the other night that I was wearing a...

Re: Moving without expat package?

You're so right about the small things that add up but, if you know / think it's a temporary move, I advise just buying the bare minimum as you need it. When we moved to Singapore in 2002 with 4...

Re: How much to tip hairdresser?

I always wanted to marry a hair stylist so I could have my hair done every day.

I used to buzz my husband's hair but he prefers to pay somebody so he doesn't have to do the cleaning up. The barber...

Re: Moving without expat package?

Hi BusyLizzy, welcome. We've lived a few places over the last 18 years but moved to the US from Australia just last year. Lots of good advice and info here but the question I would ask you: If you...

Re: How much to tip hairdresser?

I am sure. Mine's straight-forward - cut and foils - it's the going rate, it's just the 20% tip that takes some getting used to.



Lucky you, but my comment was about tipping. However I paid...

Re: How much to tip hairdresser?

You're telling me. Cut and colour, including a 20% tip (and I did my research before starting this), costs me USD360 every 5 weeks.

Re: EAD renewal just took 6 months!

Wow I remember you asking about that a while back, and then posting that mine took 3 months. Should clarify that was my first one though.

(Now I have it, not sure I want to use it!)

Sanibel Island seems to get a lot of votes from families.

Florida vacation with 5 year-old

Hello, I don't venture in here very often as I've only been in the US since last June and don't have any words of wisdom to offer.

I'm starting to arrange a week's holiday for us (couple) in...

Re: What did you take with you?

Funny this thread should get resurrected today as I'm back in Oz clearing out the apartment for rental. We're putting most things into storage but do have a few more small things we want to move, so...

Re: Transgenderism - a sign of the times

I'll be honest that, while this thread is hugely interesting to me, I haven't read it all. I'm back in Oz right now clearing out my apartment and just nipping online during the odd break. And...

Re: Transgenderism - a sign of the times

Seriously this. A good friend of mine, who had been married to a bloke, in her fifties fell in love with a woman. Or as she so smartly put it, a person who just happened to be female.

Re: How "Australian" do you feel.

I'm with Dreamy and MP on how I feel - strange that eh? :lol:

At the risk of sounding knobby, I feel more of a global citizen. Fourth continent so far, always happy to be where I am and always try...

Re: Transgenderism - a sign of the times

I've worked with several trans women and one trans male over a period of 20 years. Maybe more I'm not aware of, these are just the ones I witnessed transition. I have known others socially, in fact...

Re: Broken bodies and bio mechanics

Ye-es, I cancelled my health insurance a month too early! Had to pay for my endoscopy, but it wasn't an awful lot.

Glad to hear it's just a cyst, SoS.

Not sure if it was this thread or another...

Re: Michael Bloomberg 2020??

I fear, if that's all we're aiming for (getting the crook out), we will end up with sleazy Uncle Joe. Maybe we just have to suck that up this time. (FYI I can't vote, can just watch in horror.)
