  1. So it was one of those miserable weekend weather days - had worked in the business for 15 hours the day before - placed a coffee on the table and threw on an oldie- “Papillon”. Still a classic still a pleasure to pass away 2 odd hours. Have forgotten the number of times I’ve enjoyed this movie- it’s been a few times however.Took me back to my earlier days - and my earlier days of visits to LOS. Movies do that at times - sometimes yes sometimes. Have you seen The Third Man? I shall throw that on one day - ol man Cotter ! In the mean time I am planning my final days here before trying ( dabbling) in time off. (I am) Following FB postings on R and R it reminds me of a significant lack of free time on my part. For those of you who are in that phase of retirement- you are the lucky ones. There is value in ‘time off’ - not so? See ya!

    Departees !

    No - ever tried to see Myanmar again. Am pondering a time in Cambodia - there are many positive comments from folk who have tried the life AND STAYED. I currently reside in South Africa - the hurdles ( life) here are many - some just appear to be just too high to jump.

    Departees !

    I have enjoyed this board over the years. Travel is part of my DNA . Many of the chaps here have posted info which I have ( thank you ) used in my travels. Places to go - and not. I made note. I am sure by now I could pen a paper script which may interest a few. On one occasion - a mate and I decided one night ( ( in a Bangkok Bar ) to visit Myanmar . The posters on this board made note of the bird flu in Myanmar. I canceled this trip and flew elsewhere. Good advice. And as I have noted the the postings - I've also noted the posters. So here I now pose my question . So many posters are no longer here - or silent - whatever - so are the folk on this board aware where these chaps are? For example - where is the prolific poster ' Old Hippie'? OH was a computer of travel info. So chaps - occasionally post news of our buddies who may have left us or are residing elsewhere. Best for 2017 - I'm off to NZ for a visit / a trip to Cambodia / a look at LOS as retirement looms. And I remain on this board - ðŸ‘
  5. Go buddie go! Have all the fun your heart desires !

  7. And how many of our Board members have passed on ? Do you Sanuk have a page of remembrance? So many no longer here - sadly.

    Star Of Light Update

    Perhaps so! However I prefer the pleasure of a no stress mind at night - rather than the physical joy of two minutes in THE STARLIGHT.
