Re: Travel possibility

I really do despair of some of the comments that arise. What the f©ck have jeans got to do with asking a simple question about travel. Some people really need to live in the real world. I know what you mean. Some just can't resist trying the play the smartarse But they forget the smart bit. I find ...

Re: Travel possibility

I wouldn’t think an iPad you fancy would be considered essential,you might be able to wing the jeans though,especially if you go wearing an old ripped pair but then the question would be don’t they sell jeans nearer than Montpellier Aha!

A friend with benefits and a wife with a cancelled flight!

Re: Travel possibility

Linda, you are really saying it ius all subjective. And much as I always thought. This leads on to another question - who is the arbitrator in these things? is it the Gendarme who stops one? I guess it must be as the detail is not defined anywhere. In my description, I could say i am visiting a vuln...

, but please do not throw shovels of Sh1t at those who call you out for being the person you are.
Again, wind it in. This time I do not ask, but demand.

Re: Travel possibility

Is there a maximum distance you can travel 'to check on a vulnerable person'? And, what is the definition of 'vulnerable'? Take a mythical Gran - she is 75, still enjoys a drink or two, smokes like a trooper, like a rabbit sexually when she gets a chance, on her own but with arthritis in a knee mean...

Re: A few odd thoughts

Like most days I clicked on this forum, looked at the active topics and almost closed it. By the time I’d disregarded the long running threads and the stuff about the UK there was very little left.
