Re: Flight delay compensation

Claim and sue for everything, it's your right ?? But no complaints that premiums have gone up! Good point Mouse. When my wife got her compensation it was kind of a bitter-sweet experience - Jet2 did treat them well, placing them into a hotel for a night and offered food vouchers etc. The kids enjoy...

Re: Flight delay compensation

My family last year had a Jet2 flight canceled from Paphos to Leeds - Jet2 advised that they are entitled for compensation. We used Bott and Co and got it relatively soon (minus 25% fee). This would not have happened if doing on our own - or maybe not until now. Bott and Co is a multiple award-winni...

Re: Mosaic Tiles

There is a mosaic workshop as part of the revamped Ibrahim Khan in the old town.
Worth having a look there. They are also running courses.

Re: Horseless carraiges.Petrol or Diesel?

5. Where is this MASSIVE INVESTMENT coming from? The company I work for, RDS, invests billions to get ready and be the leader for the EV revolution. It’s CEO and management team all drive EV or hybrid vehicles - quite a big deal considering that all the money RDS currently makes is still from hydro...

Re: Pachyammos Beaches

No barracudas this morning but a massive loggerhead turtle. I base my assessment on the following stats: [... The two most common species found in the Mediterranean Sea are the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta) and the Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas). Both species may be found in the Mediterranean, ...

Re: Pachyammos Beaches

Went for an early morning snorkelling tour at the Municipal Bath today and can highly recommend it. We have seen about 50 barracudas swimming in incredible formations, plenty of other fish and also a turtle. Later in the afternoon the barracudas were still there but the visibility is much worse comp...

That's also why you should be careful exploring places like Avakas Gorge after heavy rain. On the topic of rain and the Avakas gorge - we noted yesterday that the main car park at the entrance to the valley is no longer reachable as the crossing of the stream has been completely eroded away.

Re: Iran captures British Tanker

There are huge pipelines crossing the whole width of the KSA to the Red Sea and Duqm in Oman is prepared for Saudi crude export at the moment too. Problem is that despite being Arab “brothers” none of these states actually trust each other. The GCC is essentially dead with Qatar being boycotted for ...
