Hello to any of my ex Bongo friends on here. Thanks brightly for pointing me in this direction. I have joined the new Facebook forum but I find it hard work and very disjointed. Come over here to find some sanity in these troubled times. Looking forward to getting back to my lodge on Anglesey more than anything. I think hotels and cruises( I have had 2 cancelled this year) are likely to be on the backburner for this year. Thank goodness for lifetime status! Give me a shout anybody out there who knows me.

It's good to see a familiar name from Insiders, Brilin!

Ditto to what wsm78 said.

Wotcha Brian, good to see you here, you’ll find it somewhat different from Insiders but the forum setup and blogging is familiar, the hair-trigger antispam is somewhat boring, though fairly understandable bearing in mind the lack of barriers to joining...

>the hair-trigger antispam is somewhat boring

TP's anti-spam becomes much, much less 'hair-trigger' once someone has become an established member of the site. Which, imo, is exactly the way it should be. :-)

The algorithm tracks your participation on the site and advances you through levels - you've already gone from first time poster to new member to budding member. The automated anti-spam isn't going to be troubling you guys for long. :)

Thanks everyone for your welcome. I just escaped from Fuertaventura ahead of the total lockdown. But have now had the second of my 2 cruises on Cunard's Queen Elizabeth cancelled due to lockdown. I think now my International travelling for this year may well be over unless I can sneak in a trip to Krakow for New Year. I think when this dies down I will stick to travelling to some of the places in the UK that I still want to visit and start my International travelling again next year with a trip to Australia, Pacific Islands and Singapore in March 2021. I also can't wait to get back to my lodge on Anglesey to walk my dogs on the wonderful beaches.

Like you, I’m really eschewing international travel this year, but am hoping to manage some UK-centric tourism - I still have the Marriotts in Bournemouth and Ware to visit and complete my “all UK Marriotts task” - Ha! Yeah, not happening! If things do lift we’ll probably concentrate on the Lake District or the Northern Marches. Don’t discount Scotland!

If it isn't my namesake from the London TU&T.

As soon as the world is back to normal again, I'm going to have to hop the pond again for another visit, maybe up north this time. If we can convince Norman to come down, we could probably pull together most of the group from last year and spend a lot less money per pint. I know BrightlyBob wouldn't say no to another pub crawl.
