Thought for the day…” It is better to be looked over than overlooked” (Mae West). ” Never test the depth of the water with both feet”.
Never understood why some countries make it difficult and expensive for TOURISTS to visit. Tourists bring in money, create jobs and also help to develop a country. Tourism, within reason, is not a bad thing, and countries like New Zealand depend upon it. New Zealand makes it easy for tourists, and gets lots of them. But the bottom line is that tourists bring money into a country. I had details of some good offers on Swiss Airlines (great airline too, so no hesitation in flying with them), including to India. India is another one of those countries which likes to make things difficult for people just wanting to visit as a TOURIST. Not only is there all the hassle of forms, possible interviews and questions which go far beyond reasonable (is it really important what my mother’s maiden name was?), but you also have to pay a large amount of money for the privilege as well. Compare that to many countries where all you need is a valid passport when you arrive. Guess where I am NOT going??
And another photo of Norway in beautiful weather again (of which there has been lots this year). Warm temperatures, no wind and cloudless days…can this be Norway??
and another photo out of the archives…a traditional house bus in New Zealand……
