UTE is an excellent vehicle that has enough power to carry heavy loads and people as well. UTE is really an Australian word which means utility autos. It is basically employed by people for shifting their residences and offices. If you are looking for a vehicle that can transport you home or office belongings from one place to another, then UTE will be an ideal choice for your task.
We're interested in the glassblowing area of Smaland. Our plane lands in Copenhagen and, of course, we want to see Copenhagen as well. Do you know if there is public transportation or a tour in the Smaland area or must we rent a car?
I kindly ask for some tips or the best ways on how to withdraw cash either from ATMs or bank booths. I rather pull out cash from booths than ATMs specially if you get charged with a so called comission fee per every single time you make a cash withdrawal.
I was in Thailand and I could withdraw money via CASH ADVANCE in the booths where people can actually cash traveller cheques, WU money orders, etc. and I got no extra charge by doing so; unlike when I just once withdrew money from an ATM that chraged me 180 thb.
Is it possible to withdraw money from bank booths in the same way? Do ATMs in Eastern Europe charge you every time you need to pull out cash with a comission fee?
On my way back from Euromeet 2015 and catching up with VT stuff. Great to see pics on the various meetings pages but some are a bit silly! I don't really want to see pics of somebody's cup of coffee.
Great to have member get-together pics but please, please, use your own pages, travelogues etc for generic pics.
Also - would it be possible for meeting pics to be arranged in folders, or somehow otherwise displayed so that we don't have to start from pic #1 every time??
I'm looking for our VT Fridge Magnets Club. I thought we had one.
Will all Fridge Magnets Lovers report please.
I take a weekly beginning yoga class that I really enjoy. However, the class before mine is a "hot" yoga class where the students come out looking as if they've been swimming. This morning they streamed out of the studio -- so many of them that they filled the small reception area -- and I wanted to say, "Ew, ew, ew! Don't come near me - you smell bad, you're dripping sweat everywhere, and it's really gross!" But since I couldn't, I just had to curl as far away from them as I could and hope that they'd get their stuff and get out of my way.
What have you wanted to say lately, but couldn't? Post it here, and maybe you'll feel better.
In the hospitality industry, turndown service refers to the practice of staff entering a guest's room and "turning down" the bed linen of the bed in the room and preparing the bed for use.
How do you feel about this service? Is it something you look forward to, or you get bothered when there is a knock on the door?
What was the most unexpected turned down service you had that got you excited?
Thank you beauty marlies hansi PJ and swant trekki belsent utswin Kirsty don Bernd L russell and lee petje and lena for my VT meet card, it was wonderful to receive it. Sorry if I could not read a lot of the names on the card to thank them.
We are doing well, all packed up ready to move so France is closer now. Have had a couple of operations so am on the mend now and will be ready to party soon. Sorry I have been away from VT for such a long time, you have no idea how busy I have been, hope to catch up with you all as soon as possible.
This has to have been asked/brought up before. But the following article made me ask:
Which seat do you prefer on a longer flight....let's say 4++ hours. Some may call that a short flight(which I do), but let's use that as a benchmark.
Me? Always the aisle. I prefer the "extra" legroom as I often stick my legs alongside(in the aisle) the seat in front of me when I know that we are not beings served, etc.
I also never mind being the one being asked to get up so that my seat mates can use the restroom. I usually have a few drinks on my flights and like being able to get up whenever I want.
And on much longer flights, being able to get up whenever and stretch is my preference...even when seat mates are sleeping. Also, getting up in the middle of the night for a snack/beer/restroom is key.
I always make sure that I am able to select my seats online/by calling the airline directly or via online check-in.
I have actually switched travel dates when I saw that aisle seats were not available.....just so that I would not have to be stuck in the "dreaded" middle or window seat.
I know that there are some that go goth the flow and are not concerned where they sit. Just curious.
Hi! I have a question related to the Hindi meaning of the word Dorius. I have found the word itself and the connection with Hindi, but I cannot find its meaning. Could anybody pls help me? Greetings from Slovenia! Maja
I'm planning on traveling to Central Europe again and I'm thinking of going to Slovenia. The pictures I've seen look nice and one travel review described Ljubljana as "the new Prague". I really love beautiful cityscapes and enjoy walking the streets of cities admiring beautiful architecture. As pictures and reviews can be deceiving I would like some honest opinion on whether Slovenian cities are actually really beautiful. Is Slovenia worth a visit? If so what cities should I visit?
Does anyone have a picture of inside the room door that shows the deal red/ yellow Del Rey logo with the checkout information
You know we have had oodles of rain in Texas in May. Part of Houston had 8+ inches yesterday in 6 hours - even the meteorologists reporting it had trouble believing it.
Up here in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, the rain has opened a sinkhole next to a runway at DFW Airport, apparently close enough to cause the airport to close the runway while they figured it out/repaired it.
So, while we are glad to have you come visit (bring umbrellas) or even change planes here, please don't be shocked if there are some minor delays today...see thescoopblog.dallasnews.com/...
You're welcome, from Texas, the soggy state.
I was checking out a bargain flight from California to Spain. It was a good price, so I was willing to put up with some inconveniences, like flying out of an airport that's not my favorite, having a 5-hour layover, and arriving in the middle of the night.
But other things started to make me uneasy. They quoted their prices in both euros and dollars, but when I double-checked the dollar prices on two different online currency converters, the airline's price was wrong. And their website kept changing my phone number and resetting my year of birth to 1915. (Don't I look good for someone 100 years old??)
The final straw, for me, was an additional fee of 50 euros for each checked bag. No deal, guys.
Have you had "deal breakers" - in travel, jobs, or relationships?
I'm on call for jury duty this week. Today (Monday) is a holiday, and my group number wasn't called for Tuesday, but I'll have to check the court website on Tuesday night to see if I have to appear on Wednesday. I'll be "on call" all week, through Friday,, and then they can't call me for another two years.
Do you have a jury system where you live? If so, how does it work? Have you ever served on a jury?
If you don't have a jury system, how are criminal trials handled?
Do you know of a place in Nieuwpoort Belgium where bicycles can be hire on day-to-day basis and what the cost per day is? Thank you!
Where did "Last Log-In Date" go on the individual member's pages?
I've posted in the Norway forum, but there are more of you around here, in Misc..so there might be a chance of someone knowing about this... On holiday in Norway, many years ago, we came across this area of numerous craters in the rock surface we were walking on... We had to tread very carefully to avoid falling down one! Our Norwegian hosts tripped across the area like mountain goats! My sister and I were terrified! They could have been on the island of Hvaler.. but I now can't remember..We were also in Oppdahl. Photo of me and sis peering down one in 1962!!
Referring to the people of Spain Spaniards or Spanish? Which is correct?
Like in Turkey ? Turks or Turkish ?
as in England British or English ?
Thailander or Thai ?
Would anyone know of any pottery studios in Madrid?
Not pottery classes—just a place where I can buy clay, sculpt figurines and have them baked in a kiln? :)
We understand that you have misplaced your normal rainfall. We found it in our backyard in Texas. Please come and get it...
If you have credit cards that earn miles or are a member of reward programs, how do you go about using the miles/points? I will purchase a plane ticket if it is cheap enough that I don't want to waste valuable miles on it - miles that could be put to much better use on another trip.
Just booked a trip to parts of China and my first ever organised tour as I may experience language difficulties there apart from major cities.
I've always liked to pre-plan and part of that has always been peering at Google Earth and then into their street view. Seems Mr Google and his vehicles with all the cameras have not visited China.
Does anyone know of a similar computer program where I can get street view in China please.
Thanks in advance

Credit card companies cover rental foreign car insurance as long as you use their credit card for 100% of the rental and it is under 31 days.
All you have to do is call the credit card company and give them the list of countries you will be visiting to double check they cover - ours are.
One requests a letter of authorization from the credit card company indicating their approval of insurance which you present to the rental agency (Sixt in our case).
MOST IMPORTANT: DECLINE the rental agencies Collision and Liability waiver coverage! If you accept ANY type of insurance from the rental agency your credit card company insurance becomes null and void. This is the hardest part as the people at the rental agency use high pressure tactics to get you to sign up for their expensive insurance
Hello to you all, sorry I have not been as active on VT as I usually am but such a lot has happened to me so far this year.
