I'd rather move to Iceland TBF, not a warm weather person 😂

Iceland is cracking. Fancy a little holiday once this is all over with? I can spend the whole flight over there giving you a comprehensive run down of the history of nu metal.

Sounds awesome. I can feign interest for that amount of time, it's not exactly trans-Atlantic.

On our IcelandAir flight out there a couple of years back the entertainment centre had a wide range of Icelandic music. Can confirm it is EXACTLY what you imagine it to be like.

Cracking, cracking country. Once you get over only being able to buy booze at the government off-licences and paying 30 quid for a sandwich and coffee for breakfast that is.

I'm not adverse to a bit of Bjork, although I'll pack my own sandwiches so thanks for the heads up on that 😂

You're not wrong - it's the same as bloody Norway in that regard. Everything costs a fortune. The first time I ever went to Norway was to a place called Bergen, and I can still remember the horror of being told that a pint and a club sandwich was roughly £26. After I calmed down I went and bought a T-shirt from the local market that had a massive moose on the front, alongside the words 'Nordic Wildlife'. It was class.

Nor sure if he still is, but for a while Bruce Dickinson was a pilot for IcelandAir whenever Iron Maiden weren't touring. What a weird and wonderful place.

Also, what's the best classic car you've ever seen in Iceland?

Haha- i had uncannily the same experience in Bergen. Cheap easyjet flight over for a long weekend. 300 quid in pocket thinking that will see me and the other half through. Gone after the chinese meal, a couple of pints and a sausage roll.

The bar had a naked painting of the landlady literally above the bar. The most bizarre place.

Did you go to Sarawak/Sabah? I've never been to Sabah. Yet, taken the family to the cat city Kuching 3 times to enjoy it's unique etymology, tropical rainforests & fishing. Where a coffee & sandwich could set you back around a whopping quid. Last time there was March 2019, where they started jacking up the prices.

We went to kota kinabalu a few years ago, which was pretty nice (up near Brunei). It was a bit "resorty", but there was an orang sanctuary and some cool fireflies on the river.

Yes, both, and also a 3 day trip deep into the jungle south of Sandakan. Fantastic! Wild elephants, wild orang utangs, and many other birds, monkeys, and insects, snakes. etc. Also included 2 bloodsuckers, 1 on my leg and 1 on my back. Also slept in a longhouse from the head-hunters and drunk their self-distilled whisky. Boy was I drunk!

One of the best holidays I've ever had.

Off to Malta on Monday with Mrs Bazzer both double jabbed and apparently you don’t have to wear masks outdoors which will be great because of the heat but indoors you do and we will, I have an exemption badge but as a courtesy I shall wear a mask.
We both will take extra care whist we are out there for our own safety.
we are only going as it is now safer there than it is here.
