• Hm. Gotta say I quite like it. I’ve seen less sympathetic architecture in spectacular locations in my time. Other than that, the “wellness DNA” is just pure BS, as is the notion that they can be energy self-sufficient from the national grid, let alone add to it, in Norway&r...

  • Not SQ, but Scoot fly to ATH (plus BER). Yes, the transit is now painless, but if you want to break the trip & spend a day or two there, mainly eating :-), then the hoops to jump through are a pain. At least from later this month, they don’t want a pre-arrival test. But there’s st...

  • Great news! Now if only the various countries we need to transit to get to Greece, would do likewise, our joy would be complete.
