Re: Tickets: Check before you cancel!

Professorabe ·
British Airways are trying their best to hold on to their customers' money. We have had 4 flights from Frankfurt to London cancelled by them (on two separate bookings). Whilst by law they should simply refund the money to the credit card, they send you links involving only 'travel vouchers' and phone numbers with automated messages directing you to the same vouchers. It is extremely difficult to find anything to do with actual refunds, but I am persisting. I also am pursuing claims under EU...

Re: Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us at TravelGumbo!

DrFumblefinger ·
GarryRF, You must try the King (Elvis Presley's) favorite sandwich. Peanut butter and banana, fried in butter. Forget about the cholesterol -- give it a go. It's much better than it sounds! Part of the joy of traveling is trying the food. Like "pudding" with your full Irish breakfast (don't ask if you don't know). I remember driving through rural southern Australia and seeing the following sign at a restaurant: "Bugs, $10". I don't know about you but I wouldn't pay anything for a plate of...

Re: Jetlagged in Rome

DrFumblefinger ·
I've never thought of combining zucchini blossoms and anchovies on a sandwich. The combination would have to be either really terrific or really bad. Which was it?

That sounds absolutely gorgeous ! Love finding foods I've never tried. Nothing better than a bacon sandwich, toasted and some HP on the side. One thing you never get when you travel - decent bacon. No - Turkey is not the same ! And some Vintage Canadian Cheddar. Hmmm....

The "Peameal bacon" sandwich has received a lot of attention on a number of the Food Channel shows. If you like the taste of bacon, you'll certainly love the sandwich. The cornmeal on it has a minor impact on its taste.

Re: A Visit to Ireland: Part 6) Slea Head. A Tour of the Dingle Peninsula

rbciao ·
Slea Head on The Dingle Peninsula is one of my favorite places in the world, even though it is not in Italy. The Slea Head Cafe is also one of my favorite places for a latte, a brownie, and the VIEW. The coffee and dessert. Between Sea Head and Dingle Town is the Stonehouse Restaurant, which overlooks the Dingle Bay. The crabmeat sandwich on brown bread was really good along with the view.

Re: Alligator, Everglades National Park, Florida

Former Member ·
It is funny that we tend to think of all animals as "he". Could be a lady gator. You were wise to give him or her your respect and distance. Most wild animals have no interest in two legs, The natural instinct is to hide or run. The exception is when they have been given treats in the past. He or she was probably trolling for tossed treats, not you. If you were the gator, would you rather nibble on salty you or a nice deli sandwich ?
