    Greetings from a freezing Dublin!

    Hope you have a lovely luscious lunch. I’ll raise a glass to you on the 13th.

    Safe travels to all.

    The dinner was a big success. 7 relative strangers sat together for a feast (thanks to donkeyasia). The group represented 5 countries, Thailand, UK, UAE, Singapore and India. Fantastic restaurant, where the wine and conversation flowed. The strangers ended the evening having become friends.

    We are going to try and keep this event going on an annual basis.

    I know not everyone on the Forum is interested in meeting or arranging dinners. But for those that are interested, they are pretty easy to arrange, great fun.. and there are so many location possibilities…

    Glad you all enjoyed the occasion. I trust nobody took any E-cigarettes along.

    I think there’s at least a couple of people who would enjoy a get together in CPT and I would be happy to organise that and would suggest a venue at one of my favourite wine farms. On a practical note lunch might be better, firstly to enjoy the lovely views and secondly because a lot of people understandably don’t want to drive back to town at night. Alternatively we could arrange accommodation near or even at the wine Farm, the one I have in mind has a boutique hotel on site which is about R1400 a night.

    I just want to also say the meet up in Bangkok was an excellent evening, full of anecdotes plenty of specialist conversation and awesome food and perhaps one or two glasses of wine thank you donkeyasia brilliantly arranged

    When you have 7 interesting people sat around a table who travel to the extent we do, some of the stories, ideas and direction have been duly noted and already have been added to my repertoire which is wonderfully enriched by the experience

    I am already looking forward to next years meet up

    I will add my thanks to all who organised & participated in the event. It was a most interesting experience, that I found very enjoyable.

    Cape Town next year sounds very good – I plan to be there in early December, so that might work nicely!

    apologies i had to bail out at the last minute, was looking forward to it but the customer comes first, which was unfortunate as i got hit with food poisoning when i could have been in BKK!

    FDOS, if my schedule fits ooop north would be ok for me

    Mmmmm, there’s not much further “ooop north” I can go Steve !! : )

    I’m up for a meeting up north depending on how far north. At this time of the year am not inclined to go into the frozen wastes of the Arctic!

    Are we talking Phnom Penh? Hanoi? when we say “ooop north”? If not sounds “cold” 🙂

    Guys

    Very sorry that I could not attend.

    The news I received on the 31st October meant that I had to cancel all business travel for the rest of 2017.

    I did have a trip booked to China, Japan, Korea and Philippines and had booked my return flight to the UK from BKK but sadly of course, it didn’t happen.

    Glad to hear that all was well and the evening a success.

    Cheers
    ST
