    Fruit and nut
    Anadin (much powerful pharmacin darling)

    When the missus travelled back home for a few weeks in April, she took a fully inflated full size plastic football. It literally stuck out the side of the bag and its not as if you can't buy them there! We were about the 2nd to check in, just as well as she wasn't too fussed about the weight of her luggage and at that stage, neither were the airline!

    Four Wooly jumpers
    Adapter for a mobile that doesn't work.

    oh yes, she then emptied one of the suitcases so she could fill it with the kids toys...

    So the first comment I made when we got to the Hotel was yes you guessed it. ' erm where are my things?????

    And of course LOS is well known for being a outfitters for

    stevem,

    I have also taken Egg Poachers out to expat mates in the past one of whom said he needed 5 which resulted in him selling to bars who do English breakfasts

    Get in quick as he has covered Pattaya already via me and others at rather higher prices than Argos here and looks like I may be an Egg Poacher trafficker
    Regards

    Makes perfect sense - I would be taking the same to Australia if I lived in Switzerland ( As well as some secteares/ pruning shears - my brother works on a vinyard in Aust and good quality pruning implements are hard to find)

    Always take crumpets and latest newspaers when I go to Thailand - for the old boys who are stuck out there..
