What? Who is Vaune Phan? She is 27 years old blogwriter from Singapore. And she did quite a ride from Singapore to Mt Everest Base Camp (north). It was 7500 km’s through Malaysia, Laos, Thailand and China. And she did this with Suzuki 250ccm!! All I can say is WOW! Find the story and the blog from here: http://vaunephan.blogspot.sg/2015/06/day-1-beyondeverest-its-official-flag.html
First I have to confess that this is my mistake! I didn’t read the conditions about making the change or cancelling the booking! But since I’ve been using booking.com quite many times (more than 50 bookings made!) I didn’t think this would be possible!
This guesthouse has this “special condition” about the cancellation (and possible changes). It says: “Please note, if cancelled or modified, 100 percent of the first night will be charged. Deposit: 100 percent of the first night may be charged anytime after booking.”
I made my booking in the beginning of december and then I cancelled it about 2 weeks later (and 7 months before the actual arrival time!!) So due to the regulations and this special condition I lost the whole amount of money already 7 months before I ever made any trip!!
This is not possible here in Finland! But maybe in Lithuania it is possible to cheat travellers like this! And for us motorcycle riders it is quite impossible anyway to make this in-advance bookings because you don’t know what happens tomorrow…
Here is the guesthouse: http://aismares.lt/
And here is their page in booking.com: https://www.booking.com/hotel/lt/aismares-guest-house.fi.html
If you’re using booking.com to find a place to stay, please always read the notes and conditions about cancellation or making changes to your booking!
I also put very negative feedback to trip advisor and google!
But this winter the southern parts of Finland have been very warm (so far) and today when it was time to make the old tradition in Turku at 12.00 -so called “The Declaration of Christmas Peace” there was maybe the biggest amount of motorcycles ever in the center of Turku!
About 30 bikes in this picture…
Sorry, this is only in finnish.
Suomalaisia kummituksia on tutkittu viime vuosina taas paljon. Kummitushaastatteluja on tehty Turun Linnassa, Vanajan Linnassa, Katajanokan vankilassa (hotellissa) jne. Ryhmä suhtautuu avoimesti kummistuksien olemassaoloon ja laitteillaan havaitsee ääniä ja välillä hahmojakin.
Hviträskiin on myös tehty pyyntö että päästäisiin kuvaamaan ja “haastattelemaan” mutta museo on toistaiseksi kieltäytynyt.
