Re: How has the Coronavirus Pandemic affected You?

South-eastern Australia: Went to the shops today, first time in a week after commuting to work only for the past week, which is the ordinary routine anyhow - for now. I was pleasantly surprised with my experience. Traffic and people was about half the usual. Everything was still open for business. E...

Re: How has the Coronavirus Pandemic affected You?

I’ll just be brief for now, as I’ll probably have an update during or post weekend. Still required to commute to work. Buying grocery supplies has been a problem, but I haven’t ventured out to any shops now for nearly a week - I’ve been too busy at work, but yes, I am very grateful I still have a jo...

Re: Your 2020 Booked/Flown Flights

Cancelled next trip due to the pandemic. At least my decision to travel or not became a lot clearer this week. Parts of the sectors would likely have been cancelled on me anyway. Thankfully I was there 3 months ago - and this was a discretionary trip. Still doesn’t make the process any easier. Tough...

Daylight saving. It starts too late, and ends way too late. We’re currently first weekend in October and first weekend in April in some states in Australia. The end part has been messed about with. Used to be early March, then late March, now its April. This clock interference has been a bone of con...

Re: Eurus Australis: one afternoon of travelling across South-Eastern Australia during that summer of 2019-20

It was not my intention to do a report on these short routine trips. However, amid a season of unprecedented weather, and my first go-around in a commercial airliner, I felt the need to share my thoughts. This is also why I haven’t got a lot of photos for a trip report, by my own standards. The amo...

People not using their headlamps when it rains. Same at dawn and dusk, especially when they’re driving a black car. This seems to be happening more frequently nowadays - very concerning.
