    Just booked one of our hotels for our trip to Norway. :)

    We're planning a trip to Finland and then Norway. In Norway we're going from Oslo to Flam to Bergen. Should be good!
    I may take the GF to Vegas this summer. Were about to do the preliminary research. She's gone there before and wants to go back.

    Rue, to answer your question from earlier, I wouldn't mind visiting Italy (Venice and Rome), Norway, Finland, Holland, Amsterdam, Sweden, Spain, France (Paris), Great Britain (London),

    I guess there's quite a few countries I'd like to visit.. Mostly northern Europe though.

    None of my apps worked in China. They block everything. Occasionally some stuff would trickle through...got most of my notifications as soon as I landed in Malaysia.

    2c on China trip. They have really transformed Shanghai. The road and rail infrastructure is awesome. They are developing their Tier 2 cities as well. I went to Suzhou for a day. The price of development is the terrible haze/smog over the entire place. Slightly clear skies near the Pudong airport due to the vicinity to the ocean/river delta.

    Traffic was quite bad as well. Took 65 minutes to travel 5Km on Thursday evening after work. The rains on Wednesday and Thursday did nothing to clear the hazy skies...

    If you need any information or inspiration on any of those places let me know. Norway is this year but I've been to the rest and lived in two. :) Well, I'm still living on one. :P

    Denmark and Germany are pretty nice as well. Estonia old town is rather nice too and easily reached from Helsinki, Finland.

    I know from a money point of view it isn't cheap. When I used to travel from Australia to anywhere it was painful.

    You did say you were a chef did you not? Maybe I can convince the wife to let you stay with us for whatever time to wanted. As long as you cooked once or twice. :) :P

    My wife has this fantasy of having friends like Jamie Oliver. :P

    We tend to be the cooks, of the people we know so far. We're a little different with what we cook though. :)

    I'm thinking either next year or the year after to do a trip to the US. Go to some different places. I'll have to visit the family of course. I wouldn't mind going to Vegas again for a day or two. I really want to get to San Francisco and Utah.

    Morning folks. Busy day at work today...we've got one of community partners in the office.

    For this partner, once every two months we all them to bring in patients and get seen - kinda like their own special Saturday clinic. Of course, regular walk in Saturday clinic still happens too and I get patients referred to me from both.

    Good thing the GF and I may go get Indian food after work.

    Carrier ROM on the phone is the cause. That's also why WiFi tethering doesn't work.

    Typically with a true CV or a true unlocked OEM, you put your SIM in, and as long as it is data active, it automatically downloads the settings - with or without a prompt. I plugged in my SIM in the Z Ultra and the settings automatically downloaded. I plugged my SIM into the Z3 and I had to manually enter the settings for data and MMS - a hallmark trait of a carrier branded phone.

    Just to tie up this point: my 930 is a more of a truer CV (French). Even though it has the French carrier apps on it, the settings automatically downloaded. Some European countries have their phones like that.

    My white 920 was a true CV - Polish. No bloat at all. So was the 925 and 1520.3.

    Telus I read on Xperia blog has some issues with conforming to the hotspot standard in Canada, that's why WiFi tethering isn't working. Gonna test it on the Z3 later because I got an update yesterday and Sony stated they were working on a fix.

    It's little things like these makes me avoid carrier phones like we avoided Sahib back in the day when her used to prattle on and on and one about his ex...

    I am indeed. If and when I ever decide to take a vacation and make a trip across the pond, consider it a deal.
