I am currently sitting by the Thames and the London Eye typing this. But I have accessed the forum in a jungle. How about you?

Er....a lot of places over half of Europe and the Antipodes, but nowhere particularly odd. Ooh, does Raffles in Singapore count!?

Beats my efforts, SS :D I've accessed the forum all over the world, often in the comfort of Airports, hotels, private homes etc. Probably the most "out there" for me would have been Mt Hagen in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

I remember Fort William. I went on a seal viewing boat trip, only to discover that all the grey rocks I'd been seeing from the car whilst driving up, were seals. Also my son, then 15 months old, spent every night escaping from the tent and had to be caught and put back in. He had hours of fun escaping, every night, and tying zips shut and double knotting tent flaps only slowed him and made his eventual escape more pleasing to him.
