Doom and Gloom

Everyone seems to be p..d off what with the shacks and sunbeds and now the sim cards, taxi rip off,s and so on, lets put things into perspective.

On our first visit to Candolim we used a shack once on a friends advice and did not enjoy it at all, so , we never used a shack after that for two weeks and it didn,t kill us. We do use the shacks all the time now but I,m sure we would manage to enjoy ourselves without or on our own towel or beach mat.

Sim cards....use a phone booth for a couple of days it,s no big deal.

Last year dry days, we went out earlier.

Taxi rip offs....use the bus whenever possible or get a good driver and stick with him.

Don' t forget we are Brits after all, enjoy your holiday, Ted.

I intend to enjoy my holiday Ted, whatever rules they bring up, it's just a bit disheartening when you read some things on the forum.

We are renting a house with a rooftop terrace so it looks like I might be filling the fridge with drinks and just going down to the shack for lunch. Think it could be a cheap holiday, especially with no sellers ;-)

We use the buses and they are so cheap and great fun, if you've never tried them, it's a must!
