    im thinking i must be jinxed as on thursday, im of on holiday to the maldives and what happens some muppets drive a jeep into an airport,

    then 2 years ago i was going on holiday and the day before was the 7/7 bombings, so security high then

    and i was half way across atlantic the morning of 9/11 so was diverted

    im think someone is telling me something.

    i just hope nothing happens at manchester airport on thursday,

    but what ever happens im not letting a few individuals control my life and my freedom, ill still fly and travel

    i just tend to ignore it and try not to think about it, my gfriend loves flying but gets really scared when you see the sort of news we have been seeing plastered all over the tv/papers

    i have to try to reassure her that its a one in millon chance we would be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    if it happens it happens it would be out of my control to stop it,

    alan what resort you going too ? we have been twice now both times to Kuerdu in the north Atoll, if its your first time hope you enjoy it, my tip is go snorkelling or diving & if you have to go by seaplane to your resort then get your cam corder, digi camera out ASAP due to the condensation.

    im going to Dhonveli Beach & Spa (north atoll), we are going from airport via speedboat.

    i dont tink i will be able to go diving even though i have a padi certificate ,its only been 6 weeks after my op on it and it still bit swollen/bruised and im not sure i want to risk it (got hospital on monday to see what they say) , but i was using the holiday as part of my recovery as id be lay there in the sun resting it

    thanks for the tip about the camera, i always carry them in my hand luggage anyway
