COVID19 testing

Re: Anyone wants to ship car from Kyrgyzstan to Europe?

I'd be very careful using Iron Horse Nomads for anything. I experienced very uneven results when doing business with them a year ago, and they never seemed to care when they were making mistakes.

Re: Uzbekistan Airways official site?

I booked on an on-line travel agency (BudgetAir) and it all went fine. Mind you, there was no online check-in. Also worth mentioning that my experiences with Uzbekistan Airways have been, shall we say, dismal. On par with the old JAT in the early 2000s with the cabin crew smoking in the galley. Whe...

That's a selfish, narrow minded perspective. You don't care that you'll (eventually) be a burden to some other country's health care system?

Re: Trip Itinerary

Airline routes & fares are not some highly guarded secret. Some very basic searches on your search engine of choice will answer these questions. And since fares change often, asking people to search for a fare and post it in this forum is pointless.

I'd pretty much given up trying the MC as it never worked in any ATM I tried, so was very shocked when the money appeared! No MC sticker on the machine. That is truly surprising. I att...
