      Thanks HELLSTAR, yes, as you can see we managed to go to La Rambla almost every day. We could not visit many of his master pieces.
      we visited the Sagrada Femilia Church, which is still under construction since 1909 and the museum dedicated to im.

      May be next years if i manage to be back for Mobile World Congress,

      The postcard depicting the poor Lufthansa service was very good and accurate. My Experience of Blr-Frankfurt onboard Lufthansa was equally bad.

My suggestions to fellow members - take Lufthansa only if you're left with no other option, including a ship journey (this I am exxaggerating, but I hope you got the idea)

      MWC 2012! Amazing trip you had!

      (Apologies if this thread meant to have no text - delete this post if you want to keep it in a certain way)

      yes, it was a good trip from the travel, learning, sight seeing, food, business meetings etc. Luftansa was just fine for me as i prefer to sleep during longhaul flights. As i had pre-booked my meal. i got waht i wanted, it was excellent.

      regarding some textual experience sharing, nothing specific to share. If you have any specific question about the images uploaded or the sights visited, please let me know, i will try to answer your questions.

      Mobile World Congress will move to a new location within Barcelona from next year, ofcourse, i will miss the FIRA. but it would be an opportunity to click some pictures of the FIRA without those ugly looking boards or exhibit booths.

      Who would’ve thought that Antarctica would feature in this list? Of course since it’s part of no country, no visa is required. However, you do need a permit to enter, visas for destinations enroute that you stop at, and a handsome budget. As most Antarctica flights and cruises depart from Argentina or Chile, you will need to show your passports in either country. You will also need to be prepared for any unscheduled stops in foreign lands, which could be the result of rough seas or all around bad weather.

      If you are looking beyond budget shopping in Thailand and the buzz of Singapore, set your sight upon Cambodia. The World Heritage Angkor Wat Temple complex lies within kissing distance of Siem Reap the closest airport, and the magnificent temples of Angkor are a living testimony to the architectural prowess of the powerful Khmer empire. Phnom Penh is the capital city of Cambodia, and is a wonderful mix of the east and west where the colonial charm still lingers.

      An island in the sun is what they call Mauritius, and rightly so! Brilliant blue sea, silver sands and lovely island people that welcome you with their warm hospitality, Mauritius is a wonderful vacation destination.

Whatever you do, Mauritius is a holiday like no other – come back relaxed and rejuvenated, ready to take on the world!

      Boy , an eye opener thread for me! Never thought that so many countries give Visa on arrival for Indian citizens. Thanks Nomad for sharing this info.

      However few years ago, one of my office colleagues had to suffer at Bankok International Airport. His flight landed at 3 am local time and immigration guy refused to stamp his Passport until morning if he does not give him a bribe of 50 dollars. I am not sure what is the current situation.

      I think this post of off-topic.

      Btw, are you sure they are authorized agents for processing this? Please understand that most of these operators are fraudsters and keep asking for money at various stages and finally end up providing a fake visa/documents. Suggest you to be extremely cautious about such agents who offer job visas abroad. A job has to be earned not bought.
