he didn't mention that he was in Canada, sent his address to me without country. I saw an all number postcode, state at the bottom was ON, so I assumed it was the US.

yeah no excuse on this one. Never usually bother with a return address, especially when its tracked and signed for.
he got it today anyway so its all good.

Quick FUK help needed…

Brother's bday today. He hasn't said he wants anything, so thinking to get him an experience gift voucher.

Any ideas of good experience days? Not car driving, did that once and it was pretty shit. Budget of £100, ideally in or around London / south east. He's not a foodie.

Did this for a stag the other day. Didn't think i'd be into it but it was fantastic fun.

Facilities are very impressive.

Has anyone jumped ship and regretted it? OnePlus 6T sounds like it's going to be pretty tempting.
