Oh sh... Well at least it is not lost.
I've had numerous package written "France" and they always arrived safe and sound (even with DHL).
Any chance that they offer you the cost of this non delivered package?

Well, it seems, that Reunion is not really considered as France at all. I had to buy a worldwide shipping today for 46,99€... Hopefully this time it'll arrive at you, Gniaffron

Default Gasp!

Four. Tee. Six. Nine. Nine?

Has swish transmuted into lead?
Have the mafia infiltrated the post office?
Did a man in a dark alley frank the package and then laugh as you turned away?

Man. Vestlenning won't be feeling so bad.

40 Euros down the drain.. at DHL!

At the Post, there´s "Großbrief International" - BY AIR MAIL!

500g: 3,50€
1kg: 7,00€
2kg: 17,00€


I´d go to them su ckers and have a word with the boss...

It is almost 1kg, and I think, having in mind the history, I should have a tracking number... all in all, the idea is worth more than this... and honestly, here in Germany we could save 2-3 times the shipping costs having the Swish in Mihla... I don't care (so much).. so it'll be fine... ... ... we should have taken more vidz and photos with us shooting the swish... (I would have liked to, but my Paintballs arrived too late)

That's the spirit:

“We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives,
Who thinks most, feels noblest, acts the best.”

Amen.

Hey all!
It still didn't show up And I'm leaving for Nepal today... However there will be someone to pick it up if it arrives when I'm not here... I'll give you an update in 10 days-ish!

When I saw you were on today’s posts my heart skipped a beat. Hopes dashed. Now that I’ve picked myself up again I’ll just go can hunting.
