Weather App Trumps: The Working Traveller vs Travelfish

Weather App Trumps: The Working Traveller vs Travelfish

We have been using Travelfish lately to read up for our upcoming Southeast Asia trip.  Founded and edited by husband and wife team Stuart McDonald and Samantha Brown, Travelfish is a travel guide to Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Though based between a volcano and the sea in Bali last we heard Stuart was in Singapore so it is against the island state that we throw down our weather related challenge. On a head to head (Thursday to Tuesday) comparison the score is:

The Working Traveller (nr Izmir) 0 – 5 Travelfish (Singapore)

Weather App Trumps Working Traveller v Travelfish

This is the second Weather Apps Trumps we have lost in a row and enough is enough. Though we do not wish Stuart or Samantha to witness yet another sweary online meltdown this week we have no choice but to channel John O’Nolan John Sitton for our post match analysis:

“That is the fucking straw that broke the camel’s fucking back and that is typical fucking Izmir! You’ve had two performances and you think “I’m fucking Bertie Big Bollocks tonight, I’ll fucking play how I like!”. But you won’t play how you like, because if you play how you like I’ll stick the fucking youth team in.”

“You, you little cunt, when I tell you to do something, and you, you fucking big cunt, when I tell you to do something, do it. And if you come back at me, we’ll have a fucking right sort-out in here. All right? And you can pair up if you like, and you can fucking pick someone else to help you, and you can bring your fucking dinner. ‘Cos by the time I’ve finished with you, you’ll fucking need it.”

    New to this – do you just compare temperatures? Looking at those two, 24-29ºC and sunny seems bloody awesome to me!

  2. Hi Peter, we just compare temperatures but really it is a way of highlighting another website or blog that may interest our readers.

    We may have lost this one but the temperatures in the Izmir area are still pretty good – we’re certainly not complaining.

    Yah, figured as much. But you know, it’s a competition and I’m competitive, so I like to know the rules 😉

    1. No rules really. Though I’m tempted to compare the weather with the colder places we used to live and shout ‘in your face, Wales,’ every week I try to make sure we win some, lose some.

      In theory the idea is to pick the first person I see on twitter that mentions their location but so far I’ve chosen the sites I’ve been poking around most recently.

      So, where in the world are you, Peter? Melbourne?

      1. Peter

        Yeah, Melbourne. Where the weather forecast is basically meaningless 🙂

          He he. I’m not going to peek as I think next week it will be The Working Traveller Vs Travellerspoint.

        2. Peter

          Ah well, the other part of TP is in Oslo. I think I’ll take my chances with Melbourne 😉

  4. Melbourne or Oslo? Drat! Why didn’t I wait until you revealed that bit of information.
