Anyone been to Toulouse? Found cheap flights and a cheap but cool-looking Air B&B for next week.

Went there for one game of the Euros - but was staying outside Toulouse, except for the day of the game itself so not best placed to tell you a huge amount about the city.  Interesting city from what I saw wandering around, but didn't really do a lot of sightseeing per se so unhelpfully can't recommend much there.

If you are there for more than a weekend, worth trying to see Carcassonne.

If you're going next week, and if you ski, you'll be able to go to Andorra I'd imagine.

I'm heading out to Vegas in May with my dad, I have 5 free days outside of poker tournaments that I have to play so wondering if we have any members who live there or know it well ?

Decent places to eat/drink/get lashed that aren't too extortionate ? Also I've heard different rumours on drinking in casinos, I've been told alcohol is free in the casino so long as you tip the waitress $10/$20 the first time and they'll just look after you all night? Or do you tip them 1 or 2$ each time? Or is this all just bullshit and you pay for your drinks like you do anywhere else? :lol:

On top of spending a day heading down to the GC, look in to old Vegas up on Fremont. You'll be able to get much better food and much much better prices than a lot of garbage on the strip. It feels more like an actual town when you're up on Fremont and it's very old-school Vegas, especially with the Neon Graveyard that's up that way, which is super cool.

Aye, it's lush, or at least used to be. Think I went in 2008 or thereabouts, so not really sure if it's changed or not. Really liked the atmosphere around the place. There were loads of backpackers from all over the World.

I think you'll have to fly to Santorini and go on the ferry to Ios from there.

I'd love to go back someday

Man United haven't had this much of a squad overhaul since 1958

Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???
