Suggestions for things to in Porto.  There this weekend.

Do a port tour/tasting. Think it was Graham’s we went too but I assume they’re all similar. If you fancy some less than widely available cuisine there is a really nice Mozambique restaurant in the old town n all. Class city although you will be sore in the calf.

Turkey on Friday, first time in Turkey and first time on holiday for me and the wife without my son (he's 15 and apparently far to cool to go away again with his parents)

Ha ha, he's at my parents who are much stricter than me and my wife and his bedroom at their house is set up to meet his every need for 10 days, I need to concentrate on finding a pub to watch the match apparently we are 5km from the beach and town.

Nowt to suggest re etiquette, it's a cool place and tbh I  think they're used to stags.

The Folkklub on Peldu iela is a fantastic bar.

Just have a look on Google Flights https://www.google.com/travel/flights?tcfs=&ved=0CAMQyJABahcKEwjY99inxYTkAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQAQ&ictx=1&hl=en&gl=uk#flt=/m/0j7ng..2019-08-31*./m/0j7ng.2019-09-04;c:GBP;dm:9;e:1;ls:1w;m:c.0;sd:0;t:e&tcfs=

Yeah, no flights to Croatia. I’ll look at others.

I’m flying from London but trying to make it easier for my mate.

That’s a class idea, didn’t realise there was a direct flight. But it costs £1000 so probably out.

I know, but it turns out only at very specific times. Worked out it was one flight a week on Sunday, that I can see so far. That might work TBF.

Newcastle is a very small airport.  If your struggling with flight dates then you are out of luck.

I'd suggest Palma de Mallorca as a city visit.

Jeez that is steep. I'm going with the wife at the end of September and paid around £900 each for flights and a week in a 5 star all inclusive hotel. Only booked about 6 weeks ago.

Any tips/advice on booking flights to Australia? My mate's just flown over there today, working as a doctor for a year at least and we're planning to go and visit in March-ish.

Ideally we'd want to break the flight up and stop somewhere for at least a night each way but given we're only going to be there for two/two-and-a-half weeks due to getting time off work, I'm mindful of being in Australia for as long as possible. Most flights seem to land at 9/10pm so with the journey time, time difference and stop factored in, it seems like you're doing yourself out of nearly three days.

Where's best to stop? (Ruling out Hong Kong as it stands!)

Any advice is appreciated!
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too
