Looking forward to my 4 day trip to Bratislava/Vienna tomorrow. Not drank at all in January, so feeling fresh and ready for a good session.

Found some class cheap bars in Bratislava, the castle looks decent. Vienna looks canny too. Can't knock £31 return fights  ;)

That'll be a cracking little trip, I really liked being in Bratislava. Would recommend doing the UFO tower (it's just a viewing deck) if you plan to sight-see. Which you might as well cos it's only small.

Just booked a three night stay in Istanbul with the waff (honeymoon) before we go to the mother in laws house in Icmeler - keeping it economical. Been to Icmeler loads but Istanbul is a new one - anyone who's been have any tips on things to do outside of the usual tourist fayre. Places to eat and bars would be much appreciated too O0

Such a beautiful place, surprised it's not more popular. Guess it's due to it not being the typical Spain beach-holiday kinda place.

Enjoy :thup:

I'd recommend flying in one airport (Tokyo/Kansai) and out of the other so you're not going back on yourself.

I actually did that just by being a cheap b******. Ended up on a slightly wonky set of flights just to avoid shitty times and extortionate prices.

On the way there: London - Bejing - Heneda
On the way back: Narita - Chendu - London

This Coronavirus thing needs to f*** off soon like. Not liking my chances of making these flights if it keeps going.

Aye, I've wanted to go for a while. It's just a bit of a chew on to get too, especially from the barren NE. Having a weekend stopping in Seville n all on the same trip. Hopefully one of the teams will be at home to someone decent.

I could happily go to Spain every summer tbh, absolutely love it.

Apart from the horrible hangovers/drink anxiety - really enjoyed the holiday. Bratislava was good, loved the "Man at Work" artwork near our apartment. We met some cool locals in bars/cafes that were cool and friendly. We ate really well, there was a tremendous cafe/bar near us, the breakfast was out of this world. Felt busier on Friday then Saturday in Bratislava which was weird. Vienna was beautiful, some lovely buildings. Went on a cultural walking tour - was a lot of fun - we got some great shots.

About to fly back to Newcastle from Schiphol. Just spent three days in Amsterdam for my 30th. Did a load of touristy stuff, went off the beaten path a bit, drank an ocean's worth of Chocomel and ate some amazing food.

Also proposed to wor lass and she said yes so that was cool too.

Edit: @Papavasiliou you cheeky c***

Was in Naples over the weekend, such a fascinating place. Loved it. The streets were exactly as crazy as I was promised. :lol:

Also managed to eat 5 pizzas over 3 nights which ranks amongst my finest ever achievements. The marinara at Starita :sweetjesus: Even the pizza from Vesi was tremendous.
