Mm money goes a lot further in Bolivia too. Was planning on coaching it and then getting the death train

What's the death train may I ask?

something about people with yellow fever being transported on it back in the day, cant remember exactly

How much do you reckon Vegas will cost?

depends how much your willing to gamble. check out expedia for hotels. prices double over the weekend. we 5* it midweek then stayed in travelodge over a weekend. nights out arent cheap either cant remember exactly, but you can always just drink at your hotel first or something. entrance to the nice places aint cheap

Aye, just do a bit of gambling and you can get all the free drink you want. Works out dead expensive if you buy drinks everywhere.

Gotta tip them, and it does mean you have to be sitting at a table gambling. Can turn out quite expensive

Where's the best place to look for cheap weekend cottages/chalets etc?

A bunch of us from Uni want to have a weekend away in July/August, but not at this holiday park bullshit. Google searches didn't do much - I just don't know where to look. I know you can get cheap ones on Ebay but I don't trust that site!

So yeah....direct me somewhere!

Not got anything booked for this summer yet.  Gonna wait and see who Dundee United and Newcastle get in Europe and hopefully travel to an away tie each.

Also looking into France v Scotland in the Six Nations in Paris next March.  I have no love for rugby and i'm not remotely patriotic but i've always wanted to visit Paris and the rugby's a good excuse.

I went to Parisa this March for the France v England game.

Great weekend. However, the stadium is in a shithole of an industrial site, and its a bugger to get out from. With basically everyone getting on the train.

Apart from that, it's a great place to go and a great excuse to use :thup:

It was a nice little warm up for me going to the British Lions tour of Austrlia next summer :fwap:

Would it not be better to go somewhere new? With dubai I think once youv done it youv done it. Each to their own, but its not cheap that money could be used to go somewhere else very decent

good man!  f***ing love that place.  Bourbon Street is areet but canny tacky, better to head off down near the French Market where theres more jazz bars.  Have a hurricane and hand grenade or 10 for me though!

No idea if you've had alligator before, but if you haven't, get it blackened rather than fried, much nicer.  Gumbo and shrimp po'boys are also an absolute must.
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

This time last year I was in Magaluf drinking in BCM square watching charvers with caps on fall off the bull, no lads holiday organised this year as everyone has houses, babies, and stuff like that. Although Newcastle getting into europe has opened the door for a little weekend away. :aww:

Going to Turkey in September with the lass.

Aye. Just felt I did it at the same time as you and you came out tops every time. Just in a bad mood now after Pixelhax.

Have to get this out now:

Pixel you're either hacking with the demo, or you're too f***ing good to constantly hammer us to the ground with it every time we play. Starts to take the p*ss a bit. I mean, I don't want you to not enjoy the game, but at the same time I'd quite like to enjoy playing it too.

Arg is better IMO as you're in amongst it but you see the whole panorama of it from Brazilian side.

Do both if youre going.

Like the other reply you should take a trip to Auschwitz but what really stood out in my visit to Krakow is the Salt Mines, truly amazing! This is the link on Wikipedia but it doesn’t do it justice http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wieliczka_Salt_Mine

It’s all about 200metres underground and it really is something else.

For drinking you should try the Kashmir (old Jewish Quarter) which is really cool.

You’ll have a great time in Krakow, I’ve travelled a lot and it’s one of the best places I’ve ever been. Really friendly people, good food, prices are fairly cheap and also a good place to relax.
