Not quite as glamorous as Europe but I'll be heading out to Colorado at the end of the month for the Colorado Brewers Festival and I am stoked about that.  Get to see my parents new digs while I'm out there too.

Getting on alright Taylor, just arrived having a few beers at the hostel then gunna hit the sack. Brazil was quality, Rio first but probs one too many days which wudda been useful in paraty. Im basically just sampling the night life in different.    places. All I did in Sao paolo for 2.5 days was get p*ssed and go to a football museum. Weird though, in the club, they give u a credit card and you pay at the end of the night. Dangerous

Just booked flights to Venice for a few days in September. Then I saw the price for a Gondola ride is 80 euros for 40 mins   :yikes:

From what I've heard anything remotely touristy in Venice or Rome is scandalously expensive.

Ronaldo- noted. The best I tried out there was the Cohiba Siglo IV. Also found the Romeo y Julieta 1 to be very relaxing and picked up a bunch of those in tubes for about £1.50 each at a cigar factory. All bona fide of course. Watching them get rolled was a surprisingly interesting process, a great skill.

Special mention to the Cuban people who I found to be some of the warmest and friendliest people I've ever met. I was glad to get out of the hotel and see the real country and despite the usual hassle from beggars and hustlers, the people were great. Despite their obvious lack of wealth, they couldn't do enough for you.

We went last year and it was fantastic. We went too Cayo Coco so not too much too do on the Island, but it waas great when we went into Havana and the Dolphins too (forgot the name of the place).

One thing I was let down by was the quality of the Mojitos. I was expecting them to be killer but they were a bit of a let down.
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

Mojitos at our hotel were pretty good. Full stem of mint and not OTT on the sugar.

Holguin cigar factory. Felt slightly uneasy at the rather sweat house nature of it but the prices for top quality cigars was incredible. Blokes were coming out with boxes. I'm not a regular (at all) cigar smoker so only got ten plus some even cheaper ones, Hoyo de Monterrey Coronations, again tubed, for about a quid a pop.

Good stuff, I really want to go to South America, I'll have to get some tips off you when I come to planning it.

Going there as part of the interrail trip, absolutely daft as the idea is to keep it cheap but nevermind. We're staying in a hostel for £19 a night, looks alright, on Venice island, not too many robberies (:lol:). Happy to just wander about for a couple days tbh.

They have a tourist tax of about 3 euros per person per night, f***ing scandalous that is! As if they don't rip you off enough.
I am currently happy. Its weekend. Time to unwind after a stressful work days.

If I'd known I'd have literally given you £500 and told you to fill a suitcase with them. I pay £230 for boxes of 25 every couple of months.

Yep, both are.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

You can get them in the Cuban cigar shop in town for around £8 a pop, which is slightly cheaper than what you're paying.

Definitely recommend Riga and/or Tallinn for a city break. Nice places to ample about, decent food (particularly Tallin), cheap and plentiful types of beer/spirits and friendly locals. All good. Helsinki was canny n all, not a great deal too see but was worth a day trip on the boat, had some lush fish there too.

Cuban Cigar Shop, Grainger Street. Lovley little shop. Apparently its the only place outside of London that has a licence to smoke indoors. Not sure how true that is. Anyways -

just been told all I've to do is email my camp director and I can go back from the end of the month onwards.  Not paid while I'm there as I don't have a Visa but flights and bus upstate paid for, all food etc included if I'm bored and kicking my heels at home.  Apparently they're still lightly staffed and will happily take on someone with 2 years of experience.  If the job/work experience hunt hasn't stepped up by then I might as well take it.
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.
