Topic: Holiday thread

We seem to have lots of version of this, but this the true home of thread about upcoming holidays, trips and short breaks (because I am slightly obsessed with hearing about them).

To get you started I have the following booked:

North Yorkshire Moors at the end of the month, with a twist of the countryside south of Chester on the way back.  Is going to be walking, cycling and drinking bitter-tastic.

Valencia in September.  Is going to be wandering around in the sun, drinking horchata and being a bit lazy-tastic.

Bergamo/Milan in October.  Going with a mate, is going to be football, eating pizza and drinking Peroni-tastic.

Hit me.

I have been tricked into this trip by the girlf but there is a very real chance of recreating the opening scenes of an American Werewolf in London as we are staying ina pub and she has a silly accent.

Don't mention the Alamo!

They are all bargain basement ones though.  Not as flash as they probably sound.

Sorry, that was just me "asking" if they have discussed the honeymoon trip....I don't even know when the wedding is or if it's even planned yet....none of my business and sorry for the fruit mix.

Re: Holiday thread

no this was in May. When we got engaged. quite a hit on holiday time and budget.

Hi Ben

Re: Holiday thread

Nothing booked at the moment. Need to try and sort out sonmething in Paris for mid September.

"Shnake!"

Re: Holiday thread

Okay, okay, I have a trip booked and it's kind of a biggie, at least for me.  I'm hitting Northern California/the Pacific Northwest near Labor Day for 9 days and am catching the Pavement in both Portland and Seattle.  The Portland venue - McMenamins Edgefield - looks pretty cool although I am admittedly most excited for the Seattle show to see them in a theatre like venue which is still tops for me if it can't be a small, sweaty, grimey club.

Those pills are dangerous.

Yeah, well so is geometry.

Get booking, that's only a month away.  Are you going on le train?

I haven't ever been on the eurotrain thingy, I must do that at some point.

Sounds great, IJ!!! Have a splendid 9 days!

Re: Holiday thread

Not having been to either of them, my mental image of Seattle and Portland is that they are kind of like Disneyland made up of rock clubs on every corner, sure you will have a great time if my imagination is correct.

I did 2 trips with work this year to France and Portugal, they were both great fun and I had a fair amount of free time on both so I don't feel the need to go away anywhere else this year, will probably take a week off work just to do nothing as well and that'll be it for me this year.


Gert, you have already been to Paris haven't you, I think you gave me tips? What you going to get up to this time?

Respect the J-Score!

Awesome!  Have you been out to Portland, Jest?  I was there for a week earlier this summer--great town.  You'll not want to return to Chicago.  smile   (In fact, the reason I was out there is that a friend just moved there from Chi-town.)  Anyhew, I haven't been to their Edgefield property, but their are "McMenamins" all over town.  They repurpose old & disused buildings into bars, restaurants, hotels and the like--really cool.

Yes, went with work recently, on the way back the air con was broken and it was really hot so we were all given vouchers for a free one way ticket. Had to email them to apply for it and they messed me about taking ages to do it so eventually sent me a free return ticket. Its our 2nd year anniversary in Spetember so we thought we'd take the chance to go to Paris as the wife has never been and we have 1 free Eurostar ticket. Need to figure out where to stay now.
