I’m looking at Hamburg, Kraków or Graz but I’m not even sure why I’m looking at them!!
I just want somewhere nice to sit and drink.

Any help would be appreciated.
The wife says she can’t be arsed looking and I’m cured of searching too.


Q, don’t bother telling me about Feathersten or where ever you live!!

Why not stay in the UK ? You state you just want somewhere nice to have a drink. Well this country has some brilliant places to see and guess what they are even nice to have a drink in.
At the start of May the long range weather forecast was for 3 months of hot and dry weather
well May was just that and the start of June is proving to be just that. So the weather should be good for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately not everywhere, for most of May and so far this month we have had a very cold North Easterly blowing in from the sea resulting in temperatures in the day ranging from 13- 18 deg. with the exception of a two and three day spell over the two bank holidays.
Mostly cloudy, often with drizzle some days no sign of the sun for five or so days, yet just inland at Maidstone temperatures south of the North Downs are ten degrees warmer and a lot sunnier also.

I’ve seen a awful lot of this country and work away most of the year. It would be a bit of a busmans holiday, if you get my drift?

I want to visit Norway but a little planning is needed to take full advantage of our time.
Without doubt the most beautiful place I’ve ever been is Scotland.


Life’s just too short to do the things we want.

I worked I Bruges for 2 days, on the second night they ( the customer) took me wherever I wanted to go. We ended up wankered in some nightclub. Fucking top night, all paid for.

That’s Italy not “and the machine” before some smart arse chirps in Biggrin

Just got back from Florence. Jet2 flight Manchester to Pisa then a 45 minute train ride to Florence. Nice enough city but not our favourite, loved our day trip back to Pisa though

We loved Bruges, Did the overnight ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge, bus to Bruges, dropped our bags at our hotel about 10.00, 2 days and one night then bus back to Zeebrugge at 17.00 on the second day.

If you want a proper European drink I guess Munich in October is the place to be. We were there for the Christmas markets in December and as one of our waiters said, they have 5 million visitors in October, most of them pissed

I’ve done Finland ( arctic circle) if Norway is half as good you’d have a great time. Tho it’s expensive in those Scandinavian countries.

I believe alcohol is very expensive, although I doubt you need too many pints to find their birds attractive!
