    yeah, you're rude like a Frenchman.

    (I've actually met about three french ppl in my entire life and they were all really nice.)

    Soon going to Paris could plausibly involve being served popcorn by ScarJo.

    A chance to perspire and mumble in front of a beautiful woman is one I seldom miss.

    yeah the general flithiness takes a bit of getting used to but you do get used to it. coming back into kings cross youre struck by how modern and clean and effecient everything is.

    I met a bloke in Berlin who said he had been attracted to living there by the fact you don't have to work much to live there. He said the downside of living there was that everybody is a bit scruffy.

    I thought 'this is my home'.

    I changed trains at Paris heading either to/from my parents a few years around Christmas. Moment I stepped off the train there was a massive turd right there on the platform. Could plausibly have been either canine or human.

    I can't believe they let rats work as chefs there, too. That's beyond unhygienic.

    I don't know if you like hiking, but if you do Corsica's GR20 makes for a cheap and wonderful holiday. If you go from south to north, instead of the more popular north-south, you can avoid most of the other hikers during the day.

    If you fancy Italy, Lampedusa could be a very interesting destination. Although it might seem counter-intuitive, going there as tourist sustains the suffering local economy, which in turn makes it easier for them to maintain their hospitable attitude towards the arriving refugees. Also, as far as I've seen it is really beautiful and you can read the Leopard on the beach.

    This year I have been to Lisbon. Hoping to go Amalfi coast in September. I'd like another short solo city break before then, I'm thinking maybe Vienna. I'd like to go to Istanbul but Turkey seems a bit dodgy atm.
