Plenty decent AirBnB options. We stayed near the Spanish steps.

You need to got to the food market at the central station. Best pizza I’ve ever had.

Na I just wandered around it, I don’t know if it’s changed but we managed to walk all the way round both levels ourselves. Been about 8 years since I was there though so might have changed.

I went with work and we organised one of those tour guides who’s with you for the day, so he took us round the Pantheon, Coliseum, Forum etc. Don’t think we were restricted at all by doing it that way.

At the airport in Mauritius. Robbie

12hr flight to Gatwick imminent. Robbie

5-6hrs in Gatwick before flying back to Edinburgh. Robbie

Off until 7th October when I get back though. Tony Hmm

Also, if I’m lucky while at Gatwick, I’ll have made it the entire honeymoon without seeing a single Celtic tap. Wow Surely some sort of record.

We were going to go there last year but didn’t have much tile to sort it out in the end, looks amazing though. 

Already got Islay and Pollenca booked up for March and May, going to see if we can fit another couple trips in before the end of the year :Quite Good

Yeah I have heard  good things and also watched that Richard Ayowade(sp) travel man on Channel 4. Looks brilliant, also fancy Tallinn. 

Pollenca's a very nice wee place,  Brilliant views up the big mountain you can drive up or hike up if you are feeling brave in that heat. Alot of nice restaurants too. Would recommend a trip to Port D'Alcudia for a walk around and bar crawl plus good restaurants too.

Trump Ha  cycling up a mountain on my holidays?

Anyone been to Brussels? Thinking about nipping over for a weekend at the end of February, wondering if it's worth the trip. Seem to be able to get flights and accommodation for about £150 all in for the 2 of us :Quite Good

A weekend would probably work but not a whole lot to see. Well maybe there is! Been a couple of times, once for football where I just got fucked up so Aye it was fine, the other with the family ... we wandered round a big bank for bit then did the Grand Place then kids stared at prozzies in windaes from the comforts of the car as I took a wrong turn on the way to Bruges/Ghent. Now those two are worth a trip. Sound

Was there for a stag 2 years ago. Was cool, would be a good city break, as most places are really, if you like to drink in bars and eat out.

One thing is that it's massive, sort of sprawled out, so be prepared to jump in a cab. Great for beer. People were pretty nice. Avoid Molenbeek.
