    Anyone been to Sorrento / Naples bay area? Fancy Italy for holiday but fuck me, you look at a map and want to go everywhere, could spend 8 weeks doing it.

    Yes, but it was rather a long time ago.  Apparently it's full of English football wankers these days.
  • That place looks lovely Coopers. Hoping to get a trip to Ireland sorted this year or early next.

    Hmm.

    Really? The pics in the brochures look very twee/non Costa del sol. Will investigate. To the TripAdvisor!
  • It's purely anecdotal, so pay me no heed.

    i went a few years ago, stayed in sorrento, was absolutely gorgeous, all we did was walk around sorrento all day every day drinking coffee and peroni unless we were on a jaunt to somewhere cool

    somewheres cool count as pompei (which is probably more amazing than you can imagine), capri, which is again, beautiful, and the trip round to positano (google image search for a treat) and amalfi further on

    ive heard of it being football wankery but it was perfectly fine when we went, more a place for italians to holiday and the odd awkward english couple, only had one night of wankery and it wasnt so bad, just a wedding party getting unruly but nothing you dont see ten times over any fri/sat night in an english town

    probably my fave place ive ever been on holiday
  • oh yeah and should you wish to enjoy a drink on your balcony, good wine can be had for little more than a euro (vesuvius has made the regions soil manna for grape vines) along with a whole wagon of more regional alcoholic pleasures, like noci (i think its called that, its made from fermented walnuts), limoncello and id wager you could get some fine amaretto for not much too

    If you're coming over, I can recommend visiting Galway and West Cork, if possible. Depends how long you're over for. And if you're in Dublin, give us a heads-up and I'll meet you for a pint. I'm sure Bugul/Chet would be around too.

    Abbot Ale pint for me and some cider pish for mrs reg
  • Currently on holiday in Russia. On route to my wives country house about 400km from Moscow. Just saw a sign post which had Riga 726km on it!! Weather has been great since I arrived on Friday night. Apparently this place is fucking remote with bears and scary drunk locals. Will take some pics and post when I'm back where the net connection doesn't require winding up by hand!

    Ooh, haven't had that. Looks nice.

    @MK
    I'm curious as to what a Russian country house looks like – especially if it's an old one! Enjoy the trip.

  • Anyone got any suggestions for late deal-type websites?  I need to book a holiday for early August.

    Nice, that would be great. I'm probably going to start in Cork to see my good friend Speedhaak, but definitely want the Dublin action too. I have plenty of family I haven't been in touch with there for a long time, but I think I'd rather get on the beers with you lot.
  • Flights or packages?

    OK, I will come to Madrid and use your house for free while you are away.  THANKS KOW.
  • Also, thanks Mod, I'll look at whatever that is when I get home.

    I may actually be here at the beginning of August, in which case you would be welcome, as long as you don't break my furniture.

    Oops, too late.  Paris now booked.  If the offer's open at a later date that would be very tempting though.

Howdy, Stranger!
