Holidays - 2017.

Recommended Posts

just the main things really, the castle, Edinburgh dungeon tour, Mary King's close, some nice meals and stuff. Deffo gonna go back, maybe for the Christmas markets?

 

Funnily enough one of the boys in our London office phoned me this morning & asked what Edinburgh was like at Christmas for a break, I doubt you'll find a prettier city centre in Britain in December. The Christmas markets tend to be really busy though although I suppose you get that with any sort of shopping at that time of year, there's an ice rink & the big wheel & all that in Princes St Gardens as well.

 

If you ever need any tips or anything, feel free to give us a shout.

There is quite a lot on over Christmas and New Year in Edinburgh but I much prefer the festival.

The Christmas stuff, the markets and the funfair stuff always give me that feeling of forced fun and being charged inflated prices for shite you don't really want. Clearly, loads must feel very differently about it as it's always packed

We haven't had a 'proper' summer holiday as we're currently saving for the wedding and honeymoon. I managed to squeeze in a trip to Green Man Festival and we had a few days away together in London.

 

We're having a winter holiday for the first time, for the honeymoon, over New Year. We're going to Helsinki for a couple of days before going up to Laki Inari, in Sapmi/Northern Finland where we'll be husky sledding, reindeer farming and sleeping in a glass domed cabin with the hope of seeing the Northern Lights.

Going to Croatia, Slovenia, Italy and Corfu.

Booked on for an all lads skiing break (although I'll be snowboarding) next February in Meribel (French Alps).

Went last year for the first time. Was brilliant if not fucking knackering and more than a little terrifying when you're not very good.

Just got back from Angelsey...was lovely as ever and the weather was surprisingly good

Don't want to piss on your chips, mate, but they say Cruises are for newly weds or nearly deads. Sure it'll be ace, though

Think it's Koper, Kotor in Montenegro (forgot about that) Split, Montenegro, Venice and Corfu Town with a day at sea.

Going to Monopoli in Italy in a few weeks but shitting myself as we are properly brassick. Any work I've had at all has properly dried up so it's going to have to be a cheap wine and pizza kind of week.

 

I'm sure it will still be better than being in this rainy shithole though!

Kotor is ace, there a great fish restaurant on stilts not far from the gates. Split is a bit busy these days but the national park at the end of the harbour is worth a visit. Would also recommend a Bellini at Harry's Bar in Venice, it's pricey and a bit cliche but Hemingway knew his alcohol. The Dalmatian coast that you'll be travelling along is beautiful

If you do don't go on the bucking bronco with change in your pockets. It comes out like bullets.

    • Unable to do a job as good as Caramacs' but here you go using Heinze's video  
    • The outstanding start by Diogo Jota to his Liverpool career has been acknowledged with Michael Owen saying that the Portuguese star has been the best signing of the new Premier League season.   While Thiago was seen as the prize capture by the Reds during the Summer transfer window, it has been the 23 year-old former Wolves man who has made a seamless transition scoring nine goals in just 15 appearances in all competitions.   The quality performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the  amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with through injury.   His rapid progress has caused Jurgen Klopp to shake up his front three with Roberto Firmino the man to miss out on a few occasions, a proposition that seemed highly unlikely just a few months ago.   That added depth to the front line has been seen by many as the final piece to the puzzle in Liverpool being the ultimate all-round team.   The performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the   amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with.   Speaking on BT (via Metro) the former Reds striker said that consistent form of the forward has been a pleasant surprise.   “No one could’ve predicted that he would hit the ground running like he has.   “He’s surprised me with his pace, I must admit. I think he’s far quicker than I gave him credit for.    "Against Atalanta he was electric.   ‘He just shows composure, a lot of people panic, they just get a shot off as soon as they get any form of space. ‘I just think he’s scored headers, right foot, left foot, he’s scored everything so far and he’s looked the real deal in terms of linking play.   “Nobody could have envisaged the quality that he’s shown so far.”     Fellow former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch added that the ability of Jota to adapt his game has been clearly evident.   “Klopp’s obviously seen something in him, putting him more central or along the three of the strikers that they have. ‘He looks like a poacher.    “He’s getting goals in the six-yard box, he’s got headers, he’s got all types of goals.    “He’s a top, top signing."
