    I'm on holiday at the moment @ValleyGraduate12 can you pop round and check on the house and not with a crowbar?

    So it's quite posh, nice hotel, quiet and good restaurants in the local area, loving life.

    To liven things up we took the kids to a less posh part of town. So dodgy shops selling copy stuff, Welsh bar, Irish bar, Hoops Bar (Celtic Place) and all sorts of ****ing terrible nonsense.

    So we got out alive and I'm wondering am I a snobby **** who should put up with Amstel for a Euro in a dive even though I may have to fight to win my freedom back from Bob the Armenian Irish Bar owner or should I just stick to choosing my lobster from the tank?

    Not going away this year, too much on. Got some time off in September though, might have a long weekend in Taffland, any recommendations? Looking for some wild coastline maybe. No magic mushroom festivals, did all that in the 70’s.

    Also currently away.

    Sat having a cup of tea with the sun beating down on my back and the Atlantic surf crashing 50m away with the cicadas chirping away.

    Might go in for a dip in a bit.

    I do like a decent scummy bar every now and again, some cracking people watching to be had when they’re ****ing steaming.

    Roast lamb and lager for €10.

    It’s their equivalent of a Spoons’ beer and burger meal over here.

    I like going to those places too. Though I tend to avoid tourist and go where the locals drink and eat.

    When I was away in Lo Pagan in April found this awesome Spanish bar and every pint I ordered he gave me a plate of tapas for free. Was only €1:50 a pint too.
