Yup, Rome is over rated just like Paris, lot of smaller towns are far better than the capitals

The hospitality is overpriced and overrated but the archeological stuff is fantastic - the pantheon, forum, coliseum, catacombs are only the start of it. Vatican museum is superb too. Everybody should go.

Agree on the culchur being good and you comment about price and grub.

As Russ says Copenhagen is good, but don't waste time going to look at Little Mermaid

>yahoo this is brilliant, not only is it no help at all to Trousers, who totally tried to shanghai the thread for sh1ts and giggles, but it's become clear that most of us spend more time reading uafc, than anything else. We're so enlightened :red:

I'm a big Jack Reacher fan. I'd need to get back in to them as I now see there's 21 books.

You should try the Charlie Parker series by John Connolly. He's an Irish author. His stuff is a bit darker than the Reacher stuff.

Oh and Harry Bosch series by Michael Connolly.

I love Reacher. I've been a Kindle convert in recent years but I still buy Reacher in paperback (or hardback as the last one was and the next one is).

Will definitely give your recommendation a try, sounds good!

It's worth traveling all that way to a container port, just to be amazed at how little it really is.

Or you could just wander around Christiania and soak up the 'atmosphere'.

Have to say Damo, I too am a fan of both Connolly & Connelly's books. When I saw the Bosch dramas on Netflix/Amazon, can't remember which, Titus Welliver didn't "look" like the Harry Bosch I've been reading about for a couple of decades, but I've got used him and they do the books a reasonable amount of justice.

I'd always "seen" Bosch in my head a bit more like Joe Pesci in My Cousin Vinny, the greatest movie ever made. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've always wanted to introduce a few homophobes to Charlie Parker's two gay friends, Louis and Angel, then I remember the word "fiction".
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

'Nine Stories' (nine short stories, naturally) by JD Salinger. Outside of Catcher in the Rye - which is excellent, don't get me wrong - he's actually very witty.
It's the hope that kills you.
